Vacancy: Minister (0.7FTE), Awatere joint venture, Diocese of Nelson (Closes 1st November 2019)

Do you have a passion for pastoral care in a rural setting, and would you like to lead a strong evangelical team committed to growing disciples?

The Awatere Christian Joint Venture is a community church of Anglican and Presbyterians. We are seeking a 0.7 FTE Minister, or we would consider a lay person intending to work towards ordination. Income could be supplemented by other work available within the district.  In our rural parish we have a large number of seasonal workers from the Pacific Islands with whom we work closely.

Our aim is to know Jesus and to make Him known. This we seek to do by building the family of God within and through the community.
