Vacancy : Assistant Pastor

Assistant pastor for Shepshed Word of Life Church

Applications are invited for the role of assistant pastor at Shepshed Word of Life Church. Shepshed is a town near junction 23 of the M1 in Leicestershire, with a population of 14,000 which is scheduled to grow rapidly with the building of several thousand new homes. We are an independent evangelical church formed in 2013 by the union of two long-standing churches in the town.

We are looking for a man with a heart for teaching God’s Word, for the pastoral care of God’s people, and for making known the Good News of Jesus Christ to those outside.

The role includes:

• Preaching and teaching
• Pastoral care
• Involvement in evangelism
• One-to-one discipleship
• Devoting time to prayer

We are looking for someone who shows evidence of a developing gift to preach and teach, and who would appreciate learning alongside an eldership team as part of his further training. The appointment is full time, though we are open to the possibility of combining it with further formal training.

Please submit letter of application, accompanied by a CV and any other relevant information to [email protected], marked for the attention of pastor Ian Hilder.
