Mission Pioneer (OPL)

methodist church
Up Holland, West Lancashire

The Mission Pioneer would help to lead the work of starting new Christian communities, and developing mission activities, to reach the 42,000 people in the local area around Up Holland. This is centred around the Methodist Church’s commitment to connect with New People, and to form New Places, by God’s grace, that express the love of Christ so that we can all be transformed. At The Beacon Churches, we believe that this is only possible through church unity expressed in effective local ecumenical relationships.

The role would involve sharing the gospel with people from different cultures, including young adults, through:

- Identifying opportunities for mission in contexts that are unreached by churches, and leading the development of new 

  mission activities in these places.
- Finding new ways of sharing the gospel with young adults.
- Contributing to the development of a pipeline for missional leaders by encouraging and inspiring disciples to be actively 

  involved in mission.
- Leading through personal example of prayer and having conversations with people who are enquiring about or new to 

  Christian faith to help them grow as disciples
- Supporting the growth of new Christian communities, including those which have been recently planted, through developing 

  and leading creative forms of worship

There is flexibility within the role for the successful candidate’s gifts, passions, and hopes for exploring vocation and gaining new skills, to be incorporated.
