Mission Educator, St John’s Theological College.
The Anglican College of St John the Evangelist is wishing to appoint a full-time Mission Educator.
The role will be broad in scope and application. It will include an holistic approach to local and global mission education, based around the ACC 5 Mission Statement, incorporated in the constitution of our three Tikanga Anglican Church of Aotearoa, New Zealand and Polynesia.
The Mission Educator reports directly to the Principal/Manukura of the College, but would liaise with Provincial organisations such as the Anglican Missions’ Board, the Church Missionary Society and the Anglican Church Army, however, in essence the role is to provide teaching, training and mentoring, as a member of the faculty of the College, in ways that will assist the Anglican Church to effectively minister in a multi-cultural, multi-religious, post-Christendom era.
In brief: to assist in developing an ‘outward-focussed’, mission-engaged culture within the College; with ripple effects into the Province.
Person specifications beyond a need for tertiary level teaching qualifications and mission experience (in the broadest sense of that term), the appointee will need superior creative communications skills to be able to link at all levels of the Church and across Tikanga, excellent planning and reporting experience along with a willingness to undertake some travel within the Province. The appointee will be fully engaged in College community life, along with fellow faculty members, to ensure that the seminary nature of the college is developed and enriched. The successful applicant would hopefully begin during May of 2014.
Applications close on Friday 14 February.
Further details can be obtained from the Principal/Manukura, Rev Canon Tony Gerritsen; firstname.lastname@example.org 09 521 2725
