Our partners are looking for a minister to be placed in North Africa.
A key requirement for this position is a commitment to minister to an international, multi-ethnic congregation.
The community is approximately 100, of whom about 65 are students from sub-Saharan Africa and the rest expatriates including a growing number of diplomatic individuals and families with children.
You will seek to work collaboratively with national leaders and other local ministry leaders to provide leadership for indigenous home groups in different cities. You will lead on ministerial responsibilities as appropriate by coordinating with members of the congregation.
You will bear special responsibility for pastoral ministry and outreach in the international, English-speaking community and in the local, Arabic-speaking community.
We are committed to the safeguarding and protection of the people we serve, our partners, our volunteers, and our staff. We believe that every child or adult we come into contact with has the right to be protected from all forms of harm and abuse. Our recruitment and selection processes are in line with our Safeguarding Policy and the SCHR Misconduct Disclosure Scheme, which CMS is a member of as part of our commitment to safeguarding.
Our core values of being pioneering, relational, faithful and evangelistic are integral to everything we do, and we work hard to ensure that every member of staff is valued, supported and encouraged to continually learn and develop their skills.
