West Highland Centre of Mission: A Priest in Charge/Ordained Lead Evangelist

Church Army & Scottish Episcopal Diocese of Argyll and The Isles

Come and lead this exciting partnership between the Scottish Episcopal Church and Church Army.  Rooted in one of the most beautiful places in Scotland, this project will build up the life and presence of the six church communities in this area, including Appin, Glencoe and Kinlochleven. With the existing ministry teams and the help of a Pioneer Evangelist, who you will help recruit, you will:

  • Confidently lead and develop the existing church communities of the Scottish Episcopal Church pastorally and liturgically;
  • Establish the Church Army Centre of Mission
  • Grow and resource the inherited Church Community to meet the needs of those who do not currently attend church
  • Create new mission and evangelism opportunities of all kinds throughout the region

The work will be enabled by the Diocesan “Vision for Mission” process and Church Army’s “DARE” strategy:

Doing evangelism ◦Advocating evangelism ◦Resourcing evangelism ◦Enabling evangelism

You will be an ordained Anglican priest (or be ordained in a church in full communion with the SEC) with a proven track record in team building and evangelism. You will be enthusiastic and energetic with a passion to see people find faith in Christ.

Fully supported by the Diocese and Church Army, the right Priest/Ordained Evangelist will help the church in the West Highlands work towards a sustainable vision for mission and church growth.
