We are looking for an inspiring and strategic youth team leader who will enable and drive forward a new and exciting project in Warwick. We hope to appoint someone who will raise up young disciples in the church and reach out to the local community with God's love.
The West Warwick Youth & Schools project is a new partnership between St Michael’s and St Paul’s which is underway with the arrival of a Message Trust youth bus to spearhead outreach, and a partnership with Thrive Youth Ministries to equip and grow local churches in retaining and discipling young people.
The postholder, will manage the Schools Link Worker, Intern Team and Children’s Worker and be responsible for the development and implementation of strategy as we seek to increase our reach into local schools and grow the numbers of young people and their families connected with our churches as well as being invested in reaching and serving the community
The post-holder will model discipleship and create a culture in which the whole church plays their part to encourage young people to grow in a lively, committed and radical faith in Jesus Christ. They will strive to enable all young people we reach in the church and community to hear, respond and grow in the gospel of Jesus by the power of his Holy Spirit.
Our Vision At St Michael’s Is Simple: To Play Our Part In A Move Of God’s Spirit, Seeing His Life Flow From The Church Bringing Transformation To Our Communities, Our Wider Town And Beyond.
Our mission is: to raise a church of prayerful, passionate, missionary disciples of Jesus, empowered to serve God’s plan to renew the whole of creation.
This vision for a move of God is echoed in our history.
St Michael’s used to be the ‘barracks church’ – soldiers would march up to worship from what is now Hampton Magna. They were trained and sent out into battle all over the world; we want to recapture that image, training, equipping and sending God’s people. More than that, in the year 2000, an earthquake hit central England with the epicenter of Budbrooke and, more specifically, St Michael’s itself. Our belief is that something amazing will flow out from the church and have wider impact in the local area.
As we continue to pray for this, we seek to equip the church to live and grow:
in our identity as God’s children,
in our walk as Jesus’ disciples,
and in ministering his love to each other, our communities and networks in faith, power and authority.
Set in the middle of a number of communities, we are committed to form patterns of mission together that reach into each area that we serve, as well as the networks many of us share and live within.
