Location     Langley (Borough of Sandwell)
Details This is an exciting opportunity for a Pioneer Evangelist in this industrial area in Sandwell, on the west Birmingham border. This is an area of significant deprivation, made up principally of urban estates.

You will communicate the good news by word, action and lifestyle, working as a team with the Lead Evangelist within the new Centre of Mission established by Church of England Birmingham and Church Army. One particular, but not exclusive, focus will be younger generations: parents, young people, and young adults.

The successful candidate will love Jesus, love people, be an innovator who brings about change in people's lives and in communities, and enjoys gathering and encouraging small teams. If you're passionate about unlocking God's potential in people's lives, please apply.
