Missions Coordinator

This is your opportunity to lead the largest evangelistic movement in New South Wales each summer.

Scripture Union Family Missions, also known as “beach missions”, mobilise over 1500 volunteers each summer to share the good news of Jesus Christ in holiday parks and local communities.

The Missions Coordinator, in partnership with the Missions Committee, oversees the operation of Scripture Union Family Missions and Summerlife missions in New South Wales.

Applicants should have proven experience with:

  • Leadership of volunteer movements and groups
  • Pastoral care of volunteers and staff
  • Evangelistic ministry
  • External stakeholder management (for example, holiday parks and local councils)
  • Successful lodgement of development applications
  • Risk management and child protection procedures
  • Strategic planning
  • Budgeting and resourcing
  • Ministry growth
  • Incident response

A mature Christian faith and exemplary Christian life are essential.

Strong interpersonal skills, personal organisation and experience in negotiation and conflict resolution are preferred. The successful applicant must be available to work in summer school holidays and out-of-hours, and visit missions across New South Wales.

At Scripture Union, we work with a relatively small number of staff who recruit, motivate, train, equip and support a larger number of volunteers with whom they work in partnership.

Staff and volunteers work under Scripture Union’s aims, beliefs and working principles.

The position description is attached. For more information, please contact Andrew Kingsmill, Missions Committee Chair, on 0422 163 924.
