Young Adults Pastor Opportunity

Published: Friday, 03 March 2017

Established for over 80 years, Ashburton Baptist (ABC) is a church recognised by many for its ‘wide-open welcome’ and strong community focus. At its core is an inclusive nature and passion for creative and practical expressions of ‘living out’ Jesus’ message through a variety of social justice initiatives and relational and caring ministries in the local and wider communities. It is also passionate about nurturing and growing its community from within, so that people are not just made welcome, but also have the opportunity to engage as well as be supported - to grow spiritually and otherwise - and to thrive.

Critical to the continued growth of any faith community is the way it nurtures the needs and development of its youth and young adults. ABC has a strong history of finding ways to engage, connect, support and give voice to this significant cohort with its capacity to add so much to our greater community.

With this in mind, we seek to appoint an Associate Pastor with a focus on Youth and Young Adults. We would like this person to start in the role as soon as possible.
