WHO WE ARE:
Scripture Union Scotland's vision is to see all the children and young people of Scotland exploring the Bible and responding to the significance of Jesus. We are a national charity, with around 100 staff and over 2,000 volunteers. Our activities take place in schools, outdoor activity centres, and churches.
The Crying Out Loud Trust (COLT) employed several schools workers between 2011 and 2019. The Trustees and Management Group of COLT have now passed funds over to SU Scotland to enable that work to be continued by SU Scotland. We are seeking a part-time Schools Ministry Coordinator to join our Local Ministries Team and be part of this impactful ministry.
Work as part of the Local Ministries team, to develop SU Scotland’s ministry in schools across Clackmannanshire.
Working closely with SU Scotland staff, volunteers in the area and local churches, you would be involved in:
- Visiting existing SU Groups to encourage and support both leaders and young people
- Launching new lunchtime or after school SU groups
- Recruiting and equipping new volunteers, and preparing them for service on SU teams
- Promoting senior pupil events and our COmMISSION programme for young leaders
- Promoting SU Holidays, and Clackmannashire regional weekends
- Sharing the opportunities and needs of SU Scotland ministry with supporters and churches in Clackmannshire
- Raising support to enable ministry to happen within the area.
Who we are looking for:
The successful applicant will work alongside the existing Stirling and Clackmannanshire Regional Worker. Ideally you will have experience of schools’ work and Christian ministry with children and/or young people; someone who has led teams of volunteers and is a confident communicator of Biblical truth with a wide age range of young people. You should be willing to work from home, with access to an office base in Lendrick Muir, and be prepared to support and grow SU ministry in the county. The ‘term time only’ nature of this post limits involvement in residential work and church holiday clubs, but an awareness of this work will help to promote it.
For this post, it is important that you able to demonstrate a commitment to SU Scotland’s ethos, working principles and vision. It is also an Occupational Requirement (Equality Act - part 1, schedule 9), that the post-holder is a committed Christian.
The appointment will be subject to a satisfactory PVG Scheme Disclosure.
