Pastor/Senior Leader Vacancy

Grace Community Church is an evangelical church based in Maidstone with a vision to serve Jesus and His kingdom in our local community. The church is in fellowship with the Assemblies of God in the UK.

We are seeking a new pastor with vision and energy to lead the church into a new season. We are a community based church and as such our vision is to be a focal part of the local neighbourhood, wanting to serve and be a blessing, and making Jesus known. We are looking to recruit a gifted preacher and teacher to work within the church leadership team as pastor/senior leader. The successful person will have evident leadership and communication skills to enable Grace Community Church to grow, and to reach our community with the gospel.

Salary: £25,000 - £29,000, depending on experience. A mileage allowance is also available.

Holidays: 25 days per year (maximum of five Sundays per year, plus Bank Holidays)

Description of the church/town/location: 

Grace Community Church is a family church of around 100 adults and children who gather together on Sunday mornings as well as in other mid-week activities that seek to grow and equip people as followers of Jesus. We work closely with a local school and engage with our local community more generally, with some community groups using our facilities, including a local pre-school. In addition we have strong relationships with other churches across Maidstone as well as having links with ministries and churches overseas.

The church currently employs one full time pastor (the post being advertised here) and a part time administrator.

Located in the south of Maidstone, in an area of private and social housing, the current church has been operating for 30 years, although there has been a church on the site for 90 years. We are blessed to have our own building and are engaged in a £350,000 building project to upgrade our premises.
