FFWPU North London is seeking to recruit an individual to take a lead to explore the possibilities for the younger generation of FFWPU members in the North London area towards the establishment of a ministry that can encourage and support young leaders who can positively impact society by empowerment through the study and application of Unification Principles.
The person in this role will work in parallel with the current pastor, Jeff Bateman, building relationships primarily with the second generation of FFWPU members in the North London region. Members in this group range from 18 to 30 or 40 years old and include students, those starting working life, as well as those who have started families. The role therefore requires an exploration of the concerns and needs of these members and how their lives of faith can be supported.
This may lead to:
- Organising workshops that teach Divine Principle and raise leadership skills
- Engaging in activities to cultivate relationships amongst student and young adult members
- Attending meetings of the North London Community Committee (4-5 meetings a year, of about 2 hours held locally) and the national Council of Communities (3-4 weekends a year, in various locations around the country)
- Right to work in the UK (essential)
- Exemplary standard of faith and character (essential)
- Good communication in English language, spoken and written (essential)
- Personal relationship skills; ability to engage others (essential)
- Experience of teaching Divine Principle and speaking in public (preferable)
The term of employment would be a two-year contract, renewable at the end of the period, with a probationary period of six to nine months. The line manager will be Jeff Bateman.
A modest financial package is offered: £400 per month, nominally for a commitment of 10 hours per week, although working times and hours are flexible. Travel expenses for meetings and other costs related to the role will be provided at the discretion of the North London finance committee.
Notice of interest should be sent to Chris Le Bas, chairman of North London Community Church.
