Employer: Christ Church Jacksonville Anglican
Closes: When position is filled
Pastor of Discipleship: 25-29 hours/ week Christ Church Jacksonville Anglican CCJAX is located in the western outskirts of Jacksonville FL. We are accepting applications for our Associate/ Youth Pastor position. Over the past year the church has been experiencing exciting growth both spiritually and numerically. The position will primarily focus on our youth ministry but a secondary expectation will be oversight of our media ministry. The complete picture is this: When evaluating the primary hinderances to growth at CCJAX it is clear that there is a vital need to upgrade our youth ministry (about 10 students), and with developing and launching our presence across the social network sites. We are looking for a self starter with strong energy who enjoys creating and developing ministry from a start up level. A little about us: We are a diverse church economically, ethnically and spiritually (meaning we have many who have served God for decades and some who are young in their faith walk). CCJAX is Anglican in tradition and operates with a “3 streams mentality”, which means we embrace the evangelical, charismatic and sacramental expressions in our church life. Theologically, we draw from broad sources, from the Early Church Fathers to more modern writers such as Leonard Ravenhill, John Bevere, John Wesley and E.M Bounds to name a few. We have two Sunday services. The first, is blended musically and draws on the foundation of our Anglican history. The other is a more contemporary, “nondenominational” style. The two services together total around 175 people. Our Wednesday nights are a mix of potluck dinner, worship time and Bible Study for the whole family. Finally, we have a strong Celebrate Recovery ministry on Friday nights that enables us to reach many in the local community that are lost and hurting.
