Are you interested in serving God in a beautiful northern country with a lot of nature? Are you ready for the exciting Nordic adventure? Maybe this is something for you!
The Helsinki Church of Christ is looking for an evangelist (couple) to help and inspire us to grow in numbers, in knowing God and following Jesus. We are ready and looking forward to see how God will continue to inspire us and grow the church. We are a part of the Nordic fellowship of churches, six churches scattered throughout Finland, Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Iceland numbering 310 disciples.
Currently the church in Helsinki is 40 disciples, mostly families and mature disciples. We have a leadership group in place ready to support and work with you. You will also be provided with on-going training for the mission in the Nordics from other leaders of our family of churches, and receive mentoring by Chris and Kim Reed, in Stockholm.
Your main duties and responsibilities would be:
- Lead together with the leader’s group to mature the church in faith, to grow the church in numbers of disciples and train new leaders
- Encourage and inspire the disciples
- Prepare the disciples for works of service and lead them to an evangelistic lifestyle through your personal example as well as through planning of evangelistic events
- Preach and teach in services and family meetings
- Build spiritual unity and relationships in our church as well as among our U.K., Ireland and Nordic church family
Key qualities and experience:
- Strong personal faith and focus on the mission
- Excellent knowledge of the Bible
- Love for God and people (understanding)
- Experience in ministry, leading and preaching
- Ability to lead a mature church and help in spiritual needs
- Good at building friendships and a good listener
- Humble to receive feedback
- Plan to stay minimum three years
Finland is a beautiful country with pristine nature and the most lakes of almost any country in the world. You will become part of a family of very faithful, soft-hearted and hospitable disciples, who are simply looking to be led to doing great things for God. You will have the opportunity not to just evangelize a neighborhood, or a region surrounding a city, but the opportunity to think, dream and participate in the evangelization of an entire country. We would also provide you with the opportunity to be educated in the Finnish language and culture, as well as on-going ministry training through conferences and discipling.
We are looking forward to hearing from you soon!
