LONDON CITY MISSION IS PART-WAY THROUGH A MASSIVE RECRUITMENT DRIVE FOR MISSION WORKERS WHO CAN HELP EQUIP CHURCHES TO EVANGELISE AND MAKE DISCIPLES IN LONDON’S LEAST REACHED COMMUNITIES
We are recruiting for dozens of roles in the mission field in the next year – a combination of team leaders, missionaries and mission associates.
Now is an incredibly exciting and hopeful time to join us as we are in a time of growth and change.
Working as a catalyst alongside the church, our vision is to see more workers raised up for the harvest, with many more people from the least reached communities in London hearing about Jesus for the very first time and responding to the good news.
Among other roles, we are recruiting to replace to 17 missionaries who left us last year, most leaving as very firm friends of the mission, and with fond farewells, following difficult decisions, as they sought to discern if the new vision was what the Lord was calling them to.
We advertised for the first wave in September 2020 and are very excited to be looking for people who have a heart and a passion for reaching the least reached and want to do that in partnership with churches.
Our desire is for people to come to faith through God’s work in their hearts, and to join a church. This happens most naturally when churches are involved in their journey to faith from the outset, so we are working alongside churches, training envisioning and equipping them in evangelism.
We’ve worked very hard to consider what kind of skills we need for the future. We need to hold on to our trust in God, that he will continue to lead us.
Part of the process is being agile and flexible in our recruitment because God may have a different type of individual for a role than we first thought. We would really appreciate your prayers for God to guide us in wisdom and discernment and for us to be bold in our decisions.
SUPPORT US IN PRAYER
Please pray for everybody who is involved in recruitment for the new roles – those who are applying, the selection panels and the existing teams as they welcome new members.
Pray that the roles are filled with evangelists who have the passion and gifts to come alongside churches, inspiring and equipping them to share the gospel with the least reached in London.
