Uniting Mission and Education has been refocussing on the exciting and critical task of providing leadership and resourcing to the Synod in the areas of leadership, discipleship, ministry and mission. A significant part of the team are involved in providing mission resourcing, United Theological College, ministry formation, and in the Centre for Ministry activities.
There are expansions planned in the areas of rural ministry (Saltbush) and Synod has provided additional funds to begin fund growth strategies including the youth program (Pulse) and strategic leadership in wider mission/outreach possibilities.
We are particularly interested in applications from those with strategic leadership experience and we are currently particularly interested in those with experience and skills in mission/outreach, leadership formation and tertiary education. We are seeking cultural and gender diversity in the Board composition.
The Board is currently reviewing whether meetings will be monthly or bimonthly in future.
Send your expression of interest to CharmaineP@nswact.uca.org.au. Please include your reflection on how you believe you could add value to the UME Board along with your CV/profile information including other Board experience.
Closing Date: 15 June 2018
