The Wycombe Deanery Discipleship Training Centre is looking to recruit a new Centre Leader with a vision to establish a community of young leaders serving local churches and schools as part of a Discipleship Training Programme. This will lead to stronger church/school partnerships, more young families in Deanery churches and a pipeline of young leaders for the wider church.
The Centre Leader is the main person responsible for delivering this vision, which has been funded by participating churches and a grant from Oxford Diocese. Forming and leading a team, the Centre Leader will envision churches and schools in Wycombe Deanery and beyond. They will liaise regularly with key sponsoring stakeholders, including Oxford Diocese, Wycombe Deanery and the 4U Team.
The ideal candidate will have experience of trainee / intern programmes and will be familiar with the New Wine network. They will be able to recruit, shape and lead an outstanding team.
Our target is to recruit at least four trainees in 2021, rising to 10 in 2024. The Centre Leader will be responsible for delivering or exceeding the targets, measured by the number of trainees who join the programme each September.
