Job description

BMS World Mission is recruiting four key leadership roles, within its newly restructured Department for World Mission.

  • Head of Programme - Developing Resilience (Most marginalised)
  • Head of Programme - Evangelism and Discipleship (Least marginalised)
  • Head of Programme - People on the Move
  • Head of Programme - Capacity Strengthening and Cross-cutting (themes)

Are you a leader with experience in leading and empowering dispersed teams in diverse and complex mission contexts? Do you have a passion to see some of the most marginalised and least evangelised communities around the world experience abundant life?

Do you have exceptional interpersonal and communication skills, with a high level of intercultural sensitivity and leadership experience? Do you also have the ability to lead teams towards collaborative, fruitful mission impact? Have you worked with or supported organisations in a variety of contexts, including in the Global South? Do you have a commitment to seeing mission from everywhere to everywhere, where the members of the Body of Christ share in mission collaboratively? And do you bring significant experience in one or more of the following areas of BMS’ mission priorities?

  • Relief and/or International/Community development
  • Evangelism, discipleship, and church planting
  • Refugee ministry in diverse contexts
  • Organisational capacity strengthening, gender justice or creation stewardship

We are looking for four individuals to take on these new and strategic roles within BMS.

Working closely with the Director for Mission, the Heads of Programme (HoPs) will take responsibility for one of BMS’ key programmatic areas of work (Most Marginalised, Least Evangelised, People on the Move) or its Capacity Strengthening and Cross-cutting themes (including gender justice and creation stewardship), while also sharing in the team leadership of the Department for World Mission.

HoPs will line manage specialist leads and oversee the management of BMS mission workers and others, within the team they are responsible for. Oversight of the programme will involve ensuring BMS delivers on its agreed strategic goals and is able to adapt to the changing missional needs of our work with partners around the world.

The successful applicant will be a committed Christian. The nature of this role means that this is a specific occupational requirement.
