Spear Assistant Coach
About River Church
River Church Ipswich is an HTB Network church plant in the town centre of Ipswich, which launched in September 2021 and has already grown quickly into a thriving resource church. Our dream is to see Ipswich overflowing with life. Our purpose is to love God, love Ipswich, and love life. Our goals are to be Spirit-filled, people-empowering, fun-loving, and abundantly-living. Amy and Matt Key were invited by the Bishop of St Edmundsbury and Ipswich to plant River Church, with a focus on reaching students, young adults, and young families with the good news of Jesus.
At Resurgo, we believe that if we work together, we can transform society for the better. So, our mission is to inspire and equip organisations to bring about ambitious and sustainable social change - and we do that through our expertise in coaching and impact.
Our flagship initiative, the Spear Programme, supports 16-24 year olds to overcome the barriers they face and thrive in employment. We also work with unemployed adults through Re-Work, and deliver corporate coaching to businesses through Resurgo Consulting.
Our culture strives for excellence and fun. We bring both our professional heads and passionate hearts to work; we honour each others’ successes, encourage honest feedback, and go the extra mile when we need to.
River Church have partnered with Resurgo to launch a new Spear Centre in the heart of Ipswich. They are looking for a new Assistant Coach, to work alongside the Centre Manager, as part of the church team at River Church to deliver the Spear Programme, equipping and empowering unemployed 16–24 year olds to overcome barriers to employment and turn their lives around by moving into sustainable work or further education.
