The Diocese of Down & Dromore
in association with
Through Faith Missions
We are seeking to recruit men and women to train as ‘Diocesan Evangelists’.
An information evening is planned in Willowfield Church on Friday 8 November at 7.30pm.
The training course is accredited by St John’s College, Nottingham. It can be taken over either a 2 year or 3 year period. This distance learning, practical course in Evangelism is taught by evangelists and will equip participants with skills in evangelism. It includes an exciting core unit on ‘The Life of the Evangelist’, which provides face to face contact between students and some of the best evangelists in the UK and in Ireland.
This is a high quality course which will require a full day (not a set day, but a day of your choice) every week from those in training. The course will cost £2,500 and in the case of those selected by the Diocese of Down & Dromore for training, half of the cost will be met by the diocese. It is envisaged that the remainder will be shared between the participant and their parish.
Those wishing to work in Down & Dromore as Diocesan Evangelists are invited to apply in the first instance by contacting Mary in the Bishop’s Office firstname.lastname@example.org and sending her a copy of your most recent CV, together with a covering letter, which should include the contact details for two referees. In addition, please arrange for your rector to send a reference for you directly to Mary. The deadline for applications and receipt of the requested information is Friday 22 November, 2013.
Successful candidates will commence the course in January 2014 and the diocese will attempt to help find concurrent voluntary or paid placements as evangelists in Down & Dromore.
Interviews for potential candidates will be held on 28 November, 2013.
