As our ministry continues to grow, we are looking for someone who is passionate about raising up and releasing the next generation of young Christian leaders to join our amazing staff team.

Through this role you will have the opportunity to develop and implement a strong vision for our leadership development ministry. This will allow you to both shape our current ministry to over 400 active volunteers; equipping them for leadership both on camp, as well as in their church, school, work and university; but also to have the opportunity to continue to grow the ministry beyond its current shape, including the development of new programs and partnerships.

This role, alongside the CYC Ministries Manager and as part of the senior leadership team, also plays a significant role in the oversight and direction of CYC Ministries.

  • Facilitating our one year Internship Program, engaging young leaders through a deeper formation experience
  • Developing leadership training opportunities to equip schools, churches and other partner organisations
  • Working with the staff team to engage with, and care for, our volunteers

This job is a great fit for you if:
