Programme Developer – Ministry Training for New Migrant Leaders

In Aotearoa New Zealand, there are many passionate churches and congregations made up of migrants worshiping in their own language and in a style that reflects their cultural background.

These include Samoan, Chinese, Korean, Indian, Russian and Cambodian fellowships.

At Carey we wish to serve the leadership of these churches in pastoral and theological training.

We are looking for a Programme Developer to develop a bespoke Ministry Training Programme for new migrant Church leaders. Are you the right person to coordinate this training?
