Cornerstone Christian Fellowship is seeking to recruit an enthusiastic individual to work with its young people and develop a youth ministry in the church and wider Cumbernauld community in 2021.
An independent, community-focussed and Bible-believing church based at Cornerstone House in Cumbernauld town centre, Cornerstone Christian Fellowship currently serves the local community in a variety of ways, one of which is through its excellent youth work and youth ministry provision.
To lead and support this activity, a suitable candidate is being sought to fill an exciting new part-time Youth Development Worker post that has been created by the church. The successful applicant will be able to teach and relate to young people, with a particular focus on being able to work positively and responsibly with young people aged 12 and over in a Christian environment.
A good sense of fun and creativity are essential attributes required by the post holder, as is a pastoral heart and aspiration to see young people grow in their relationship with Christ. Relevant experience in youth work and transferrable skills are desirable and will be considered by the selection panel.
Given uncertainty over COVID-19 restrictions, it may be that initial activity undertaken by the Youth Development Worker will be carried out online. As such, applicants should have the necessary competencies and means to coordinate youth work digitally from home where required. Depending on circumstances, free board and accommodation may be provided to the post holder.
The Youth Development Worker must be a practising Christian and have a heart for God, as well as a desire to grow in faith. There is an occupational requirement for the post holder to be a Christian in accordance with the Equality Act 2010 (Schedule 9, Part 1, Section 3).
The candidate should also agree with the church’s vision, which is that Cornerstone Christian Fellowship would act as a ‘light on a hill’ in accordance with Matthew 5:14, and that it would be a ‘voice in the wilderness’ in alignment with Isaiah 40:3.
Ultimately, Cornerstone Christian Fellowship strives to reflect God’s Kingdom within the Cumbernauld community in order that it might attract others to the Kingdom. In this respect, its people seek to be ambassadors of Christ, as depicted in 2 Corinthians 5:20.
The post is initially fixed-term for one year at 16 hours per week, paying a salary of £9,984 per annum. There is the possibility that the role will be extended and expanded beyond one year if a positive impact is made and future funding can be secured. Any job offer is subject to the result of a DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) Check.
Whilst the post holder will primarily have a focus on youth work, they will also be expected to be aware and supportive of other community activities coordinated by the church, including Bethlehem House of Bread Food Bank, the Alpha Course and debt advice. As a registered charity, Cornerstone Christian Fellowship also works closely with a range of community partners, including Cornerstone House Centre, Cornerstone Cafe, Christians Against Poverty (CAP) and Cumbernauld Together, amongst others.
