Do you have a passion for seeing Arts students equipped to live and speak for Jesus during their time at university and after they graduate? Arts students face unique challenges and opportunities on their courses and will graduate to profoundly impact society and the Church. The aim of the Arts Network is to equip students to make the connections between the gospel and their art practise and to train students to be Christ-centred leaders in their sphere of influence.
Working with students, UCCF Staff Workers and Associate Staff Workers across the UK, the Arts Network Co-ordinator resources and trains Arts students to make them as effective as they can be in living and speaking for Jesus in their academic context. The postholder will be based in London, working with Arts universities and faculties in the region, primarily University of Arts London Christian Union.
We are looking for someone who has a heart to see Arts students thrive as they live and speak for Christ in their field. At the heart of the work are skills to help students think and live biblically, and the ability to disciple, motivate and influence students to share the gospel. You will also need to be an Arts graduate, familiar with the culture of university life in order to reach non-Christian students and be willing to raise financial support towards your employment costs.
To equip you for this strategic ministry, staff follow a first-rate four-year training curriculum in theology, biblical studies, mission, apologetics, church history and ministry skills, which both enables staff in their ministry day-to-day and prepares them for future ministry, whether cross-cultural mission, church ministry or serving in the workplace. They are also supported and cared for by a Team Leader, and equipped through their regional team, meeting regularly with them for study, prayer and fellowship.
