Do you have a good understanding of the local Church across London and a desire to connect with and serve leaders and churches

Are you passionate about the Global Church and committed to strengthening the ministry of the Gospel through the local church where persecution is most extreme?

Do you feel energised by the thought of connecting the ‘Church’ locally and globally so that awareness is raised, the persecuted church is strengthened, and faith is ‘mutually enriched’ (Romans 1).

Open Doors is a Christian charity that is looking to recruit active, practicing Christians to stand in the GAP (give, act, pray) on behalf of persecuted Christians worldwide. Hostility, violence, and abuse of Christians around the globe is on the increase. Open Doors works in over 50 countries to ensure that those facing such persecution are not forgotten, but are strengthened in their faith, to remain strong and resilient in the face of persecution continuing to share Jesus no matter the cost.

We have an exciting opportunity for a dynamic and inspirational Christian* leader build on our existing relationships and develop new relationships with churches and networks across London so that we can extend our influence in the region with more organisations, churches, and individuals, resulting in increased awareness and standing with the persecuted church, and the whole church being strengthened in faith as followers of Jesus.

Are you a leader who can bridge and build relationships with the church in London in order to raise awareness and engagement with the persecuted church globally. You will be an individual with vision and skill to increase the depth and breadth of our current investment and to lead on significantly expanding our influence. You will be able to communicate and inspire, build teams with our volunteers and develop and deliver a strategy for engagement and influence.

You will have the opportunity to use your God-given character and talents to contribute to the work of Open Doors and to work with integrity and with purpose. We offer a flexible role with a good work-life balance with huge job satisfaction and the chance to shape and influence your work. You will work with some inspirational people and there are plenty of opportunities to develop your career.
