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 to take the lead on the development of Open Doors partnership with churches across Scotland. We’re looking for a leader who will strengthen Christians in the suffering church through mobilising churches and Christians across Scotland to pray, give and speak out on their behalf. This role represents a strategic opportunity to influence and advocate on behalf of persecuted Christians around the world.
Are you a leader who can bridge and build relationships with the church in Scotland 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.

Closing date: Friday 2nd September 2022, Noon

Together, we can reach those where persecution hits hardest.
