Associate Minister – St Stephens Community Church


We are looking for an Associate Minister to join the ministry team of the St Stephens/ Tahunanui/ Mamaku Grove ‘collective’. This is an exciting and newly initiated collective of ministries that seeks to know God and make him known through local community engagement, intentional discipleship and sending/serving outside of ourselves. It is made up of St Stephens Community Anglican Church, Tahunanui Community Support and Outreach, Kaleidoscope Ministries and Mamaku Grove Retreat.


The person filling this roll will work closely with the Lead Minister and the other key leaders of the communities of faith that form the collective.  Within this, they will take on full responsibility for St Stephens Community Church and its church based ministries – providing direct ‘on-the-ground’ leadership and oversight to grow and shape St Stephens as a vibrant, Christ-centred community of faith that looks outward to the local community and wider missional opportunities, while maintaining and cultivating its place in the Nelson diocese.


The key areas of engagement will be:

  • Vision and Leadership: Promote, carry and communicate the vision of St Stephens Community Church and the wider collective.
  • Raising-up and equipping: Empower and equip others to exercise their skills and gifts in the life of the church, establishing effective discipleship, mentoring, team building and delegation.
  • Teaching and Preaching: Faithfully preach and teach the biblical foundations of Christian truth, leading people into a deeper exploration and fuller understanding of the gospel.
  • Prayer, Worship and Fellowship: Build up the local body of Christ through vibrant, transformational prayer and worship; providing opportunities to meet regularly in smaller groups to aid fellowship and build authentic community.
  • Mission and Outreach: Build strong bonds and visibility in the wider community, showing love through service, seeking opportunities to witness and sharing financially and otherwise in the mission of the Church.
  • Personal health and relationships: Maintain a vibrant personal faith and healthy balanced lifestyle, respecting appropriate boundaries in all relationships and developing strong, effective inter-personal skills.


We will be looking for someone who loves Jesus, has a heart to see God’s Kingdom grow, is interested in growing in their leadership abilities, and willing to work as part of a team.  This is a full time role.
