    Youth Worker- New Life Church Castle Douglas

    2year Contract- Part Time
    Closing Date- 15th October 2019

    Thank you for your interest in this vacancy. New Life Church Castle Douglas is part of the Elim Pentecostal Church.

    As a growing Christian denomination and large charity, Elim is made up of people who give of their time, talent and resources not simply because of a brand but because of a compelling cause. Elim is committed to sharing and communicating the good news of Jesus Christ creatively, compassionately and courageously in every community. Our volunteers and staff are the key to achieving that purpose. We are dedicated to developing a culture where collectively we can make a difference and individually we can thrive.

    The Elim Pentecostal Church is a growing Movement of more than 550 Christian congregations in the UK and Ireland. Elim was founded in 1915 by George Jeffreys, a young Christian from Maesteg in South Wales. Jeffreys and a group of friends, known as the Elim Evangelistic Band, preached, started churches and witnessed a move of God that was characterised by miraculous healings and an explosion in the number of people becoming Christians.

    In a world that can feel like a desert, our 21st-century churches seek to be a place of spiritual resource within their communities. The founders wanted the name of their new Movement to express their vision and values, and so chose ‘Elim’, the name of an oasis in the Bible that the people of Israel discovered as they wandered through the desert. It provided shade and refreshment to all who encountered it.
