A Call for Expressions of Interest

From The Venerable Chester Burrows, Archdeacon of Waitotara, South Taranaki
Breaking New Ground – A Call for Expressions of Interest

Did you ever hear of such a thing as a Missioner? The Archdeaconry of Waitotara which extends from Stratford to the north, Opunake to the west, and Waitotara to the south is seeking just such a person.

A Missioner is NOT a parish priest, and not even necessarily Anglican.  The Missioner we are seeking  will be adventurous, incorrigible, unphased by history, energetic and imaginative.  This Missioner will be sensitive enough to know their own strengths and weaknesses, courageous enough to invite others to mitigate any weaknesses, diplomatic enough to please most of the people most of the time, and loving enough to seek newcomers and welcome allcomers.  This Missioner’s mission is to build the church communities across the Hawera, Patea and Waverley areas working collaboratively with existing communities and collegially with their fellow Missioner in the Eltham and Stratford area.

We have a stipend and accommodation and vehicle to offer to the person whose imagination is captured by this opportunity.  If you like what you read so far, please contact us.  We look forward to providing more detail to adventurers and innovators.
