In this post, the successful candidate will look to develop a significant ministry amongst unchurched young people using lessons learnt from Sorted and MYCN principles, through evangelism, making disciples and enabling appropriate new forms of church, known as Sorted Seacroft. They will look to form a team with local volunteers and in time with diocesan interns, up to four of whom who will be housed on the Seacroft estate. Together they will work with Bishop Young C of E Academy, Leeds Faith in Schools (who provide chaplaincy in the school) and local churches.
