Shaping world changers:
Vacancy for Head of Mission Studies at Redcliffe College
Something special is happening at Redcliffe College… We have a new Principal, a new strategic vision and a motivated and experienced team. Now we are recruiting for a new Head of Mission Studies. If you want to join this dynamic, forward thinking, professional College, and have the skills and experience to match, we want to hear from you.
Redcliffe has spent over 100 years training women and men from all over the world to communicate the good news of Jesus Christ effectively across cultural differences in church, mission and development ministries around the world. But we are far from old fashioned! Our courses are innovative and wholistic and our college community exceeds 30 nationalities each year and prepares people of all ages.
We are looking for a new Head of Mission Studies to lead the Mission Studies department and contribute to the development of missiological thinking beyond Redcliffe. The teaching is at undergraduate and postgraduate level across a range of specialist courses.
The role requires a mission scholar who can combine effective communication skills in both lecture hall and conference venue with the ability to mentor students in a wholistic learning process. Ideally with a PhD but certainly with a strong academic background and a commitment to ongoing learning, you need to have had firsthand experience of cross-cultural mission and ministry.

Closing date for applications: 17:00 GMT on Monday 14 June 2010.
