Assistant Pastor


Wantage Baptist Church (OX12 9AQ)

Date posted: 5th June 2024
Application ends: 30th September 2024

We are looking for an Assistant Pastor to join our growing church, located 15 miles south of Oxford. You will support a wide range of ministries, and help us support the spiritual health and direction of the church.


The successful appointee will gain further ministry experience within our church family, whilst taking on oversight of an area of church life (for example Life Groups, outreach, schools engagement). If gifted, you will preach approximately once a month and support additional teaching opportunities run throughout the year. You will support the pastoral care of church members, in a variety of contexts (including small groups and 1:1). We would also expect to see the development of new ministries, in line with your particular gifting and passion.

Required skills

Ideally, you will have undertaken some ministry training, such as Crosslands, Oak Hill, or a trainee ministry role in your local church. However, we would expect the appointee to grow in the role.


We are looking for someone committed fully to the Lord, with a heart for drawing alongside people to help them grow in their faith. You will balance strength of character with humility, demonstrating the grace of God in all circumstances.
