Pardubice is the capital city of the Pardubice Region and lies on the river Elbe, 96 km east of Prague (1h away by train) in the heart of the Czech Republic. It has 100 000 people.
The city is well known for its sport events (Great Pardubice Steeplechase, Golden Helmet of Pardubice, Czech Open), ginger bread, rail and air transport.
Oaks Community Church has about 25 people that consists of families with children and youth, couples and singles. We meet on Sunday afternoons for our weekly meetings.
Come and be part of a church plant in Pardubice where most people here have never heard the Good News properly. When we talk to people they normally say: "We could believe if someone would tell us about who Jesus is and what was the point of him dying on the cross." So if you have heart for the lost of all ages, this is the place for you.
We are small, home based church plant and need a lot of help in worship, kids and youth work and help in the local Christian school.
We are looking for someone to come and help us to:
Expand our kids work for the kids in our church plant and their friends, meeting both midweek and Sundays.
Encourage our young single people in our church
Improve our English conversation in after school club and language classes in Noah Christian School (ages 6-15) and work in a team with the language teachers where we teach English, French and German
Play piano or drums in worship
If needed we can contribute towards the cost of training, flights and living costs.
Please get in touch with Michelle Foster at firstname.lastname@example.org if you're interested and would like to find out more.
MORE ABOUT ID:
Why be an ID intern?
ID is a year-long church internship program designed to help you walk with Jesus into the adventures that he has for you. Over the course of the year you'll be immersed in the life and mission of a local church, where you can serve in a wide variety of exciting ministries and be lovingly discipled. We also expose you to exciting missional opportunities with Relational Mission churches in the UK and Europe.
We want to intentionally disciple you. To help you grow in knowledge and passion for God, to learn you are you, and how you can live and speak for Jesus in every area of life.
Why host or send an ID intern?
Our hope is that ID not only blesses the individual interns but also the churches that host and send them. Having an ‘IDer’ in your church who is well invested in and given opportunities to serve and step out demonstrates a commitment to investing in individuals.
Likewise, sending folks on ID shows that as a church you are committed to Christ’s commission and value the apostolic as much as the local.
So, who could you send onto the course? Could your church offer someone a placement?
Who is it for?
Anyone aged 18+ who is able to take a year out and who wants to grow in their faith.
ID can be a wonderful opportunity for college/school leavers to get a solid foundation of theology and character before heading to the work place or off to university. Likewise for those finishing university considering what to do next. We have also had a good number of men and women in their twenties and thirties take career breaks in order to do the course. We haven't yet had anyone in retirement come onto the course, but we’re open to that!
I'm in! How do I apply?
The application process can be found on the ID webpage. Applicants complete an online form which comes through to the ID team who then contact the sending church to discuss the applicant and the placement options available.
Or you can contact Matt Fell directly to ask any questions and to find out more.
