Strathcona Vineyard Church is a small, vibrant, multi-ethnic, mixed socio-economic congregation in the heart of Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside. Our congregation is committed to being a welcoming and healing presence in a neighbourhood that is considered Canada’s poorest urban postcode.
Our children often come from diverse backgrounds and our passion is to disciple them into a lifelong journey of loving and following Jesus. We also desire to find ways to engage our neighbourhood and reach more families for Jesus.
This is such a fabulous opportunity to work in an inner-city setting alongside seasoned practitioners. We are looking for someone who would love the opportunity to learn, grow and gain experience in our context or someone who already has prior experience and is passionate about kids.
