TSCF is seeking to appoint a National Director to further the work of the gospel on campuses around New Zealand. We invite applications from Christian leaders who feel called to serve students, lead a team of around 30 staff who support student-led groups, and partner with churches and other Christian organisations.

The National Director will have the vision to build on the movement’s growth and provide strategic direction as we move forward. This is a vital ministry that takes the gospel to the students of New Zealand and beyond. It has seen significant growth over the past 10 years under the leadership of Nigel Pollock.

The new National Director will have the ability to carry this growth forward and the vision to develop a greater connection with Māori and Pacifika students. We believe this is an exciting prospect and provides an opportunity for genuine Christian leadership.

Preferably, applicants should have completed theological training, be skilled teachers, proven disciple-makers, and able to winsomely apply Scripture to life and culture.

The role also involves being the public face of TSCF. There is an emphasis on raising funds for TSCF and for the role of National Director, both through established channels and through exploring new ones. Prior experience of fundraising is desirable.

TSCF has been equipping students to know and share the gospel since 1936. It is a founding member of the International Fellowship of Evangelical Students (IFES), and has close partnerships with several of the IFES student-led ministries worldwide.

Our vision is to help thousands of students become servant leaders of character through the transforming gospel of Christ. Read more about what we believe online.

The position is ideally based at the TSCF Wellington office with a starting date in September 2018. Applications close 5pm 4 July 2018.

There is a critical need for staff in Auckland and Palmerston North to walk alongside students. This could be in a full-time capacity, with financial support from churches, graduates and other partners, in a part-time supported role, or fully voluntary.

Contact us if you would like to meet up with TSCF staff in your region, find out what student ministry looks like on a day-to-day basis, and learn more about the needs on campus.

Do you have a heart for discipling students? We have roles from a few hours a week to full time, working on every campus where young adults are studying and the gospel needs sharing.

Most TSCF staff are funded by supporters. However some staff work voluntarily and others are funded by partners such as Raleigh Street Christian Centre. That church in Cambridge employs Nick Goodwin as TSCF staff in Waikato as part of its own commitment to sharing the gospel in its community, as well as employing Nick to serve their congregation. Another staff worker is seconded from OMF, and several others have roles in both their church communities and on campus.
