New Horizon exists to be used by God, through the power of His Spirit to inspire a selfless surrender to His Son, a radical obedience to His Word, an enduring passion for His Kingdom and an unconditional love for His World.
The Board of New Horizon Ministries is seeking one or more Christian people who are excited by this vision to serve as Directors (also known as Trustees) of the charity.
Since 1989, New Horizon has been running a refreshing, challenging and relevant ministry week in Coleraine each summer including Evening Celebrations, morning Bible Teaching, Seminars and youth and children’s programmes. It is one of the largest Christian events in Ireland, involving approximately 5000 people daily over the course of the week. We are intentionally trans-denominational and pan-evangelical, seeking unity in Christ and the core of the gospel, accepting diversity around it and creating space to learn together from Scripture.
New Horizon Ministries is the company limited by guarantee and registered charity that organises the New Horizon event. The Board of Directors has ultimate responsibility for the governance and direction of the organisation. They shape the event’s future direction, maintain and develop its values and vision, choose the mainstage speakers, and ensure good governance of the organisation. We are especially looking for people with experience and knowledge in any of the following areas: law, finance, business management or communications.
This voluntary role entails up to ten Board meetings and other events across the year, normally on weekday evenings, as well as participation in the annual New Horizon week in August.
Directors must confirm personal acceptance of the Lord Jesus Christ as their Saviour and Lord, their belief in New Horizon’s Statement of Faith and their support for the Mission, Values and Vision of New Horizon.
If you are interested in this role, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for an application form. The closing date for applications is 3pm Friday 26th November 2021.
