Recruiting Missional Community Developers

If you subscribe to the Episcopal Diocese of Texas' Diolog e-news, you may have noticed an announcement of something we've been working on over the last few months.

Here's the announcement from yesterday:
Texas Episcopal Service Corps is excited to announce that the Diocese of Texas will be creating two Missional Community Developer positions for two Houston area organizations. Missional communities are sacramental and relational outposts for those who cannot, or will not, go to an established church. These corps members, as developers, will provide coordination for weekly worship and conduct neighborhood awareness, service and engagement activities. The addition of these roles are constructive to Bishop Doyle's vision of creating communities for people to gather and be present with one another in supportive faith. Texas ESC adds these exciting placements to its roster of 2017-2018 service opportunities for young adults, all of which can be found at texas-esc.org.
We're serious about developing young leaders through missional communities. This is an effort to show that. Applications for the coming year are now being accepted. Please apply and share with young adults you know. We will fill two posts this year, but I could be easily convinced we need more. If you're a leader of a congregation in the city of Houston that is interested in working with a developer, get in touch.
