You will be a discerning listener and gifted communicator, who models good team working and is able to evaluate and reflect spiritually about the life of the church in its various settings. You will have a passion for social justice and advocacy for communities facing challenges and demonstrate a strong commitment to building relationships ecumenically and with other faith groups.
