He kor?ria ki te Atua i runga rawa, 

He maunga-?-rongo ki runga i te mata o te whenua,

He whakaaro pai ki ng? t?ngata katoa.

Glory to God on high, peace on earth, goodwill to all peoples.

T?n? koutou katoa e te wh?nau a te Karaiti, e te H?hi Mihingare.

Greetings to the family of Christ, to members of the Anglican Church.

The College of St John the Evangelist/Te Whare W?nanga o Hoani Tapu te Kaikauwhau i te Rongopai, continues to deliver residential theological education, formation and ministry development for the Anglican Church in Aotearoa, New Zealand and Polynesia 175 years after it was founded in 1844. Its commitment to the Three Tikanga Church under the 1992 Constitution/Te Pouhere respects the M?ori, P?keh? and Pasefika cultural strands embraced by the Treaty of Waitangi/Te Tiriti o Waitangi with the aim of providing a unified and cohesive missional culture in which to work, live and minister.

The retirement of the current Manukura at the end of 2019 offers a spiritually and academically rewarding opportunity for a gifted leader to guide the College to serve the mission and ministry of the Church now and into the future.

The position is a multifaceted one that encompasses spiritual, academic, cultural, organisational management and people leadership skills in equal measure. Key responsibilities will include:

  • Providing the strategic and operational leadership of the College that will deliver the strategic plan approved by the Board of Governors/Te Kaunihera
  • Promoting a unique Three Tikanga environment that celebrates cultural differences while encouraging and supporting the development of a unified community of practice that shares a common sense of purpose and promotes the Anglican faith
  • Working with a talented team of pastoral Deans and other academic staff to develop and deliver curricula and pedagogies which will meet the current and future needs of the Three Tikanga Church in a bi-cultural environment
  • Communicating effectively with key internal and external stakeholders as the primary spokesperson to continue to lift the profile of the College, working collaboratively to build strong and effective relationships and networks both within the Province and internationally
  • Leading the pastoral and spiritual care of all members of the College community which includes staff, students and their families
  • Consistently upholding and role-modelling the values of the College.

The successful candidate will be an ordained Anglican priest holding a postgraduate qualification in Theology or an aligned discipline. A strong personal faith and a demonstrated passion for academic excellence will be essential to role model spiritual and academic leadership which are critical success factors for this calling.

We are looking for an exceptional, visionary and authentic leader who genuinely embraces diversity and is culturally sensitive. A working knowledge of basic conversational and liturgical Te Reo is expected, with a serious commitment to develop fluency in the language if not already mastered. An understanding of Three Tikanga cultural practices will also be important. The ability to inspire and guide everyone in the College community, combined with the humility to fully embrace a collegial, servant leadership approach, will be key.

Ideally you will have served in a parish and be conversant with the complexities and challenges facing the Church. Experience as an educator at tertiary level is also a preference for this highly rewarding leadership role.
