Pastor: Local Mission, Children and Youth – Plentylife

About the Role

Pastor: Local Mission, Children and Youth


We are seeking a Pastor/Minister to work closely with the Senior Minister in prayerfully developing the next phase of our life as a church. In early 2024, we will launch our new mission and vision, looking forward to 2029.
The Associate role will be our second pastoral staff position alongside the Senior Minister. The primary focus of the role will be local mission and ministry with young people and their families. There will be flexibility within the role to minister in other areas according to the gifts of the candidate and the needs of the church.
Plentylife is located in a very multi-ethnic part of Melbourne and yet our congregation does not represent our community (majority Anglo). We would welcome a candidate who could teach us how to better reach and represent the ethnic diversity of our community, either through your own life experience or professional experience


We started as a church plant to the expansion suburbs of Mernda and Doreen in 2011. Our mission to share the love of Jesus with these ever-growing communities remains an exciting call for our church today. In 2023, the suburbs of Mernda and Doreen have a combined population of over 50,000 people. It is an exciting time for us as we move from being a new church plant to an established church in a growing and ethnically diverse community. Our Sunday services are held at Mernda Central College (we do not own a church building), the local P-12 public school. We enjoy a very healthy, friendly relationship with the school, which continues to be a great blessing for us.
