Howrah Church of Christ | Senior Ministry Opportunity

Tuesday, 12 July 2022


Howrah is a long-established but growing suburb (also surrounds) of Hobart, Tasmania, on the Eastern Shore of the Derwent River.  

The Church is part of those known as Churches of Christ in Australia and is affiliated with Churches of Christ in Victoria and Tasmania (CCVT).

The Church was established following the partial destruction of the Tasman Bridge in 1975 (remaining part of the Hobart Church of Christ until 1986).  The church has good facilities.  Part of the land is currently being subdivided to provide funding for future building development.  

Current Ministry

Prior to joining Howrah CofC, Jim Garlick had been the Senior Minister of a local independent Pentecostal Church.  Jim believed he was called to the Howrah Church of Christ, even though past “retirement” age.  He has been the Senior Minister since January 2019 and now needs to relinquish the position due to family reasons.  He still believes the church has tremendous potential for the future to really impact the local community with the right leadership. 

God has been re-building the church.  A significant number of people, including some younger people, have joined us.  Average attendance has increased from 33 to 48 per week. 

Ministry Opportunity

The Church is seeking a person or couple as Senior Minister full-time to lead the Church in its mission and ministry.  The appointee needs to be eligible for accreditation with CCVT.

He/they will have a strong desire to establish in time ministries to all ages including youth and children, outreaching to young families in and beyond our locality, have a strong pastoral heart for people, good preaching ability, and be led by the Holy Spirit.

The position will require someone with a deep knowledge of being called by God, a vision and desire to lead a local church, but perhaps has not yet had the opportunity.
