Job Description

This is an exciting time to be joining the Board of BMS World Mission. As a trustee, you will be joining at a time of transformation. The phenomenal growth of the Church in the Majority World is arguably the most significant development in Christianity in the 21st century. While the Church in the West has struggled, in Africa, Asia and Latin America it thrives. This reality has presented unprecedented opportunities for the spread of the gospel, as mission becomes from everywhere to everywhere.  

We are currently looking for 4 trustees:

  • 3 trustees, including 1 trustee with fundraising skills and experience 
  • A safeguarding trustee 

We are particularly interested in trustees coming from the Majority World as we want to increase the diversity of our board so that it becomes more representative. Please note that this is a voluntary position. 

As a BMS trustee, you will

  • Be committed to BMS’ vision and mission 
  • Be able to think creatively and strategically and exercise good, independent judgement
  • Be able to communicate effectively 
  • Be willing to participate actively in discussion, including sharing different perspectives 
  • Be able to work collaboratively
  • Be open to learn and develop in your role as trustee 

BMS World Mission was founded in 1792 and we are proud of how we have adapted to the challenges facing each generation. BMS has grown as a global community of mission personnel, partners and international workers in more than 30 countries across Africa, Asia, South America and Europe, supported by more than 1,500 churches around the UK. Together, we’re inspired by our heart to bring the gospel where it’s not known, to bring practical hope to a troubled world and to bring help for the journeys of the displaced.

The successful applicant will be a committed Christian. The nature of this voluntary position means that this is a specific occupational requirement.
