  • Lead a team inspired to develop ministry programmes
  • Create life-changing experiences for others
  • Christian faith organisation in Matamata


Are you ready to lead?

We know there is someone out there with the call to impact youth and lead a team inspired to develop ministry programmes that create life-changing experiences.

This person will value self-awareness and accept every challenge with a growth mindset. This is a new role to Totara Springs Christian Centre (TSCC) needing a successful project manager with creativity and energy to lead the development and execution of our core holiday programmes - Family Camp, Easter Camp, Youth Holiday Camps and Leader Development Camps.

If you have worked in a Christian camping organisation before or have experience in leading faith-based youth programmes and large events, then you will appreciate the challenges and opportunities involved. With a team of experienced Coordinators to lead and support, there is much to do. Your powers of persuasion, delegation and organisation skills will be tested. Even with a clear plan, anything can happen. We will come to rely on your calm and grounded approach to problem-solving and health & safety expertise to troubleshoot whatever comes up.

As a lead organiser for some of our major annual events, you will be a clear communicator providing insightful direction and pastoral care to the team and value the input of others. All forms of communications will be a natural strength of your skillset, whether it be as the ‘face' of the event, preparing programme reports or building relationships with our guests, volunteers, and our wider community.


Our Mission

At Totara Springs Christian Centre (TSCC), we believe in practically demonstrating the love and compassion of Jesus through providing excellence in everything that we do. Our gifted and motivated team has the privilege of creating unforgettable memories for groups of people all year round.

You will contribute to the crafting of the present and future culture of our amazing organisation and sharing God's love. This is an opportunity to lead and inspire the admirable Ministry Development Team at Totara Springs, a place where life-changing experiences happen every day.

Totara Springs Christian Centre has guests of all ages who travel from afar to enjoy our beautiful setting and outstanding hospitality.


Shortlisted candidates will be subjected to background checks required under the Children's Act as part of pre-employment screening. As we are a Christian organisation, you must be considerate and comfortable being and working in this environment.
