Open Heaven is a strong and growing church. Our vision is ‘making disciples who establish heaven on earth’. We have three expressions; OH1, OH2 and OH3. We are known for our effective discipleship culture, the development and release of younger leaders, and working in unity and partnership with others across the body of Christ. We are also a Resource Church for Pioneer Midlands, which means we serve and strengthen the dozen or so churches connected to us.
Digital Engagement Lead

engage with many who are first connecting with us in the digital space. You will create and implement effective strategies to help a digital fringe become disciples of Jesus, by connecting them into community, both online community and in person community.
