Ministry Vacancy

Christchurch Chinese Church – Senior Pastor Role

We are seeking a senior pastor who loves God and His Church, who is passionate about the Gospel and preaching/teaching the Word of God, who cares deeply about the lost and this broken world, who is called to lead us to grow this Church, and who is empowered by the Holy Spirit to serve and lead.

The senior pastor will team with the governing board of the Church (Church Council Board, CCB), and will give leadership and supervision for implementing the vision of the Church.

The senior pastor will oversee the life and direction of the Church. The senior pastor will need to have a firm grasp on the purpose, values and strategy of the Church and the ability to align staff and key leadership teams with its mission.  The senior pastor will embrace and support the Church’s statement of faith.  The senior pastor will offer pastoral leadership to the church staff and other leaders for the whole work of the Church.  This includes proclaiming the Gospel, preaching the Word of God, leading the development of ministries, providing oversight for pastoral care and administrative functions.

We are a multi-cultural church with our roots in the Chinese immigrant community.  We have regular attendance of approximately 600, a staff of 12 (8 full-time, 4 part-time), and 5 congregations (2 Mandarin/English, 1 Cantonese, 2 English).
