Minister/Pastor For Central Auckland Church

The Auckland Chinese Presbyterian Church (ACPC) is an evangelical Presbyterian church located in central Auckland, comprising two congregations; one Cantonese-speaking and one English-speaking. We are seeking a full-time Minister to lead our English-speaking congregation.

We are a young, vibrant Presbyterian church in the inner city. Auckland is experiencing significant demographic growth and diversity, but we are one of the few Presbyterian churches here.

ACPC believes that our location and the multi-ethnic, multi-generational nature of our English-speaking congregation is a great opportunity to be part of God’s mission sharing the Gospel in this city.

This represents an exciting opportunity for someone who feels called to be part of this vision; a person who will lead us in reaching out to the city for Christ and helping it flourish. This is not a call to “business-as-usual” ministry! This person would naturally have an affinity for working with Chinese people, but would not need to be Chinese or speak any Chinese language.

We are seeking a Minister who:

  • Affirms the orthodox Christian faith, and can communicate the Gospel in a modern secular context with intellectual heft.
  • Is comfortable providing pastoral care to the diverse cultures and age-groups in our English congregation and beyond.
  • Has a strong sense of mission and service to the local community.
  • Is able to help, develop and deploy the spiritual gifts of our church members.

Our English congregation has about 60 regular attendees with a range of ethnicities (NZ-born Chinese, foreign-born Chinese, other Asians, Europeans, and others) with ages ranging from children to grandparents.

The English minister will work alongside and report to our senior minister, Reverend Micah Tang, who is responsible for the Cantonese congregation.

Please email your interest to msb-contact@acpc.org.nz. A copy of our detailed church profile is available on request via that address. Our church Web site is http://acpc.org.nz.

Alice Springs, located right in the heart of Australia, has a diverse, multicultural
population of around 28,000 people. The town is a hub for tourism, government
services, healthcare, defence and agriculture services. A significant population of
aboriginal people live in and around the town, and there is a growing international
population.

The Presbyterian Inland Mission (PIM) planted a small church in ‘the Alice’ about
four years ago. With the upcoming retirement of the current minister, PIM are looking
for a church planter to inject some fresh energy into the church and, under God,
develop it into a viable and sustainable congregation that can make a significant
impact in the local community.
The rugged beauty of Central Australia masks some deep spiritual and social
challenges both in the towns and the more isolated areas; problems that can only be
dealt with through the Gospel. There is a wide range of churches in Alice Springs, but
an opportunity does exist for a reformed evangelical church with solid biblical
teaching to make a contribution, and to actively engage in evangelism and discipling
ministries.

PIM are looking for a pastor who can:
• Provide a solid expository Bible preaching and teaching ministry.
• Help people grow as faithful followers of Jesus.
• Develop elders and other local leaders and create a sustainable structure within
the Presbyterian Church of Australia.
• Train congregation members to develop outreach and evangelistic strategies to
take the gospel to their community, including amongst local aboriginal people.
• Equip the congregation to grow into a vibrant and sustainable church of
disciples who are actively engaged in local mission.

The Alice Springs Presbyterian Church currently has about 20 to 30 regular attendees
and meets in a church building owned by the Australian Indigenous Ministries.
Ideally, the new pastor would be available to start early in 2018.
Living and ministering in Alice Springs is not without challenges, but it also provides
some unique opportunities for a couple or a family to enjoy a different lifestyle. Those
who enjoy outdoor recreation will find plenty opportunities to get out and enjoy the
many things the Centre has to offer. The town is well serviced with shops, health care,
education, internet connectivity and daily flights to the east coast
To explore this opportunity further please call Andrew Letcher, CEO of the
Presbyterian Inland Mission, on 0438 868 964 or email ceo@pim.org.au
