Maclean Evangelical Church (MEC) is an evangelical church in far northern NSW.

MEC is a new church attended by 30 people and associated with FIEC (Fellowship of Independent Evangelical Churches).

We are seeking a man to pastor and further establish our church through Bible teaching, pastoral care and encouraging evangelism.

MEC is able to pay a ½ wage and therefore does not expect a pastor to necessarily work full time.

A potential pastor would need to agree with our Doctrinal Statement https://macleanevangelicalchurch.wordpress.com/about/

For initial inquiries please phone Andrew Groves on 0466 972 128 or email andrew@macleanevagelicalchurch.com

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.

Brisbane Cantonese Christian Church (BCCC) is seeking a passionate full-time Pastor for its active and committed English speaking congregation.

BCCC is a non-denominational church that largely ministers to the Chinese community in the northern suburbs of Brisbane.  The church consists of both a Chinese Ministry and an English Ministry.   The English Ministry is predominantly made up of Australian born (or Australian raised) Chinese young adults, workers and young families seeking to live out their faith in their various stages of life.

We are a congregation that treasures Jesus and each other.  We are also a congregation that values God’s word and wants to deepen our love and commitment to His word.  We therefore seek a Pastor who is excited about teaching and modelling God’s word to us, and is keen to walk with us as we walk with Christ.

We are also a congregation that has been growing in our passion for missions, evangelism and outreach.  Recently, we have been sensing God leading us to particularly connect with and reach young local families with the gospel.  (A playgroup was commenced 2 years ago as part of this emerging vision).  We therefore also seek a Pastor who can encourage and equip us to partner with God in this vision.

Key responsibilities:

  • Weekly systematic and expository preaching/teaching of God’s Word
  • Pastoral oversight of current ministries (children, youth, young workers & families)
  • Providing personal discipleship and leading/encouraging members of the congregation to disciple others
  • Provision of pastoral care to members and families of the church
  • Identification, encouragement, and training of members to serve and lead in appropriate roles
  • General coordination, planning, and management across all aspects of the English ministry, including strategic planning
  • Working with the English Ministry deacons to further develop the English Ministry
  • Working with the combined deacons board (English/Chinese) to coordinate, plan, and manage the life of the BCCC community
  • Engagement with the wider community to foster relationships with other churches, and with the Kedron State School chaplain

The English Ministry Pastor works with and is responsible to the English deacons, and the combined deacons board.

 

 

Essential criteria:

  • Deep personal relationship with Christ and reliance on His Spirit for wisdom and strength
  • A passion for the Word of God and teaching and preaching
  • A commitment to growing lifelong disciples of Christ
  • Sensitivity to different cultural backgrounds of church members and the community around us
  • Bachelor of Theology or equivalent
  • Minimum of 3-4 years of pastoral experience is strongly preferred
  • Must hold a Working with Children (blue) Card
  • Fluent in the English language (ability to understand/speak Cantonese or Mandarin would be advantageous)

 

Application Process:

 

The position commences early 2018

 

For more information or to apply for this position, please contact:

May Tsui (Pastoral Search & Review Committee)

Ph: 0412 998 236

Email: maybo27@hotmail.com

 

Your application should consist of a Cover Letter, CV (with at least 2 referees) and an audio sermon.
