Job Description

We are a Chinese church seeking a lead pastor/minister for our English congregation, with a demonstrated passion and vision to shepherd and lead our existing young adults and youth in growing into lifelong disciples of Christ, and reaching those in their spheres of influence and beyond with the Gospel. We seek to unleash the potential the Lord has given to us to develop our English speaking Asian American ministry, with a missional focus to the greater community, with special emphasis on the Generation Z demographic (young adults to youth).

The reasons for the special emphasis on Young Adults and youth are three-fold.
First, our English-speaking congregation (~50 people total) consists of youths, their parents, and young adults.
Second, our church is within walking distance to top ranking middle and high schools in the state of GA, so there are many Chinese families with youths in our community. Vibrant youth program will enhance the English ministry and attract the parents of youths to the Chinese congregation.
Third, given the macro trends, we believe that the English congregation will be more important in the future, and these youths/young adults today will be the foundation of Chinese/Asian American Churches of the future.
Our desire is to see God glorified through our English-speaking congregation. A key role for the English Pastor/Minister is to nurture the Christian faith of the entire congregation to become lifelong followers of Jesus Christ, equipping them to evangelize and disciple within their schools, workplace, neighborhoods, as well as sending them out to reach the nations.

Our church, the Atlanta Chinese Christian Church Northwest (ACCCNW), is a conservative non-denominational church. As mentioned above, we are located near top-rated elementary and secondary public schools. Although we are in a suburban neighborhood, we are also a short commute to one private university (Life University) and to the two campuses of a public university (Kennesaw State University). We are a small to mid-sized church (with ~250 total attendees on average) when including children, youth, and adults from both the English and Chinese congregations.
