Vancouver Chinese Alliance Church is inviting applications for the position of Senior Pastor. Distinguished as, and humbled to be considered, the first Chinese Alliance church in Western Canada, we have been blessed by God in many areas of ministry for the past 50 years. Our church is a trilingual and multi-generational family that includes a large, maturing Cantonese-speaking congregation, a smaller English-speaking congregation, and a small, but growing, Mandarin-speaking congregation. The church has a wide spectrum of ministries, ranging from children’s programs to senior fellowships. Sunday worship attendance amounts to about 700 people altogether, while the current pastoral team consists of seven pastors.
The ideal candidate will possess a master’s degree or above from an accredited seminary school and meet the Canadian Christian and Missionary Alliance accreditation requirements. The candidate should have a track record of ministry experience from serving in a multicultural Chinese-English church, demonstrate a high level of excellence and integrity, and possess a passion for God and His people in the setting of a multicultural Chinese-English church community.
In accordance with Canadian employment standards, preference will be given to candidates who are either Canadian citizens or landed immigrants.
Prospective pastors should contact the Chair of the Pastoral Search Team directly for church and application information. After prayerful review of the application materials, please submit your ministry resume and a cover letter to the Chair.
The application deadline is June 30, 2016.
