Lead English Pastor: Sunset Church (San Francisco, CA)

Posted by sedwardyang on June 10, 2009

This is a key position on the Sunset pastoral staff.  The pastoral staff works with the church leadership to plan, direct, oversee and guide the local Body of believers to maturity in their walk with God.  The pastoral staff works as a ‘team’ to administer church affairs and effectively equip the church body to fulfill the day-to-day ministry through activities such as small groups, Sunday School classes, outreach, missions, etc.).

This is a senior staff position that requires effective teaching skill, ability to guide & motivate key lay leaders to shoulder key ministry areas within the English congregation.  We believe the most effective way to oversee ministry is to develop mature believers who can exercise their God-given ministry abilities within the church.  Special emphasis is given to two ministry areas:

1. Development, refinement, and fulfillment of unified church vision, mission, and values (in conjunction with pastoral staff and elders), and
2. Lay leadership development, especially for the elder and deacon level.

First Presbyterian Church, Altadena, CA seeks pastor [position filled]

Posted by sedwardyang on July 15, 2008

First Presbyterian Church of Altadena, California, (PCUSA) is looking for a new pastor. This historically Japanese American Church has become increasingly diverse ethnically and is in a neighborhood and urban environment (Altadena – Pasadena) that is also culturally and economically diverse. The next decade will be a challenging and energizing time of revisioning and engaging what God wants us to be and do in this environment. We have 100+ on Sunday mornings, composed of 55 percent Japanese Americans, 25 percent Caucasian, and 30 percent a mix of other Asian Americans, Latino, Native American, and African American.

We are shaped not only by our ethnic cultures and the Reformed heritage, but also by the more recent missional church discussions and significant new engagement in worship. Our pastor will provide leadership by helping shape leadership teams and the congregation as a whole to be faithful to God’s call on our life as a church and on us as families and individuals. Unique attention is needed in leadership development, corporate worship and preaching, discernment (helping us re-imagine corporate and personal outreach), pastoral care / spiritual direction, and overall leadership in the midst of changes in our lives and our context. For more information, contact Mark Lau Branson at this link.

Louisville Institute Offers Sabbatical Grant Program for Pastoral Leaders

Posted by sedwardyang on August 16, 2007

Through the Sabbatical Grant for Pastoral Leaders, the Louisville Institute offers pastoral leaders a chance to step out and step back from the pace and pressures of ministry through its Sabbatical Grant for Pastoral Leaders program. The program is designed to provide clergy with the opportunity for personal renewal, study, and reflection. The Louisville Institute will award up to forty grants for eight-week ($10,000) and twelve-week ($15,000) sabbaticals. Recipients must be released from all pastoral duties during the entire grant period. Recipients are free to use the grant award at their discretion. Previous grantees have used their awards for the purchase of books, research material and equipment, conference and seminary expenses, salary replacement, travel, etc. There are no residency or travel requirements or expectations, except for attendance at the preparation consultation in Louisville February 18-20, 2008. All expenses for that consultation are covered by the institute, over and above the grant award. Recipients of a 2007 Sabbatical Grant for Pastoral Leaders shall take this sabbatical between March 1, 2008 and August 31, 2009. The program is open to Christian clergy, church staff members, denominational staff, and others employed in recognized positions of pastoral leadership, ordained and lay. Seminary administrators and faculty members are not eligible for this grant program. In past years, most successful applicants have at least five years of pastoral experience, and anticipate five or more years of active ministry after the sabbatical. The program is open to pastoral leaders in the United States and Canada. Visit the Louisville Institute Web site for complete program and application information.
