Hope Christian Fellowship seeks Youth and Young Adult pastor (San Gabriel, CA)

Posted by sedwardyang on April 13, 2008

DO YOU HAVE A HEART FOR YOUTH AND YOUNG ADULT CELL MINISTRY?
If so, come grow with us!

HOPE Christian Fellowship is an evangelical, multi-cultural, non-denominational church in the city of San Gabriel in Los Angeles County, CA. We are a growing cell-based church with a weekly attendance of about 250 adults and children (about 35 youth). We believe that our cell groups are central to the community life, ongoing discipleship, and evangelistic lifestyle of our members and are believing God to reveal the person He has called to fill the position of Associate Pastor for Youth and Young Adults.

We are seeking a dynamic individual who has a heart-felt calling and strong desire to minister the love of Jesus Christ to both youth (junior and senior high) and young adults (age 18-26). “Empowering Youth” is one of our seven core values and we are in search of someone who longs to shape Christ in the lives of our youth and young adults and to develop/oversee the church’s cell-based ministry to youth and young adults. We are seeking a Christ-centered individual who is passionate about cell groups and evangelism (both local and global), loves young people, has a strong prayer life and solid biblical knowledge, relates well to people, and is a good relationship builder and team player.

This full-time pastoral position with health and vacation benefits is a great opportunity for an individual to get in on the ground floor of a church which, by God’s grace, is positioned for future growth. A seminary degree (or Master’s degree in related field) and at least 3 years of pastoral experience, along with youth and/or young adult cell ministry leadership experience is required. Cross-cultural experience strongly preferred and mid-to-large church experience or church planting is a plus. Salary will be determined based on qualifications and experience.
