Korean-American Ministry Resources

The Korean Church of Columbus (“KCC”) is seeking a Lead Pastor for its English Ministry (“KCCEM”).  KCCEM and KCC are a non-denominational church that is an Evangelical, Bible based community. KCCEM is a medium sized congregation of about 60 to 80 individuals and growing, which includes families with young children, young working professionals, and college students (majority from Ohio State University and Columbus State).  The majority of members are of Asian descent, but people of different cultures and backgrounds are welcomed and desired. KCCEM has a modern service format (e.g., modern worship music) and meets at 9:00 and 10:30 on Sundays in a dedicated place of worship and at various times during the week for Bible studies, cell groups, prayer meetings, and other functions.  The English Ministry is a subset of the larger Korean Church (approximately 450-500 people including children), which includes two Sunday Services (conducted in Korean), Youth Group (English), and Sunday School (English).

This position is a full-time position dedicated to KCCEM, but additional assistance for Youth Group and other areas may be needed from time-to-time.   This Lead Pastor position will report to the KCC Senior Pastor.  Competitive salary and benefits package provided.

KCCEM is looking for an individual who has a passion and gift for preaching, teaching, and evangelism, but also actively seeks to connect with individual congregants for fellowship and counseling.  A flexible, generous, and joyful personality will mix well with KCCEM’s present congregation. There are established Cell Group leaders who serve and lead their Cell Groups, but this Lead Pastor role is an omnibus role that requires strong spiritual leadership and administrative know-how.
