Korean-American Ministry Resources

Los Feliz United Methodist Church is a missional, Gospel-centered, and passionate church in Los Angeles, CA centered on Jesus Christ and discipleship. We are in search of a full-time EM (English Ministry)/JCC (Jesus Christ Community) pastor who will shepherd our English-speaking congregation (70% Korean and 30% Filipino) and mentor our volunteer leaders/Youth directors/JCC CORE leadership team. LFUMC EM is a body with a servant spirit with 80% of the congregation partaking in leading and teaching. We are not a separate church from our KM (Korean Ministry); we are a family church of ~300 people with multiple generations (i.e. grandson to grandma), planning a healthy transition with the Senior Pastor.

Los Feliz’s history spans over 100 years and has been in the Los Feliz region of Los Angeles for well over 60 years. Our core visions are: (1) to become disciples of Jesus Christ (DTS – Discipleship Training School) (2) transform Hollywood into HolyWood (HolyWood fellowship and praise night) (3) to obey the Great Commission and make disciples of all nations (Vision 50 – LFUMC-grown missions organization with 3,000 pastors & 15,000 members at 2,000 churches in 17 different countries). If you feel called to serve alongside the church as we transform LFUMC, Hollywood, Los Angeles, and the world for the Lord, please continue to read and apply!
