Korean-American Ministry Resources

College Ministry Pastor

Open Door Community Church strives to be a community of disciple-making disciples of Jesus Christ who know him and make him known to the glory of God.

Discipleship is at the center of our church where the goal is to raise up disciples of Christ in their conviction of the Gospel and Christ-like character so that by God’s grace, they can thereby raise up other disciples.

We are a mid-sized primarily Asian American congregation, though our doors are open to all. Located in Los Angeles, we are also connected to LA Open Door Presbyterian church which is a Korean-speaking church.

Role Summary

College is an extremely important time not only because their worldview is being shaped, but also because the nations are literally coming to us in the form of international students.

The College Pastor will be responsible for leading and overseeing the college ministry of Open Door Community Church. We have a thriving college ministry with students coming primarily from USC and UCLA as well as other surrounding community colleges. This area of ministry will stress discipleship of current students to make disciples on their college campuses. This includes identifying and training student and adult leaders, regular preaching, and developing a culture of discipleship.
