About the Church

Located in the suburbs of Seattle, New Life Fellowship attracts many who move from out of state to the expanding city. Due to the tech industries such as Amazon and Microsoft, Seattle has become a hub for people all around our nation. Our mission is to expand God’s kingdom by making disciples of Christ that make disciples. We embody this through three values: worship, mission, and community groups. Our vision is to plant campuses in the heart of Seattle and to surrounding cities that need the love of Christ.


We’re looking for someone who has a huge heart for College Students, that is willing to be creative towards reaching students that normally wouldn’t attend church. The College Pastor’s primary responsibility is to be the spiritual leader and principal teacher for our college ministry, named “Conxion” (pronounced Connection). The role of a college pastor has two parts. First, he or she will seek to implement New Life’s culture and vision in being missional towards reaching students that normally would not attend church. Second, the pastor is responsible for the discipleship of students so they will grow to become active and vibrant members of a local church.


Gospel-Centered: The Gospel is the a-z of faith. Not the abcs.
Simplicity: We believe in doing a few things well rather than doing many things poorly.
Devotion over Duty: We desire pastors who do ministry out of a love for Jesus versus because it’s simply a job.
Missional: We are not a country club. Our passion is to reach the lost. We believe that we feed the insiders by focusing on the outsider.
Prayer: A church that does not pray is a dying church.
Passion: We desire pastors who have a passion for ministry and a desire to grow in their ministerial skills.
Interdependence: We are unapologetically connected and supportive of our Korean parent church.
