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, 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 and meets at 1:00 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.
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.
