Vancouver Chinese Alliance Church
English Congregation Pastor – Fulltime Position
Vancouver Chinese Alliance Church is the first Chinese Alliance church in Western
Canada and has been blessed by God in many areas of ministry for over 55 years. Our
church is a vibrant, trilingual and multi-generational family that includes English,
Cantonese, and Mandarin congregations striving towards being “Unified in Christ for the
Mission of God.” Sunday worship attendance amounts to about 700 people altogether.
The current pastoral team for all congregations consists of six full-time staff.
Currently, we are looking for an energetic and inspiring person who has an intimate
relationship with Christ and a heart to lead our English ministry.
Areas of Responsibilities:
The primary role of this position is to shepherd and provide spiritual leadership to our
English congregation, consisting of seniors, families, adults, youth and teens. The
pastor must integrate his ministry vision and emphasis into the church’s existing
programs, which include weekly activities such as worship, member fellowships, small
group programs, prayer ministry, marriage counselling, discipleship training, Sunday
school, teens worship, visitation and community outreach. The pastor is also
encouraged to develop new programs.
The position also requires the pastor to recruit, equip, and lead a network of servant-leaders, and provide supervision and coaching to other pastoral staff serving in the
English ministry. The pastor will also be required to cultivate effective communication
with the members from other congregations and partner with all pastors to ensure that
our members’ spiritual needs are met.
In accordance with Canadian employment standards, preference will be given to
candidates who are either Canadian citizens or landed immigrants. In addition to this, a
criminal record check is required.
The ideal candidate should possess a bachelor or higher degree from an accredited
seminary school and meet the Canadian Alliance accreditation requirements. A Master
of Divinity degree is preferred. The candidate should also demonstrate strong
administrative and leadership skills, and possess a passion for God and His people in

experience from serving in a multicultural Chinese-English church will be an asset.
