Permanent Minister Position

Minister/Pastor For Central Auckland Church

The Auckland Chinese Presbyterian Church (ACPC) is an evangelical Presbyterian church located in central Auckland, comprising two congregations; one Cantonese-speaking and one English-speaking. We are seeking a full-time Minister to lead our English-speaking congregation.

We are a young, vibrant Presbyterian church in the inner city. Auckland is experiencing significant demographic growth and diversity, but we are one of the few Presbyterian churches here.

ACPC believes that our location and the multi-ethnic, multi-generational nature of our English-speaking congregation is a great opportunity to be part of God’s mission sharing the Gospel in this city.

This represents an exciting opportunity for someone who feels called to be part of this vision; a person who will lead us in reaching out to the city for Christ and helping it flourish. This is not a call to “business-as-usual” ministry! This person would naturally have an affinity for working with Chinese people, but would not need to be Chinese or speak any Chinese language.

We are seeking a Minister who:

  • Affirms the orthodox Christian faith, and can communicate the Gospel in a modern secular context with intellectual heft.
  • Is comfortable providing pastoral care to the diverse cultures and age-groups in our English congregation and beyond.
  • Has a strong sense of mission and service to the local community.
  • Is able to help, develop and deploy the spiritual gifts of our church members.

Our English congregation has about 60 regular attendees with a range of ethnicities (NZ-born Chinese, foreign-born Chinese, other Asians, Europeans, and others) with ages ranging from children to grandparents.

The English minister will work alongside and report to our senior minister, Reverend Micah Tang, who is responsible for the Cantonese congregation.

Please email your interest to msb-contact@acpc.org.nz. A copy of our detailed church profile is available on request via that address. Our church Web site is http://acpc.org.nz.
