The Chinese Bible Church of Greater Boston (CBCGB) is seeking a Lead English Ministry (EM) Pastor to replace its current Lead EM Pastor, who is retiring after 15 years of faithful service.
The Church Overview
The Chinese Bible Church of Greater Boston (CBCGB) is a vibrant, evangelical church with a long history of overseas missions and local outreach. Founded over 40 years ago by Chinese immigrants in a house church, it now serves about 1,500 multicultural
worshippers each week across its primary Lexington campus as well as a location in downtown Boston and in a Boston Metro-South church plant.
The English Ministry (EM) is a 250-member congregation at CBCGB’s main Lexington site. The congregation consists of many families, working professionals, and students from various local area universities.
EM is notable for its high rate of service and giving across its members, a congregation that seeks substantive and accurate Bible teaching, comprehensive musical worship teams, and for sending a large number of its own members into missions and
full-time Christian ministry.
This is a unique opportunity to lead a congregation at a pivotal moment in its long history: evolving beyond being just an English-speaking congregation within a Chinese Church into a multicultural ministry with a distinct brand and identity of
its own, but with the full backing of its parent church.
To guide this transformation, the Lead EM Pastor will drive both existing and new ministries and be the primary communicator with the congregation as the principal speaker from the pulpit. Additionally, the Lead EM Pastor will establish the culture
and practices under which EM can become effective in welcoming and caring for a diverse set of people, across different cultures, and with growing family lifecycles.
A successful candidate for this role must possess dynamic preaching skills, able pastoral care, and strong leadership so as to guide EM through its evolution and establish new areas of growth and ministry. Furthermore, this candidate must be able
to collaborate well both with the lay leadership within EM and the broader CBCGB church leadership to execute effectively. Finally, this candidate must be able to understand the EM congregation’s needs and establish an effective ministry to meet them.
