English Minister (Pearland Campus)

Website HCCHome Houston Chinese Church

Houston Chinese Church (HCC) is a multi-cultural, multi-lingual, non-denominational evangelical church that has been ministering the gospel of Jesus Christ in Houston, TX since 1975. HCC has a rich history of church planting and a commitment to biblical teaching and a missional heart for the lost.

In 2011, a congregation of first-generation Chinese worshippers formed an extension campus in a fast-growing city south of Houston called Pearland. In 2020, we completed construction of a building for the Pearland campus. Currently, we conduct two worship services (Mandarin & English).

At this time, Houston Chinese Church is looking for a full-time English Minister for its Pearland Campus. Serving in an immigrant church, this individual should have a clear calling to minister to the second-generation, many of whom are the youth of Chinese-side families. Until the Pearland campus is launched independently as Pearland Chinese Church, this individual will serve under the supervision of HCC’s Lead English pastor and on the English Staff Team.

Education: Master of Divinity or higher from an accredited seminary (or currently pursuing an M.Div. degree)
Experience: 2+ years experience in pastoral ministry in North America (volunteer or staff)
Language: Fluency in English required; knowledge of Mandarin language a plus
Relationship: Reports to the Lead English Pastor, expected to work closely with a Pearland Chinese Minister/Pastor
