Assistant Pastor  (Full-time/part-time positions available)

Gospel City Church is an eight-year-old English-speaking church plant in Seoul, Korea. We also have a growing Korean-speaking ministry that was started two years ago. Currently, we have an active congregation of around 150 people. We aim to be a healthy church that is all about Jesus and people. These values have been evident throughout the years as we have seen people come to Christ, de-churched people come back to church, and apathetic Christians grow.

Gospel City exists to transform people, cultures, cities, and nations through the gospel by raising disciples of Christ in authentic community and by planting healthy churches for the glory of God. We have seen many Koreans come to our church because of our Christ-centered preaching and gospel-shaped culture. In the following years, our vision is to reach more Koreans by planting healthy Korean-speaking churches.

We are looking for an assistant pastor to join us in serving our English-speaking community. The assistant pastor will support the lead pastor in championing the vision and mission of GCC. The ideal candidate is passionate about gospel-centered ministry and has a heart for the nation of Korea.
