Pastor/Minister

Website Calvary Baptist Church of New Haven

The Calvary Baptist Church of New Haven (CBCNH) is a predominantly Chinese/Asian-American congregation, affiliated with the American Baptist Churches USA. We are made up of Chinese and English ministries, and altogether, we are a loving and vibrant community of worship, where our greatest priority is to know Christ and to make him known. Located in the heart of New Haven and next to Yale, many of our members are connected to the university or live in the neighboring towns.

We are seeking a full-time pastor to oversee and shepherd our church, particularly the English ministry. The pastor will work with pastoral staff, as well as other lay-leaders, to promote a life of intergenerational worship and communal flourishing; train robust and committed disciples; cultivate leaders by recognizing their gifts and talents; and incorporate them into the life of our church by way of service, worship, and fellowship. In light of our context, as noted above, the pastor should have some familiarity with, as well as a sensitivity for, the minority/immigrant experience. An ideal candidate will be one who truly has the passion to cultivate and grow our church and will thrive at the opportunity to help shape our ministry in New Haven, both independently and in collaboration with members and other churches.
