We are a tri-congregational evangelical church seeking a Senior Pastor with honesty and integrity, who genuinely cares for the church, upholds the importance of understanding the Bible, and desires to share their passion in Christ. Our church is looking for a leader who is called by the Holy Spirit to care for the church and to oversee all the ministries with a pastoral team and other church leaders.
Overview of Church and Community
Established 1975, Montreal Chinese Baptist Church (MCBC) is in Downtown Montreal, just North of the Chinatown and east of McGill University, we have been a hub for students attending universities nearby. In the early 90’s, MCBC had a church-planting vision. It materialized in 1997 when the Montreal City West Baptist Church was planted in Ville Saint- Laurent.
Currently, MCBC has an estimated 200 members within 3 different language specific congregations (English, Mandarin and Cantonese). Members of the congregations are predominately Chinese immigrants and their descendants. All 3 congregations share a unified leadership board, but each has its own committee overseeing its Sunday school, worship ministry, evangelism, fellowship and caring ministry. Similarly, each congregation has its own worship service and Sunday school. The children ministry is jointly organized by all 3 congregations.
Our mission is to first ensure we follow Jesus, so we can be a vehicle to help other people in Montreal (and beyond) to know Jesus, and then to become his followers.
