Dear Coworkers in Christ:
Greetings. We would appreciate your making it known to prospective candidates or nominating them for the full-time position of Associate Pastor/Minister for the English congregation immediately available at Salt Lake City Chinese Christian Church, as announced in our enclosed advertisement. Information about our Church and Salt Lake City are as follows:
Salt Lake City Chinese Christian Church is a nondenominational church. The Church exalts Jesus Christ; it was founded to worship the triune, one and only true God. The Church places emphases on spreading the Gospel, edifying the disciples, amplifying on Biblical teaching, and focusing on the pure, true faith. Our goals are to carry out the Great Commission (Matthew 28:19-20) and to abide by the Great Commandments (Matthew 22:37-40) as well as the New Command (John 13:34-35).
Our Church was founded in 1987. Presently the Church has 300 members, adults and children, including 70 members who speak primarily English, and is growing. One of our ministry focuses is spreading the Gospel to the 6 universities within 3 hours of drive including Idaho State University, Utah State University, Weber State University, Utah Valley University, Brigham Young University, and the University of Utah in the city. There are a large number of Chinese students, whom the Church ministers to through local Bible study or fellowship groups. The English congregation itself is comprised mainly of second or later generation Chinese, students and families, and is welcoming to all ethnic/cultural backgrounds.
Our Church is located in the beautiful Salt Lake City that attractively sits in the valley beneath the Wasatch Mountains. The city hosts vibrant business and industry activities. Prompted by recent, rapid growth in the technology arena, Salt Lake City has become one of the key cities attracting high-technology ventures, resulting also in an increase of Chinese residents. Various reports in the media have cited Salt Lake City among the very best cities to live. Outdoor activities abound in Utah year round. Popular summer activities include mountaineering, fishing, camping, outing in the National Parks. Salt Lake City features a superb environment for skiing, and was the host city of the 2002 Winter Olympics. Additional information about Salt Lake City can be found: http://www.utah.com.
Thanks in advance for your coworking in Christ in advancing the Gospel.
