Description of Organization
Grace One Church (G1C) originally began as a Chinese-centric ministry at Carmel Baptist Church and became an independent church plant, launching in May 2016. While we have a distinct Asian heritage and flavor at Grace One, we desire to be a multi-cultural church family that magnifies God through Gospel-transformed lives, grace-overflowing community, and cross-cultural mission.
We are currently seeking an English Ministry Pastor (ordained) / minister (unordained) who has a call to shepherd the flock, a gifting to preach the Word of God, a heart for the lost, and a passion to activate kingdom work amongst Asian American families, career adults, and youths along with the diverse communities we live in and serve.
