Crosswalk : Full-time Pastor Job Description

We are currently seeking a full-time pastor for Crosswalk.

Introduction

Crosswalk is the English-speaking congregation of IN2 Onnuri Community Church (“IN2”) in Manhattan, located opposite of New York Penn Station. On any given Sunday, there are more than 1,000 people that come together for worship across all congregations (Korean-speaking adults, young adults, college students and Crosswalk).

In a city with diverse people, culture and worldly success, IN2 was planted in the heart of Manhattan as a vision church of South Korea’s Onnuri Church to reach the lost. Founded in 2005, the name and meaning of IN2 was derived from two Bible verses, Matthew 11:28 and Matthew 28:18-20, standing for “Come IN2 Jesus, Go IN2 the world”.

Background and Values

IN2 carries on the original Onnuri vision of Acts 29: To be a church moved by the gospel and to write Acts 29 actively through our lives in faithful continuation of Acts 28.  We believe in a biblical and Christ-centered community with three existential values:

1)   Worship - to offer living and dynamic worship to God

2)   Holy Spirit - to bear fruit through being filled with the Holy Spirit

3)   Missions - to effectively spread the gospel, obedient to the Great Commission

Our core practices stemming from our Onnuri roots include daily quiet time, one to one discipleship, small group community and outreach/missions.

Crosswalk currently comprises of mostly Asian-Americans, including families with children, older and young professionals, and college and graduate students coming from across the tri-state area. With over 100 Crosswalk members today, we are looking to accelerate growth of this congregation within IN2 while fulfilling our Acts 29 vision for New York City, the nation and abroad.
