We are seeking to appoint an Associate Minister, to be in charge of STC, in the New Territories. The vacancy has been created by the internal transfer of the present minister.

STC is an evangelical church with contemporary and renewal worship.

The successful candidate would take responsibility for the oversight of STC church. STC is one of two daughter churches to St Andrew’s Church, Kowloon, which function largely independently, but with the support of the wider St Andrew’s team.

The ideal candidate will be:

The compensation package includes: generous salary; relocation expenses; furnished accommodation; local travel expenses; children’s education allowance; comprehensive medical insurance; and contribution to a retirement scheme.

Of course, fluency in Mandarin &/or Cantonese would be a distinct advantage, however this is by no means essential.
