March 2016 Message by Dr. Ken Kurihara

The Japanese American United Church (JAUC) is a Christian community seeking to reach out, especially to Japanese and those who are interested in Japan in the greater New York City area, with the purpose of sharing faith in Christ and growing together in Christian discipleship through worship, fellowship, study, evangelism and mission.

JAUC is seeking a dynamic full-time pastor who is called by our Lord to lead the church in its mission. The pastor should have a meaningful personal relationship with the Lord Jesus and be able to bear witness of a personal relationship with the Lord. Our pastor must be affiliated with and ordained by a recognized denomination and will have to receive approval to serve by the Reformed Church in America (RCA) and/or United Methodist Church (UMC).

The pastor will be called to establish consistent structure in the Sunday worship with biblically based sermons and transform our Sunday worship to a place where people would want to come and worship the Lord. The pastor should be gifted to help the church share the good news of salvation in Jesus Christ, especially to Japanese, Japanese American, and those who are interested in Japan. The pastor should be able to lead the church’s small group ministry to help the fellowship of the church and to disciple the next generation of believers as followers of Jesus Christ.

We prefer candidates who have working permissions in the US.

JAUC has been meeting regularly in prayer, firmly believing in the grace of God and waiting to receive new vision from God through our new pastor.  The congregation is ready to support the new pastor and we are excited about the great things that God has in store for us.

To apply for this position:

Candidates who are interested in the pastoral position at our church are requested to forward us the following documents and send to the below address, via mail or email by March 15, 2019:
