Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ:

We are seeking your prayers and assistance in helping us to call an Associate Pastor for our Cantonese ministry.

We are an evangelical church in downtown Washington, DC, seeking to proclaim and serve Jesus Christ. Our congregation is multi-generational, multiracial, interdenominational and international, offering a unique opportunity to experience and spread the love of God. We have four services and are currently sharing one of two English services with the Mount Vernon Place United Methodist Church.

Situated in the heart of the nation's capital and committed to urban ministry, the door of ministry is wide open and the harvest plentiful. We would appreciate your assistance in helping us to call an Associate Pastor who could help equip our church to do God's will, locally as well as globally.

Please nominate or pass this information along to someone whom you think could answer such a call. Enclosed is a fact sheet listing the basic characteristics we seek.
