North Orange Christian Church
|Church Description *|
|North Orange Christian Church was founded in 1973. NOCC is a non-denominational congregation, not aligned with a denomination or group of churches, but willing to partner with any churches who follow Jesus. Our mission is to facilitate a passionate, personal relationship with Jesus Christ, leading to lifelong discipleship. We target a multi-cultural community and young families. We hold as core values the Lordship of Jesus, Love, Integrity, Excellence, the Authority of Scripture and Faithful to God’s Purposes.
In the past decade, NOCC has intentionally shifted its focus from a “fill the seats” approach to truly making disciples. This decision has brought a number of positive changes including an emphasis on serving the poor, an increased level of diversity (ethnic, socio-economic, general functioning, etc.), and a focus on evaluating individual spiritual health on a regular basis.
We currently average approximately 300 on a Sunday morning, though we have over 500 regularly participating in worship and small groups, and 200-300 more involved in our Storehouse ministry each week.
NOCC is in the heart of Southern California and within easy driving distance of Disneyland, Knotts Berry Farm and the beach.
This Church is a multi-cultural and multi-ethnic congregation that is seeking to reach young familes. NOCC has four strategic values that guide the church…
NOCC is an elder led church.
We follow the scriptural pattern of local churches led by a plurality of spiritually qualified elders. Pastoral staff—including the Senior Minister—are not part of this Biblical model, but are positions used by the elders to provide trained, experienced and effective ministry. The staff are responsible to the Senior Minister, who in turn is responsible to the elders as a group. The Senior Minister is considered an ex-officio elder.
|Position Description *|
|Full-time Staff Position: Co-Minister, North Orange Christian Church, Orange, CA.
Purpose of Position: North Orange Christian Church is seeking a mature, experienced minister to join a strong staff as Co-Minister. The man in this position will share “Senior Minister” duties with the current Senior Minister as the church moves to a Co-Ministry approach to leadership.
North Orange Christian Church exists to facilitate a passionate, personal relationship with Jesus Christ, leading to lifelong discipleship. We recognize that many churches emphasize the beginning of this process (evangelism) or the remainder of the process (building maturity). The current Senior Minister is a gifted teacher, counselor and mentor. While devoted to evangelism, his passion and gifts are oriented to building mature believers. The Co-Minister must be equally devoted to NOCC’s mission statement, while having a passion and gifts which are oriented to evangelism.
• This co- Minster will report to the board of elders.
