New Jersey

Why I Love This Opportunity

Zarephath Christian Church is positioned to not only influence their county for Jesus but also impact the entire state of New Jersey and beyond. Their partnership with a regional radio station, access to hundreds of acres of land, experience in serving their community, and strong pastoral team make them an ideal destination for the right candidate.

About This Organization

Zarephath Christian Church (ZCC) is back and stronger than ever. New families arrive each week, and the church continues to see people saying “YES” to Jesus. There is a buzz about what God is doing as ZCC continues to love, live, and serve like Jesus.

Founded in 1989 as an independent Christian church, ZCC had the opportunity to grow creatively and quickly through its access to seven hundred acres and free radio time through the Pillar Ministries radio station Star 99.1.

The church is a true reflection of the multicultural diversity of the surrounding community, with over 60 countries represented in the congregation. An annual “Culture Fest” is a visible display of what God is doing in drawing the nations to the church.
