West Side Church – Yakima, WA – Family Pastor

The Big Picture
West Side Church is looking for a Family Pastor who will provide oversight of our entire Family Team. The Family Team includes the Children’s Ministry Director (Birth through 5th Grade), the Youth Director (grades 6 – 12), and all teachers/volunteers who serve throughout both entities. While oversight of this team is expected, what we are seeking is someone who will disciple these leaders and teach them to disciple within the context of their own ministries. The Family Pastor will lead the way in discipling new people into the role of teachers and volunteers and coordinate the training and discipling of parents so they can disciple their children (Please see complete job description).

The Church
West Side Church was planted by Conservative Baptist Northwest (Now Church Venture Northwest) in Yakima, Washington in 1953. Since then, the church has strived to faithfully fulfill the great commission and to teach the full counsel of God’s Word. Between 2002 and 2013, God used West Side to plant three churches. In 2019, the leadership of the church changed from a Senior Pastor to a Pastoral Leadership Team (presently this consists of three positions). These three pastors, along with fourteen lay elders, are elected by the body to lead and shepherd the church. Our mission is to reach our world for Christ by building mature disciples, all for the glory of God. We strive to do this through large group and small group gatherings, our personal devotions and pursuit of Christ, and in local and global mission work. The age of attendees spans all ages from birth through people in their 90’s. There is a growing number of young families; the Boomer generation is well represented; with a faithful senior age population.

The Candidate
We are prayerfully seeking a Family Pastor who will serve under our Pastoral Leadership Team and directly report to the Discipleship Pastor. The candidate should have a passion for the family and discipleship. He must have a wholistic approach to family ministry, and the desire to work with a team of leaders for a common goal. Above all, we seek someone who deeply loves the Lord and lives for His glory!
