Pastor (Kent, a suburb of Seattle,WA)

 

Grace Fellowship of Kent, WA is seeking the man called to serve as its pastor

Grace Fellowship Church of Kent, Washington is seeking the man called by God to become its next pastor.  We look forward to hearing from him.

The pastor position is a full-time position (the only paid employee of the church) and is the only pastoral position.  The previous pastor retired and relocated.  A retired pastor is serving part-time in the pulpit.  Sunday school classes and the ministries for women, men and children are led by lay church members.  Four men comprise the church elder board.  Church member volunteers also perform most typical administrative and worship service duties (e.g., worship music, ushers/stewards, accounting and secretarial, custodial and maintenance).

The church facility is a well-maintained two-story property owned by the church, in a fully developed residential neighborhood (across the street from a public elementary school) in the city of Kent (population 120,000), a suburb of Seattle.  The church neighborhood is very diverse in race and ethnic origin and has a mix of single-family homes and apartments.

Our ministry serves a blended community of people speaking English and/or Mandarin.  Some church activities and small groups involve everyone while others focus on a particular language group.  Church worship services are conducted in English with a live audio translation available in Mandarin; attendance averages about 60.  We seek a man who will grow this church by encouraging and retaining the current church body while inviting others to join with them from Kent and nearby communities.

The church is without debt and has operated with a balanced budget for more than ten years.  We expect future giving will need to grow with attendance, but existing church financial resources will provide a buffer while that occurs.
