Island Church of Whidbey is a Christ-centered, multi-generational congregation that has been serving the city of Langley and community of South Whidbey in Washington state for 80+ years. We are seeking a new Senior Pastor to lead our congregation. Our previous Senior Pastor recently returned to his families’ place of origin for family considerations. As a church we recently updated our Mission, Vision, and Values statements with the help of an Interim Senior Pastor provided by Vital Church Ministry, and we are seeking to live out our mission to “worship God and guide people into a life-changing relationship with Jesus Christ”. Our vision is, “We aspire to be a Christ-centered, Spirit-led, disciple-making fellowship that is called to thoughtfully engage, unconditionally love, and humbly serve the diverse community on South Whidbey and in the world”. We are seeking a Senior Pastor who will help lead the church to the future we believe God has called us to.
