Okanogan Valley Alliance Church (Okanogan, WA) – Pastor
The Big Picture
Okanogan Valley Alliance Church (ovachurch.com), a smaller, multi-generational church in North Central Washington, seeks a Pastor who is committed to Bible teaching in the expository tradition and has a heart for helping people.
The Okanogan Valley Alliance Church began in 1996 as Central Valley Alliance Church, later changing the name to reflect the location and outreach of the church within the Okanogan Valley. Many residents of the Okanogan Valley are unchurched, “spiritual- but-not-religious,” or a syncretization of Catholicism with American Indian Spiritualism. Poverty is high in the area, with a rate of over 21 percent for the county. Our mission reflects the Christian and Missionary Alliance’s desire to know Jesus Christ; exalt Him as Savior, Sanctifier, Healer, and Coming King; and to complete His Great Commission. In this new era for our church body, we desire to focus on engaging our community through outreach and evangelism, and to build ourselves a strong foundation in the truth of Scripture through Biblical teaching on Sunday mornings and through small group Bible studies.
We desire a pastor who is a skilled Bible teacher, who is wise and discerning, and who cares for his people while providing appropriate leadership. He should relate to people with a servant’s heart, be experienced in equipping people for ministry and leadership, and be a good listener. In addition, the pastor should hold the vision of what the church wants to be before the congregation.
We require a man that meets the qualifications in I Timothy and Titus. “The preferred minimum education is a seminary graduate along with some pastoral experience. We want a strong Biblical expositor and one who is in line with our Statement of Faith. He must be ordained or ordainable with The Christian and Missionary Alliance.”
