West Side Church is just one more church established by the amazing God of the universe. Therefore, our mission and vision is the same as it is for any of God’s churches. The way we say that at West Side goes like this:
“To reach our world for Christ, by building mature disciples, for the glory of God.”
That is our mission. And we believe that is the mission of the Church. We want to see the gospel get to the ends of the earth through disciples of Jesus, not just “church goers.” And we want to do this so that we, and the world, would worship our great God. But what does that look like? What is the vision we are heading towards?
“A community of people who desperately want to worship the Lord, love each other, and share the gospel with our world.”
That is our vision. That is who we want to be. We make that happen primarily at Sunday Morning Worship services, and in weekday Life Groups. However, we hope to be that loving, worshipful, and gospel-sharing community no matter where God has us. To God be the glory.
The Big Picture – West Side Church is looking for a Pastor of Discipleship who will oversee and infuse discipleship into the church ministries at West Side. These ministries include our Family Team (Birth-H.S.), Life Groups, and Internal Church Ministries (volunteer led ministries). While oversight of these areas 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 Church – West Side Church was planted by Conservative Baptist 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 nine 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 Pastor of Discipleship Ministries to serve on our Pastoral Leadership Team. The candidate should have a passion for discipleship, a holistic approach to family ministry, a commitment to small group ministries, and the desire to work with a team of leaders for a common goal. Above all, we seek someone who deeply loves God and lives for His glory.
The Process – Submit application to email@example.com. This should include your application, cover letter, resume, and responses to all application questions.
