WCC Leadership Update

From Chris Yarco, Lead Executive

Dear WCC Family,

As we continue to conduct the search for the right person to serve in leadership for our Willamette Campus, I want to thank you for your faithful prayers and peaceful patience. Be assured, there is no slowdown to the ministry and to the discipleship that is happening at our church each day.

Throughout this process, we’ve invited our campus and central staff to offer feedback and insight in order to gain alignment and agreement around the character, education, experience, competency, and care for the community that we believe our next leader should have. Their voice is essential and we are well served by this team of leaders at WCC. (Don’t forget to visit their bios and learn more about them!)

Campus Staff
We have a professional, Godly staff that supports the mission and ministry of the building up of servant leaders. Our campus staff facilitate the day-to-day ministry you experience and participate in throughout the week. From local discipleship to family care to local outreach, these are the faces of those you’ll interact with regularly as we lock arms to inspire people to know, love, and follow Jesus.

Lead Pastor Roles

We believe strongly in team and collaboration. The new lead pastor of WCC will join a team of loving followers of Jesus who serve in many different roles. Once hired, WCC’s new lead pastor will become a member of the Executive Team. Together, with our elders and other executive team members, they’ll help frame the vision and mission, ensure sound teaching and doctrine, and lead and serve the people, ministries, and programs of the WCC campus as well as all our other church campuses.

Keep praying for who God has planned for us… and keep leaning into ministry. When you’re here on Sundays, you’re part of a healthy community. When you participate and serve during the week, you are helping make a healthy community. We need you and we love you.

"Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.

If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him. But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed by the wind." - James 1:2-6
