West Vancouver Baptist Church is proud of our long, Christ-centered history and are now looking forward to our next chapter: serving our large, mostly unchurched community with fresh approaches to worship, teaching and other ministries. Our loving, compassionate and deeply committed congregation is seeking a very special pastor to lead us in this endeavor.  You’ll have the requisite preaching and teaching credentials, but these will need to be supplemented with a warm, outgoing and inspiring approach to your work.  An evangelistic flair is a must.  This is a very rare opportunity for an early career stage pastor [and spouse] to make a real impact.   Email: search@westvanbaptist.com
