Executive Minister of Converge NW

The Pacific Northwest has always been naturally beautiful, culturally diverse, and spiritually needy. 130 years ago, Swedish immigrants started the first Swedish Baptist Church in Seattle. Later they started other churches in Portland, Tacoma, and around the Puget Sound. Today we are still starting and strengthening churches in the northwest, including multiple ethnic and immigrant congregations.
While always gospel-focused, we have enjoyed nine different names for the ministry. In 2008 we became Converge Northwest. As one of the eleven U.S. districts of Converge, we serve over 100 churches in Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana, and Alaska. Over the past 12 years we have enjoyed strong leadership by Dr. Steve Welling. As Steve’s ministry with Converge NW draws to a close, we are actively seeking God’s next leader for us.

The timeframe for this search is to present a candidate to the churches of Converge NW at our Annual Gathering in October of this year, with an anticipated start date for the Executive Minister of January 1, 2020. The exact start date and terms of the call will be determined by the Board of Overseers in consultation with the candidate.

The application for the position of Executive Minister of Converge NW consists of the following items:
1) Cover letter
2) Resume’
3) Answers to the Executive Minister Application Questions (see link).

Items may be emailed to no later than June 15, 2019.
