West Side Baptist Church – Yakima, WA – Pastor of Discipleship Ministries 


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 wholistic 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.
