Yarrow Alliance Church (YAC) seeks a lead pastor who has a calling to lead our church community to achieve its God-given mission and vision. We seek a lead pastor who will embrace this church and the community of Yarrow and be prepared to settle in for the long term.

Yarrow Alliance was founded in 1958 and currently serves not only the town of Yarrow, BC, but also the surrounding areas of Sardis, Chilliwack, and Abbotsford. There are currently 511 people in the church directory and 103 of those listed are official members. The congregation has identified the size and condition of our facility as our biggest need and have raised over $400,000 towards a future building project. The spirit of volunteerism is alive at Yarrow Alliance, with 78% of the congregation actively serving in at least one ministry. We are a young church, with 68% of our congregation under the age of 40.

We seek a sincere, relational, and transparent leader who will share his/her life with us and join us in embracing people, wherever they are at in their journey.

Our next Lead Pastor must be a competent biblical preacher and a developer of leaders who will collaborate with the Board of Elders and congregation in the development and achievement of vision; someone who will discover and share our conviction that God has a future and a purpose for our church in our community.

We seek a leader who is able to inspire and motivate people in deed and word. The church seeks a leader who leads with a collaborative leadership style – a person who enjoys working with people and equipping them for ministry and community service.

We seek a pastoral leader who will embrace the journey ahead of us with passion, deep faith, with a commitment to and resonance with the mission, vision and core values of YAC.
