BICKLETON EVANGELICAL COMMUNITY CHURCH (BECC), BICKLETON, WA - is praying for a full-time Pastor for their 70-member congregation and they are excited to see who the Lord will send them. Their church is the only church in this small, rural agriculturally-based community and has thrived for over 100 years due to the prayers, love for God’s Word and servant hearts of God’s people in Bickleton.

The town is a thriving community on a high plateau and experiences four very distinct and beautiful seasons of the year, along with opportunities for fishing, hunting and other outdoor pursuits. They are actually called the “Bluebird Capitol” of the world due to the beautiful mountain bluebirds who arrive for spring and summer nesting. Their K–12 school population is around 100 students and the school maintains an excellent and rigorous academic curriculum. Nearly all graduates pursue higher education and do very well in their chosen careers. Though they are a remote and very small community, Bickleton offers a variety of activities and one can be very involved in the local museum, fraternal organizations, the pioneer association and the school parent group among other groups.

It is important that their pastor enjoy fellowshipping with those who are part of the church body as well as those in the community who do not attend worship, and be willing to visit and encourage all, especially those who are ill, bereaved or shut-in. BECC maintains a strong youth group, Sunday school, Vacation Bible School and has a vital women’s organization. They encourage small groups and Bible studies and welcome all to participate. BECC’s mission is to win others to faith in Christ and to nurture the faith of those who know Him as Savior. They need a shepherd to come alongside them and walk with them in that mission, always encouraging faithfulness and leadership within the church body as they seek to live out their faith and reach out to others. It is their prayer that their pastor will love God’s Word in its entirety, believe it to be divinely inspired, love their Sunday worship service making it a high priority saturated with prayer, music and the preaching of the Word. Their pastor must be constantly seeking to grow in the faith and consider it vital to encourage others to find an ever-deepening faith in Jesus Christ.

See more about BECC at www.bickletonpres.embarqspace.com. If you are being called to this position, e-mail your PIF and cover letter to the Pastor Search Committee Chairman, Tom Whitmore, at or by mail to Tom Whitmore, PO Box 166, Bickleton, WA 99322.
