Japanese Presbyterian Church (Presby, as we are commonly known) is seeking a Senior Pastor for our multi-generational, multi-cultural church near downtown Seattle.

Our vision is to be a Christ-Centered church that proclaims God’s love for the world so others will know the life found in Jesus Christ.

Founded 115 years ago to reach out to Japanese speaking immigrants, our congregation is now predominantly English speaking while continuing to have a Japanese speaking ministry. Our Asian heritage is a prominent feature of our identity even as we welcome becoming a more culturally and ethnically diverse church. We share God’s love and empathy for those in need, for the children and the elderly, caring for each person with intention. People find opportunities to serve with generosity and humility in lay leadership, worship, teaching, music, and congregational care. We are a diverse community of faith that desires to be united in Christ as we have genuine interactions over differing cultural and theological perspectives.
