Job Description:

Administrative Director / Pastor


Background: Restoration was planted in downtown Yakima, Washington in May of 2013 for two reasons: we love Jesus and He loves Yakima. Yakima is a diverse, agricultural community of nearly 100,000 people that is known for its apples, hops, and wine. Boasting over 300 days of sunshine a year and closely located to the mountains for outdoor recreation, Yakima has much to offer; yet there’s also brokenness and tension in a city that is so ethnically and economically diverse. Restoration's vision is to create welcoming environments where it's ok not to be ok. We intentionally adopt the mindset, "it's not about me," as we worship Jesus together as one body, allowing the Gospel to produce true life change. We are adding an Administrative Director / Pastor to grow with us as we seek the welfare of this beautiful city through restoration of souls, homes, neighborhoods, and our community.
