Jesse Slusher

Jesse Slusher and his wife Lynn experience God's grace in Quincy, Washington, where they are in their 20th year of serving and pastoring Faith Community Church. They have four children, two still at home, and three grandchildren. Jesse once took a spiritual gifts assessment and scored highest in "missionary," so he considers himself a missionary to his community and pastor to the people he serves at Faith.

Besides preaching, counseling, and other general duties of a pastor, he works with the church youth. They are developing a youth intern program to get the youth more involved in the life flow of opportunities and leadership within our local church and in the mission field.  We run a Celebrate Recovery program weekly and  have a strong emphasis on small groups.

Faith Community is not part of a denomination, though Jesse is a member of Ministers Fellowship International, which provides accountability, covering, and relationship. The church is evangelical/charismatic/reformed in its flavor, ministry and doctrine. They have strong relationships with other Bible believing churches and pastors in the city, and cooperate in united prayer and worship regularly.

Jesse's other interests, passions and joys include his grandchildren, hiking, writing, gardening, and art.

Of His Good Pleasure Jess Slusher   Something was wrong…very wrong.   He looked over his message again, the one he had been preparing for a couple weeks.  Since the first of the year his congregation had been reading the One Year Chronological Bible and he had weekly preached on a passage or theme from that…

The Current

December 20, 2011
The Current A Short Story by Jess Slusher     It ate at him –that sense of emptiness.  Funny, that a void could have such power.  It followed him, lurking behind any pleasant moment and mocking boldly when the fog and grey of a bleak afternoon loomed oppressive.  It was a persistent heaviness, this emptiness.   It…
At this first hour of the day the deep vermilion sky  spreads it’s plume beneath the fading night. The meadowlarks sing Prime  Liturgia horarum!  and call all life to pray. The robins had preceded them with Lauds, at 3am  calls and trills, high psalmic renderings, “Non nobis domine Sed nominee tuo, tuo da gloriam!” Still, …
On this his final day the last of earthly breath by shattering blow was driven from his heaving chest and our God was given treasure, spoil, plunder snatched from hell’s gate - a soul, a thief, a reprobate who, with a last, clear, conscious act, appealed for mercy, this first fruit of Christ’s cross, “Jesus, remember…
 This Palm Sunday I think of Christ’s triumphal entry into Jerusalem.   "Say to the Daughter of Zion, 'See, your king comes to you, gentle and riding on a donkey, on a colt, the foal of a donkey.'" Matthew 21:5 - from Zechariah 9:9  I think of the spontaneous outpouring of praise to Jesus, the absolute…
“As the Father has sent Me, I am sending you.” (John 20:21)  Each in our own life, in our own sphere are sent by God to do the Father’s work.  Each of us has a work to do.  Each of us has a work to finish.  And, like Jesus, we are to live in the…
 John 5, the account of Jesus healing the crippled man at Bethesda, wont let go of me.  It is such a vivid picture of my own condition.  Like the crippled man, I am prone to wait for a “certain time.”  It shines a light on my dependency on methods.   Can you imagine what would occur in…
So many people waiting - waiting for hope, waiting for healing, waiting for life, waiting for an opportunity to make a difference, waiting to obey, waiting, waiting, waiting.  In John 5 is the story of a man who had been crippled for 38 years.  He was waiting.  He was waiting for the water of the…

A Thin Place

December 29, 2010
A Thin Place A Christmas Story by Jess Slusher The December snow crunched brittle under his old rubber boots in the darkening afternoon.  He was pleasantly surprised they still fit but that’s as much emotional warmth as he felt towards them.  They had been a Christmas present one lean year.  Under the tree that Christmas…
Luke 2:13-14 13 Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying, 14 "Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace to men on whom his favor rests." Last night I went with our youth group to another church to participate in their Advent service.  This…
