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.
