Vancouver Welcomes New Pastor

The Vancouver (Wash.) Community Church welcomed their new senior pastor and his family on Sunday, March 8. Church members gathered for a pancake brunch with pancakes cooked to perfection by Gene Heinrich and Jeff Richards, associate pastors. Members donated food items to "Fill the Pastor's Pantry"—a tradition in the Vancouver Church.

Roger Walter, pastor, and his wife Gail have six children: Seth, Krista, Kylie, Summer, Kinsee and Sydney. They moved to Vancouver from Colorado, but they are not strangers to the Oregon/Washington area. Prior to his ministry in Colorado, Walter spent eight years pastoring in Oregon.

Church members expressed their feelings of gratitude over the arrival of the Walters, thus ending a search for a senior pastor spanning nearly two years.
