Our church staff are the first place many people experience what it means to be part of Washington Farm’s unique family. From Pastor Christina’s smile and enthusiasm on Sunday, Nancy cheerful willingness to help in anyway possible when you call or visit the church office, to the smiling faces of Sam and Drew Barnes at any of our education opportunities, to music that speaks deeply to our soul, not to mention Berta’s warm arms in the nursery and the always ready kitchen kept by Mary, our staff is already ready to invite you into whatever they are doing.
We are growing as a family in faith and service because of the leadership our staff provides.
