The Missionary Church had sought qualified candidates for the Regional Director position of the Western Region.   After many months of interviews and search team meetings the new interim Regional Director has been selected...

The Director’s purpose is to give leadership to the churches, pastors, ministries, and conferences of the Western Region.  The Director’s responsibilities are recruiting, resourcing, coaching and developing Mission District Directors, movement leaders and other catalytic leaders, and accomplishing the vision and mission of the Western Region.

Dr. Dave Devries will be the Interim Regional Director for the next year and officially begins August 1st.  Dave is a seasoned church planter, pastor, coach and strategist.  He started Lake Hills Church, Castaic in 1990 and pastored there for sixteen years.  He has served as the Director of Church Multiplication for the MCWR since 1998.  In this role, he expanded our vision for church multiplication throughout the region, implemented systems for recruiting, assessing, funding, coaching and launching new churches, and targeted new areas to start churches.

As a missionary with One Challenge since 2006, Dave has partnered together with hundreds of pastors, churches and denominations to advance disciplemaking movements. Through training, coaching, creative resources and strategic thinking, God has used him to help leaders focus on multiplying disciples who make disciples who make disciples.  Dave’s vision and leadership birthed Missional Challenge in 2014, which has grown into a team of highly skilled coaches who empower multipliers to accomplish the extraordinary.

Dave and his wife Deanne live in Bellevue, Washington with their golden retriever Olive. They enjoy gardening, travel, reading, coffee and hanging out with their two adult children.
