The Search team has received plenty of information from the congregation. Now we would like to share a bit of why our applicants are attracted to Saltwater:
From California to Connecticut the beauty and access to nature in the Pacific Northwest is known. Many a minister hope to come enjoy the conifers, mountains, and breathtaking views of the area. The landscape is not the only reason that Saltwater is attractive. The social and political openness and civility are another big draw as well. Finally, we are known for our commitment to social justice. We were described by two applicants as “small but mighty” and “not stagnant”. Saltwater is also known for being a very warm community.
