First Christian Church Iowa Falls Hires Senior Pastor

FCC Iowa Falls Worship

What does Ring the Bell mean? At Vanderbloemen, we want to celebrate as a team every time we have the honor of helping a church, school, or organization find their perfect candidate to fill a gap in their team and further their ministry. To do that, we have a bell on the wall in our Vanderbloemen office, within hearing distance of the entire team. Every time a candidate is placed, the team members who worked on that search ring the bell so that our team can celebrate!

Ring the bell! First Christian Church Iowa Falls found their new Senior Pastor.

First Christian Church of Iowa Falls is a community of real people sharing real lives, serving the beautiful Greenbelt area of Central Iowa. The mission of First Christian Church is to become lifelong followers of Christ by connecting with God through Jesus and connecting with each other through love. 

The church offers multiple ministries and outreach opportunities that help build up the kingdom and spread the truth around Iowa. When meeting with First Christian Church of Iowa Falls, we discovered their need for a Senior Pastor that would communicate God’s Word, minister to spiritual needs, and provide biblical leadership for the church. We found Wilson Treftz to be the perfect fit for this role. 

Wilson has been serving as a Chaplain for the United States Air Force since 2014. Through his experiences, he has implemented groundbreaking outreach programs, led various support groups, engaged in pastoral counseling, and supervised ministerial staff. Wilson’s passion for service and love of Christ will serve First Christian Church in ways that we are excited to watch unfold. 

"It was a privilege to walk with FCC Iowa Falls and Pastor TJ developing a succession plan early last year and then extra exciting to come alongside them to help them find Wilson Treftz to serve as their next Senior Pastor. TJ and Wilson will overlap in ministry for a while and then Wilson will take the helm. It's a beautiful picture of what God can do when pastors are willing to plan ahead and transition a church through a succession in a healthy manner."  - Brian Dunks, Executive Search Consultant

Wilson and his wife Lauren are excited to move from Vermont to Iowa. The Treftz’ are eager to plug in and help carry out the vision of First Christian Church Iowa Falls, and we know that Wilson will bring great leadership to the church.
