Pastor John Whaley and his wife Debbie are semi-retired and live in Rio Vista.  Pastor John has been in ministry 23 years, serving about 19 of those years on staff of the CNH District.  The past 4 plus years he has been active serving congregations as a vacancy or interim pastor, including serving in Atascadero, Milpitas, Livermore and most recently, Vacaville. He enjoys the challenge of interim work because of all the uniquely gifted people he meets and is privileged to come along side to help discover what God’s plan may be for their ministry at this time and place. 

Over the years he has found God’s Word as recorded in John 13:34-35 to be guiding verses for his approach to ministry with God’s people; “A new command I give you: Love one another.  As I have loved you, so you must love one another.  By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” 

We pray that the Lord will richly bless Pastor Whaley’s service among us as we seek His purpose for Town and Country in this time and community.
