Debt assistance program helps new seminary grad who said yes to the big call of a small Seattle church. 

General Assembly Mission Council article featuring Mountain View's Tasha Hicks.   

Tasha Hicks assumed when she finished seminary in 2011 that she’d go on to be part of a large, multistaff church, which many graduates aspire to do. She found herself instead as the part-time solo pastor of Mount View Presbyterian Church, a 50-member church in White Center, an unincorporated area of Seattle.

When she first saw the job, Hicks admits there were many things that attracted her to it but also one big thing that made her hesitate.

“My passion has always been to be in a diverse setting and group, working with folks that are on the margins of society,” Hicks says. “Actually, when I saw this position, everything about it was exciting to me, but I saw ‘solo, part-time’ and I said no way. I just didn’t think that was my strength, to be a solo pastor preaching pretty much every week.”

Two of Hicks’s mentors who had worked with her for the last five years also saw the job description and encouraged her to apply for it.
