Pastor Joe and Pastor Mary Walsh
Pastors Joseph and Mary Walsh both grew up in Northern Minnesota. Mary was raised on a dairy farm and Joseph grew up in an iron mining community. They met at Bible camp in their teen years and discovered they both had a heart to serve God in ministry. Mary attended Northwestern College and later joined Joseph at North Central Bible College in Minneapolis.
Joseph and Mary were married in 1979. They began full-time ministry in St. Paul, Minnesota, where they served at Bethel Christian Fellowship for over 8 years. The Walsh's relocated to Washington in 1991 and have served two other churches before being called to start Northwest Community Church in 2001.
The Walsh's have two married daughters, Trisha and Cheri.
