Pastor John Vaswig, Transition Pastor

Pastor John has been our Transition Pastor since April 2021, and oversaw the merger with Shepherd of the Hills in Issaquah. He has three children Josh, Zach (Bryn), Nicole (Darryl) and three grandchildren. After thirty-five years as a parish pastor, mostly in the Senior Pastor role, he decided in the Spring of 2020 to resign from MT. View Lutheran where he had served for twenty-one years as Senior Pastor. While he loved the life of a parish pastor, he found himself needing a necessary break from ministry so he took a year off. He came to realize all over again his love for the parish and indicated to synodical folks that he was open to an Interim or Transitional Pastor position.  He looks forward to a time of continued rigorous reflection as we probe the mysteries together and discover what God is calling us into.
