Our Mission & Vision

The mission of Dungeness Valley Lutheran Church is to reach out and share the good news of Christ's healing love in all aspects of our lives.  To fulfill this mission we will: worship and glorify God, grow in personal understanding of Jesus Christ, share the good news of our Lord with all people, and care for and serve each other and all of god's people. 

Leadership Team:

Our leadership team recognizes the authority of God, and realizes that we are shepherds who serve under the Chief Shepherd, Jesus Christ. We desire to devote ourselves to prayer and to the ministry of the Word. Our passion and goal is to equip the believers for the work of the ministry until we all attain maturity in the fullness of Christ.
