Leadership Team

Servant Leaders of Village Church

Servant Leadership

A primary focus of our pastors is to equip and empower others to serve as Jesus did. At Village Church, we have dedicated staff including pastors and volunteer leaders of groups, teams and ministries.

Mike RJ Miller - Lead Pastor

Be kind to each other, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, just as God through Christ has forgiven you. -Ephesians 4:32

After 17 years in the tech industry, Mike and his family dove into a life dedicated to planting and revitalizing churches. Since 2007, the Miller family has been involved in starting and strengthening churches in the Pacific Northwest. Mike is most proud of his marriage to Heather and how they have raised three amazing people to serve the Lord with their lives. Mike is a lifelong learner of the Bible and leadership principles and finds joyful purpose in equipping and empowering those whom he serves. He’s a fan of CS Lewis, the Seahawks, craft coffee, and good hamburgers.
