Welcome to Willow Glen Bible Church
Where & WHen do you meet?
Our Sunday morning worship services meet at 8:30 & 10:30am.
In the summer we meet for one service at 10:00am.
Our address is 1292 Minnesota Ave. San Jose, CA 95125.
Where should I park?
Our parking lot is directly behind our building. There are several handicap spots designated there. There will be signs leading you to the main auditorium or to children’s classes.
What Should I expect?
Our services are focused on giving glory and honor to God, acknowledging that He is the sole source of life.
Our music focuses on songs that honor the truth of who God is, what He has done through Jesus His son, and our response to the grace He gives us. Stylistically, we range from hymns to modern popular worship songs, full rock band to solo acoustic guitar. Dave Matsumura is our music pastor.
Our preaching primarily focuses on working through entire books of the bible (expository). The goal is to understand what God has said, apply it to our lives, and allow God to teach us. On occasion we have topical preaching.
Who are the Pastors?
We are an elder-led church which means we do not have a senior/lead pastor. All major decisions are determined by the elder board.
Mark Bucko, Chris Tenny, and Gary Vanderet are the main teaching pastors who serve equally. A few times a year, David Misson, our Youth Pastor will preach and we also have occasional guest preachers who share the pulpit.
Expository Preaching is one of the core values of Willow Glen Bible Church. This means, we preach through a book of the Bible from start to finish, verse by verse.
