KAMIAH — Faith Lutheran Church at Kamiah, whose history dates back about 70 years, is seeking a new pastor.

The church has been without a full-time leader since its previous pastor took ill months ago, said Burton Willey, a member of the church. A church committee is searching for a new full-time pastor, but would also accept a temporarily fill-in. It is a paid position, Willey said.

Those interested may call Willey at (208) 935-5691 or his wife, LaVerne Willey, at (208) 935-5052.
