The Early Years
On September 8, 1991, Washington International Church (WIC) held its first service at the Georgetown Hotel and rented several spaces before moving to its current location. Pastor David Wong and his wife, Nancy, had just finished their five-year church planting ministry in Gaithersburg, MD, when they were called to start a church in Washington, DC.
Since 1991, WIC has had people from more than 120 countries gather to worship. Our current congregation makes up about 18 countries and range from university students, diplomats, and to those local to this area. Our church is located on River Road, which is conveniently located by the Friendship Heights and Tenleytown Metro. We meet at 10:30am and after service, many stay for a light meal.
Our church has a strong community bond for people of all ages. Whether you’re a parent with kids or a young adult, we’ll be able to easily help you get plugged in. We hope to see you this Sunday!
