The Early Years
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. On September 8, 1991, Washington International Church (WIC) held its first service at a Georgetown Hotel.
WIC has been a supportive community to people from over 120 countries. Our congregation is known for being warm, welcoming, accepting, and diverse, encompassing a broad range of ethnic backgrounds and age groups. Most of our congregation has lived overseas or has some connection to the international community. Members live throughout Maryland, the District, and Northern Virginia.
Our church is located on River Road, which is within walking distance of the Friendship Heights and Tenleytown-AU Metro Stations. We meet at 10:30 AM for a contemporary service and many stay afterward for a light meal.
WIC has a strong community bond for people of all ages. We offer opportunities for adults, young professionals, children, and teens to make new friends and grow spiritually. We hope to see you this Sunday!
