I am from Toronto, and love hockey, running, hiking and good music. My wife Lauren is from Tacoma and loves the rain, coffee, long walks, and conversation with good friends. Our daughter Annie is from Philly, and loves books, babies (especially her baby brother), bunnies, and making mommy and daddy laugh. The newest member of our family, Liam, loves smiling at his family, eating, sleeping, and being really cute. Together, we love Seattle, but especially, we love Jesus and his church.
We believe that God is calling us to plant a church in Northeast Seattle. Our corner of the city is neither urban, nor suburban. It is the perfect blend of both, which also makes it uniquely neither of those. The apparent contradictions go deeper as well. Our neighbors are disconnected, yet longing for community; enraged over injustice, and starving for righteous judgement; suspicious of redeemers, yet waiting for deliverance from science and human progress; struggling to find an identity, yet still forging a path forward; irreligious, yet deeply spiritual. We believe that Jesus Christ is the only one who is able to challenge these idolatries and answer these longings. We desire to plant a church that extends his grace to our neighbors and see Christ’s Kingdom spread in this city.
Your giving helps provide for our family, and our ministry, we couldn’t do this without you. Thank you for your support!
Gifts can be sent via check or money order made payable to MNA. Ministry or church plant names should be clearly designated with a note accompanying the check or money order.
