Leadership & Staff
Family: My wife Kelly and I have been married 35 years and are native to the Northwest. We have two sons, two daughters-in-law and two grandchildren. Both sons and their families live in the Seattle area. We love spending time with family and invite our grandchildren to come and stay with us often. Responsibilities: I lead our Pastoral Staff Team and serve as an Elder and as a Trustee. I have shared responsibilities in our preaching/teaching ministry, and lead several small groups during the week. Hobbies: Golfing, hiking, fishing, hunting, home-improvement projects, and I am kind of a fitness junkie.
Family: My wife Adela and I are the proud parents of our 5 year old son, Levi. He keeps us young, energized and full of life. Family and friends are important to us and are vital to our sense of community. So much of what we do outside of ministry will include them. Background: I was born in Transylvania, so be careful at midnight around me. Hobbies: Love trying new foods and enjoy good coffee! Love paddle-boarding, golfing, cycling and sports in general. Favorite books: Bible! (DUH). Responsibilities: An all-encompassing phrase would be “other duties as assigned!”
Family: I’ve been married to my husband and partner in ministry, Jeff, for my entire adult life. I am mom to two sons, two daughters, two daughters-in-law, and grandmother to 18-month old Gracie. Responsibilities: The best way to describe my role at Journey is that I am the behind-the-scenes support to help all ministry leaders and teams succeed. I also pastor our Community Group Ministry Leaders. Hobbies: Hiking, walking, biking, cooking and hosting dinner parties!
