Our Team

Perry Burkholder
Lead Pastor

I love Jesus because he changed my life at 14 years of age and I have been following Him ever since. (It’s a great story, I would have to tell you sometime.) In May 2009, my wife and I along with our 4 kids, moved from Scotland to Seattle to join this incredible church as lead pastor.

Danielle Burkholder
Discipleship Pastor

In 2015 it was my honor to join the pastoral staff as I was feeling called to give more time to preaching God’s truth, to inspire people to live passionately for Jesus as His disciples, and to develop leaders to advance the kingdom of God. It is all such a privilege, I can’t believe I get to do this job!


Jovy Gamiao

I am so glad to have joined this awesome team working together toward a common goal: to multiply disciples who love God, one another and the lost!
