Daniel Son – Lead Pastor

Pastor Daniel and Lydia have been serving in ministry together since 2003. Lydia is native to the Seattle area and Daniel moved from his hometown of New York in 2001. He graduated from Wheaton College and Gordon-Conwell seminary. They have two growing boys (Micah and Caleb) and together they love living in and enjoying the Pacific Northwest. They love playing sports, biking, hiking and just enjoying the beauty of God’s creation. Their greatest passion is Jesus and the good news of His amazing grace. The message is simple. Regardless of who you are, where you’ve been and where you are now, you are BELOVED by God, because of Christ alone. The hope of this church is to be a community of people living out and proclaiming this beautiful message of Christ’s grace.

Andrea Kim – Children’s Ministry Director

Born in Indonesia and raised in the Midwest, Andrea moved to the Seattle area in July 2017 to follow God’s calling in her life to full-time ministry. She felt led to vocational ministry after experiencing the power of God in her own life when she was a teenager. With passions both in music and children’s ministry, God led her to pursue higher education in both arenas at Wheaton College (IL) and University of Cincinnati Conservatory of Music in preparation for His plans. Andrea is excited to collaborate these passions together to serve God’s people and His church. She desires for children to know and believe that they are truly loved by God and live their callings as disciples of Christ. In her spare time, Andrea enjoys spending time with her husband, PK, hiking, traveling, and playing board games together.

Nathan Shin – Youth Pastor

Pastor Nathan is a native of the Seattle area and has lived there for most of his life. He first sensed God’s call to serve the church while volunteering in a local youth ministry as a college student. He attended the University of Washington for his undergraduate studies and Regent College for seminary. Today, Pastor Nathan desires to share the love and grace of the Gospel and help people to integrate their faith in their everyday lives. In his spare time, he enjoys boxing, taking naps, and spending time with his wife, Diane and their 10 year old dog, Toby.
