In September 2017, my family and I, along with some friends, started a church in Everett called Reach. We’re part of a family of churches who love Jesus and our region. A lot. Being motivated by a Gospel of hope, rescue, and redemption, we’ve found much joy serving a God who invites outsiders and wanderers–people like us–into His family. My greatest desire is to spend my life sharing that story with anyone who might listen.
I’m a true local to Snohomish County. I grew up here, and I can’t imagine living anywhere else. Before stepping into pastoral ministry in 2009, I was a volunteer worship leader, touring musician, Bible school student, and keeper of odd jobs (carpet cleaning, coffee roasting, Trader Joe’s, to name a few). I’m married to my best friend, Kara. We have a daughter named Adelie, and a baby boy named Leo.
Reach functions thanks to an army of volunteers who help turn our vision into reality. We’re a better place because of them!
Come by on a Sunday! We’d be stoked to meet you.
Hey! I’m Stephen and I help facilitate all things worship and gatherings around here. I get excited for what’s possible when the Church gets together to sing, pray, open Scripture, and hear from God. My passion is for pointing people to Jesus through the medium’s of art and technology and I am grateful for the opportunity to be involved with both here at Reach.
I’ve been leading worship since I picked up a guitar in high school, and spend most of my work week as a vocational songwriter and music producer.
I am married to my best friend Tayla, who’s often helping me lead worship. We love traveling (27 countries and counting), food (that reminds us of our travels), coffee (because it never doesn’t sound good), and Seattle sports (actually that’s just me…my wife half-cares to appease me).
We live in Everett and can’t imagine living elsewhere.
I've lived in Snohomish County my entire life and have called Everett home for the past 10 years. I love this community! I've been married since 2011 to my best friend, Stephen, and together we are parents to one beautiful little girl named Louisa. Stephen and I have had the joy of visiting over 27 countries together and hope to share that love for travel with Louisa. We also are big fans of eating good food and drinking good coffee - so that's how we spend the majority of our free time.
Besides being a wife and a mom, it is truly one of the greatest joys in my life to get to be a part of the Reach team, helping people find a place to belong in community and stay true to the mission we feel God has uniquely called us to. What I get most excited about is strangers becoming family. My hope is that people will always feel welcomed and at home no matter where they're at in their spiritual journey.
If you're looking to get connected, I'd love to help! Shoot me an email :)
