Pastor Wes has been in ministry for over 20 years and is passionate to lead people, teach the Bible simply and has a heart to lead a church that connects with the culture around it. Wes and Jen are coming up on 20 years of marriage and have the privilege of raising three amazing kids: Carissa, Kailey and Cole. Wes can often be found at one of many great restaurants or coffee houses all around Renton. A few of his favorite things are: his wife (of course), his kiddos, music, food, sports of all kinds (Go Hawks!) and great coffee.
Jen is passionate about serving the church and her community through authentic relationships and plenty of good-natured laughter. Jen serves the church by managing the little details that often go overlooked, & making sure that nothing gets lost in the shuffle. She is married to Wes, and is a happily exhausted mom of their three kiddos. A few of Jen’s favorite things are: her husband (he makes me laugh), her kiddos (they make her laugh too), relationships, music, and food
Pastor Jesse is a NW guy through-and-through (except he doesn’t drink coffee) and is passionate about building vibrant and diverse community in and amongst the Church. In true NW form, Jesse is a bit of a rebel, willing to challenge the status quo, bring new ideas and lead people to the biblical standards for faith, discipleship and Christ-likeness. Jesse is quick to tell you he is an introvert, but he is also a bit of a goofball who can certainly be the life of the party. Jesse and Genesis have been married for nine years, share an office, pretty much everything else in life, and still can’t get enough of each other! Jesse’s idea of R&R is peaceful time out in nature, catching a movie (or two), time with family and passionately defending his position that LeBron is the G.o.a.T.
Genesis’ was born in the church. As she describes, she remembers being in church with her family every day that ended with the letter Y. Because of this, Genesis has served in almost every ministry/department, though her primary call is evident through her gift of worship and service through youth/young adults ministry which she has been a part of for over 10+ years in various capacities. Genesis loves to laugh, read & meet new people. When she’s not at church, you can usually find her somewhere taking a nap or watching HGTV next to Jesse. A few of Genesis’ favorite things are her amazing husband Jesse, her family, music, anything purple, sparkly or cutesy, Disney and playing board games with family and friends. And she still thinks we should’ve given the ball to Marshawn.
