Wes and Jen have been married for over 20 years and have the privilege of raising three amazing kids: Carissa, Kailey and Cole. Renton residents since 2008, they love living in a town that is moving and growing. Pastor Wes can often be found at one of many great restaurants or coffee houses all around Renton. He has a passion to lead and teach the Bible simply and has a heart to lead a church that connects with the culture around it. A few of Pastor Wes’s favorite things are: his wife (of course), his kiddos, music, food, sports of all kinds (Go Hawks!) and great coffee.
Pastor Jen is passionate about serving the church and her community through authentic relationships and plenty of good-natured laughter. As the Executive Pastor, Jen serves the church by managing the little details that often go overlooked and making sure that nothing gets lost in the shuffle. She 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 me laugh too), relationships, music, food, and good television.
When it comes to the five-fold ministry, Pastor Jesse is really more of a teacher with a prophetic edge, which makes him a perfect match for his very-pastoral wife, Genesis. Jesse grew up in church, was a Criminal Justice major at Seattle University, and was in the middle of law school when he heard God call him into a life of ministry. Pastor Jesse has been on staff at City View since the fall of 2018.
When he isn't engaged in church ministry, Jesse enjoys watching movies, general introverting, and watching, discussing and playing sports - go Hawks! Mariners, meh.
Go Sounders! Go Storm! Go Kraken! And bring back the Sonics! Jesse is a North Westerner through-and-through, except he (gasp) doesn't drink coffee!
Nathan is our MixMaster and overall behind-the-scenes guy. He is passionate about serving, anywhere and everywhere. Nathan is the solid lets-go-for-it guy every team needs. Moving to Renton from Virginia, he brings his love of Jesus and desire to connect people to Him wherever he goes. A few of Nathan’s favorite things are: Laura (the other Master), hockey, video games and camping.
Laura is our WebMaster and design guru. Her passion is to create with the ability that God has given her and it is shown in everything she produces. She is the super out-going shy person that everyone needs in their life. Laura makes doing church together fun and full of life. A few of Laura’s favorite things are: Nathan (husband and MixMaster), Design (duh), hiking/camping and hockey (Go Seattle Kraken and T-Birds!)
