Our Mission

For over 100+ years, The Fairview Church has existed to introduce people to the transforming power of Jesus Christ, anointed by the Holy Spirit, to proclaim, heal, free, and restore (Luke 4:16-21).

It is a real joy for us to meet newcomers! We say come as you are. You don’t need a manual to figure out how to join in worship with us, pray with us, and engage in our Sunday message. Just come and be a part. Jesus simply says: “Come to me” and we say the same!

What We Believe

Our Ministry Leaders

As the Lead pastor it is my privilege to welcome you to the Fairview Church. It is our purpose to help the church minister to the people of the Seattle area and beyond.

My wife, Courtney, and I have been working together in ministry since 2007. We have 3 beautiful children: son Tre, daughter Elekana, & son Isaia. I graduated from Oklahoma Christian University in Portland, OR. My journey started in Vancouver, WA working for a non-profit that focused on teen suicide prevention and local outreach. I then served at King’s Way Christian Schools/Vancouver Church of God as the high school Bible teacher and the Golf & Track head coach and then transitioned to serving as the Missions Pastor for Vancouver Church and joined the Church of God – Global Strategy team. Before landing in Seattle I served as the Associate/Missions Pastor at Cloverdale Church of God in Boise, ID. Now as the Lead Pastor here at The Fairview Church in Seattle, I feel a genuine spirit of family and community.

Whether church attendance is a customary habit for you or you have no idea what people do when they gather on Sunday mornings, you are welcome to come and find out what we are all about. Join us Sundays at 10:30am in-person or online!

Global Connection

The Fairview Church is part of The Church of God (Anderson, Indiana) which is a global movement of people seeking to fulfill God’s mission in the world. We’re committed to studying the Word of God and faithfully living it out. We’re committed to the mission that Jesus Christ gave every believer: to make disciples of all nations (Matt 28:18–20).

To me, going to church should be about being involved with your faith and community, not just dressing up, sitting back, then getting on with the rest of the week. I feel involved in both my faith and community with Fairview, between feeling challenged to live my faith on a daily basis and by volunteering in various ministries with them.

I was first introduced to an amazing faith-filled couple from The Fairview Church through an evangelical ministry with which we volunteered together. The husband invited me to visit his church family, though I was unclear about the name and location. I walked into The Fairview Church, after being out of touch with him for nearly 3 years, saw his familiar face and my family has since been welcomed in and attending this historic and rich Fairview Church Family.

There is no better place to be on a Sunday morning than Fairview. For over 33 years, we have been blessed to have Fairview friends we regard as family. In the many challenges of life, this spiritual family is always ready to offer prayer support, encouragement, faith, and humor.
