Mike Labrum / Lead Pastor
Faith: Born and raised in SLC, UT I quickly learned that I was different from everyone else around me. I was raised in a small baptist church and wrestled through the difference of knowing the “right answers” from truly owning my faith. By age 12 I had fully committed my life to Jesus which began a crazy, messy faith filled journey that I’ve been on ever since.
Family: In 2003 I moved to Portland to finish school and met my wife, Elizabeth. We were married in June of 2005 and have two amazing kids, Landin and Audrey. We lived in Portland until 2012 before moving to Seattle.
Fun: I love getting outdoors and being active with my family. We enjoy spending the day at the beach, traveling to new places and looking for fun new experiences. We love cultural food, The Portland Timbers and are big Seahawks fans.
Trent Siverson / Pastor of Global and Local Missions & Manager of The Bridge Coffee House
Faith: Currently in my faith journey I am attempting to fully embrace God's view of me, be gracious toward myself, and know what it truly means to follow Christ in our culture.
Family: My wife Heather and I are both born and raised in Seattle and have been married since 2012.
Fun: I enjoy brewing and drinking coffee, reading, playing soccer, traveling with my wife, and being outdoors.
Matt Broweleit / Worship Pastor
Faith: I learned about Jesus as a kid through my family and through my church. I actually grew up going to North Seattle Church, so many of my spiritual roots come from being a part of this community. I remember even as a middle schooler going on a youth group retreat and being struck by the sacrifice Jesus made for us. It was very real for me. Today I continue to be in awe of God's grace for broken people like me.
Family: I'm pretty grateful for my family, the Broweleits. There is some family debate as to the meaning of the word Broweleit. In German it may mean "brave people," or it may mean "brewery people." We're not sure... Either way, it's a great name. I have fantastic parents and some cool siblings. I am married to a remarkable woman that I don't deserve named Katie. We have four kids, 3 girls and a boy. I love being a dad and enjoying the mess and adventure of life with my little crew. I learn everyday that it is more important to love than to be right.
Fun: I am a pretty chill person. I have yet to go bungee jumping, skydiving, or summit a real mountain. I like being with people. I like having coffee or a beer and hearing someone's story. I love making music. I enjoy the creative process where people get to know themselves, their own fears and insecurities, eventually expressing something from deep within. I enjoy beauty, whether in nature, in silence, or in art. I thoroughly enjoy being with my wife and my kids. I love sports, though I kind of have a love/hate relationship with anything pertaining to celebrity culture. I have mostly traded basketball for soccer. Go M's! Go Hawks! I enjoy reading and am currently writing my first book.
Katie Broweleit / Kid's Director
Faith: I grew up primarily in North Carolina, but moved to California for my last two years of high school and it was there that I came to know Jesus through Young Life. My college years were spent diving deeper into my relationship with Jesus and growing in my faith alongside an incredible community of believers. I am truly humbled to walk through all the craziness and ups and downs of life with Jesus.
Family: I am married to an incredible man, Matt, and together we have 4 kids - Annabelle, Elizabeth, Andrew, and Mia. I absolutely love being a mom and am passionate about raising kids and creating a home that helps kids learn who they are in Jesus.
Fun: I love being with people and spending time with friends and family. I love playing games, having people over to our house, and watching sports. We love the Seahawks in our house!
