REACH IS A new church in downtown everett, WA.
For any disciple of Jesus, when God says "Go," the natural response is simply, "Will I follow?"
In 2016, my family and I took a massive step from the known to the unknown: a step towards church planting. We never dreamed that God would move us from worship ministry into "lead" roles in any capacity. Obviously God had other plans.
This fall, we invited a small core group to join us in discover what it could mean to "be the church and reach the city" in South Snohomish County, specifically Everett. That core group rapidly grew to 50...then 60...and with the rotating faces we've been seeing, about 75 folks who are leaning in.
Our next logical response: go with it!
While we are teaching to vision, building community, and equipping the saints for the work of the ministry, we are also dreaming of what's around the corner. Our goal is to fully launch in early 2018, communicating to as many in the 98201 zip code (and beyond) that there's a church who's for them, but more importantly, a God who is reaching out to them.
You're invited to play a vital role in seeing this dream becoming a reality. Welcome to the story of Reach Everett.

NOTE: In this video, I mention that Snohomish county is the 2nd "largest" county in the nation. What I meant was, it's the 2nd "fastest growing" county in the nation, which is absolutely true (you'll see the infograph).
