Welcome, Bridge Builder!
George grew up on a farm and loves to tell chic額en farm stories. The idea of “sowing” and “reaping” has been embedded in his life philosophy since childhood. He believes that God’s Gospel of salvation is for every tribe and that God has called all of us to sow the seed of the Gospel to every corner of the world. He and his wife joined ECBC Church in the 70s and served in many ministries before God called him to study in Seminary. They have 2 daughters and a son and have gained a son-in-law and a daughter-in-law. They recently became grandparents of one-year-old baby James. George is passionate about people impacting people with God’s living truth! He gets excited hearing testimonies of people whose lives are being transformed through 額nowing and experiencing God.

During this time Arthur earned a Doctorate of Ministry at Carey Theological College and helped his wife Janice raise their 2 children.

Chris was born and raised in Seattle, Washington. Youngest of three children, Chris grew up in a Christian family and was (quite literally) dragged to church every single Sunday. In 2006 he graduated from the University of Washington with his bachelors degree in Chemical Engineering, then proceeded to work in a number of random jobs while he tried to figure out what to do with his life. After much soul searching he felt called to attend seminary at Regent College in Vancouver, BC. This year Chris just got married on Nov.
