Doug Kothe, Pastor
Doug and his wife Lori moved to Lake Stevens in August of 2013 after church planting in Federal Way, Washington for two years.  It didn’t take them long to fall in love with the Pacific Northwest. 

They have a passion for people, relationships, and for seeing how Jesus works in people's lives, changing them, growing them, and using them for his purposes.

Lori has become a stay at home mom since the Lord blessed them with three precious children (Michael 9, Jesse 7, Brianna 4.) Growing out of the story God has been writing for them, Doug and Lori have a passion for the orphan, which can be seen in their growing family.

Before coming to Washington they lived and ministered for 5 years in St. Louis, Missouri where they attended Covenant Theological Seminary, both receiving a Masters of Divinity degree, while working at Crossroads Presbyterian Fellowship in Maplewood, Missouri.

Prior to moving to St. Louis, Doug worked for Campus Crusade for Christ in various ministries for eleven years, and Lori for five.

As a family, they love family movie nights, reading out loud, being silly together, spending time with others, and playing games. Doug loves being outside, enjoys sports of all kinds, and exploring the Pacific Northwest, while Lori enjoys reading, creating beauty out of unlikely things, and learning to play the guitar.
