Pastor of College and Young Adults at Christ the King

One of the ekklesia facilitators 

Bellingham, Wa

Garret has been involved in Jesus centered faith communities for the last 12 years. 

Most of Garret's career has involved creating discipleship spaces for early to late adolescents in both traditional and experimental evangelical church environments in Orange County, CA, Boulder, CO, and Bellingham, WA. He has also spent time out side of vocational church work spending 5 years working for Apple Computers as a software/technology teacher, and a trainer for new employees.

His areas of interest are vast, and his time management skills are negligible. This mix of skills has had the effect of giving him a "C+" understanding in fields ranging from theology, philosophy, pop-culture, music, sociology, economics, human development, technology and politics. All this means that Garret has strong opinions about things he has a surface level understanding about thus making exciting dinner conversation.  

Garret has B.A. degree in Biblical Studies from Azusa Pacific University and currently spends a majority of his professional time as the Pastor of Ekklesia, the college and young adults ministry of Christ the King Church in Bellingham, WA. 

Garret is married to Aubrey and is the father of the two beautiful girls and a son pictured above.
