Meet the team

We love our church, our city, and a good laugh.

Reach is led by a team of people with different backgrounds, experiences and passions. Some of us are paid leaders, and some of us volunteer.

We’re honored to be in the roles we are in, and we have a lot of fun, but our primary focus is to equip you for a life of purpose in God's family and on His mission.

Leadership

Church elders equip us to Be the Church and Reach the City through keeping everything we do focused on our vision and values.

Associate Pastor

I have had the honor of serving Jesus from childhood, and am now supporting the men’s, marriage and care ministries at Reach. Through the years I’ve worn many hats around church, and Reach has been home since June of 2013. He really enjoys his family. God has used my wife, Stephanie, and me to further His Kingdom over the years. There’s no better feeling in the world than participating in God’s plan of redemption and restoration. I pray it never ends. I know it costs everything. It’s worth every last cent.

Associate Pastor
Lead Pastor

Canadian-born and Texas-raised, I first landed in the Seattle area in 2003 on a basketball scholarship at Northwest University for what I thought would be a 2-year stay to finish my business degree. However, after falling in love with the city and with my now-wife, Emilie, I knew I had found my new home.

Emilie and I started Reach with our two kids and a handful of friends in the summer of 2012. Since then we’ve seen a whole lot of strangers become family, sent out a few church plants of our own, plowed through a masters degree at Western Seminary, and added three more kiddos to our household.

I love basketball, good books, and Tex-Mex, but most of my time goes to chasing my five kiddos — Boston, Ryder, Banner, Scottie, and Arrow…and I wouldn’t want it any other way.

Lead Pastor
Communities Pastor

Hi, I’m Josh Siegel and I’m one of the pastors here. I oversee our communities and our culture, so lots of what I do is summed up in questions like: “Can I belong and grow here? Can I take Jesus seriously and not take myself too seriously?” My wife Amy and I helped start Reach with simple hope that you would have an opportunity to lean into those questions and Be the Church and Reach the City. We have 3 daughters and we love Bothell.

Staff

Pastors and department leads help us to belong, serve, and care for each other and the city.

Early Childhood Lead

I have the joy of caring for the youngest members of our church family. The 4 and under crowd are my people! I’m grateful for the chance to share Jesus’ love with them and help equip their parents to do the same throughout the week. My husband, Roy, and I started coming to Reach in 2014, and have been at home ever since. I’m a full-time nanny and coffee drinker. I love singing along with all sorts of music in the car or whatever is stuck in my head. I love space, movies, space movies, and running the occasional triathlon.

Creative Team Lead

I lead a team of creatives who love serving the church and glorifying Jesus through photography, videography, and design. I'm passionate about using creativity to simplify complex thoughts, ideas, and feelings. I stumbled upon Reach almost 7 years ago when I moved from California to the Seattle area and have had the joy of being a part of this church family ever since. I also like pizza just a little too much, just ask my friends. Go Lakers.

Creative Team Lead
Communications + Media Lead

I lead Reach in inspring and equipping our people to be the church and reach our city by executing on the vision and voice of our church. I get excited about innovation, collaboration, creativity, and all things technology. I landed at Reach in the fall of 2013 and have served here ever since. I’m so thankful for our special family and am honored to serve such a generous and Gospel-centered community. I'm always obsessed with something I love to blab about, and I obsess over book, movie, and podcast recs. **P.S. My parents would like you to know my name is pronounced (STE-fin) 😄.

Director of Operations

I oversee all things operations related. That means I get to serve the Reach staff and community in a variety of areas like finance, staff development, HR, facilities, Serve Teams, event planning, making mobile church happen, and more. I love working with leaders to solve complex puzzles of all kinds. It's an incredibly fun role that takes place mostly behind the scenes.

Jackie, my wife, and I have been at Reach since 2015. We love spending time with friends and adventuring near and far. Soccer, snowboarding, paddleboarding and sushi are my jam. Oh, and I grew up in Japan.

Worship Pastor

Oh hi! I’m Zach and I lead our music and gatherings teams. We lead our church to highly value worshipping Jesus, both in our singing and in our daily lives. I have been leading worship in the church since I was 14 years old. My beautiful wife Shelby and I have 3 wonderful, hilarious children – Lily, Piper, and Archer. I’m a Texan and I love all kinds of pop music. Weird.

Elementary Kids Lead

I oversee Sunday shenanigans for Elementary kids and equip the team to provide fun, consistent opportunities for kids to know the Gospel and what Jesus did for them. My high school sweetheart Nick and I have two smart blondies Emma and Henry. We landed at Reach's very first service on a recommendation from a friend to try a "cool new church plant" near our new home. I'm a Kansas girl who married a Navy man so I've grown to love adventure but love me some snacks and a good flick/game night too. Also smiling is my favorite.

Women's Lead

I have the great joy of overseeing women's events, leading our Bible studies and helping women find their people. I am passionate about creating spaces, resources, and connections that enable women to go deeper in their relationship with Jesus and with one another. My husband Stephen and I were young whippersnappers when we helped plant Reach and have stuck around ever since. We have three kids (Jamison, Reese and Max) each of whom inspire us to throw dance parties in the kitchen as often as we can.

Counseling Pastor

I am a counselor who oversees care at Reach. I meet with our people who are dealing with special circumstances (loss, anxiety, depression, addiction, etc.) and I open the Bible with them.  It’s awesome. I also direct a counseling program at a local school, working with at-risk teens. My wife Kindal and I love to share our story with others. Reach found us years ago when we were hurting and desperately in need of God’s voice.  I’m a cheese addict (I can quit anytime I want to), overly committed to Nebraska football, tattoo enthusiast, and have a child-posse of 4 cool kiddos.

Counseling Pastor
College Pastor

My husband Ben and I pastor our college-age adults (18-22 year olds). I started attending Reach as a college student myself and it was a very pivotal season for me so I am humbled that this is the group I have the honor of serving. My desire is to help our students grow as disciples of Jesus and make disciples of Jesus in their communities, on their campuses, in their families, and at their work places. My friends, co-workers, students, and husband often joke that I am a 70 year old grandma at heart, and I unashamedly think they're right.

College Pastor
Next Gen Ministry Coordinator

I’m passionate about helping people know Jesus, and we believe that happens in the context of community. I started attending Reach with my family as a freshman in college. Being a part of this community has deepened my understanding of what it means to live in relationship with Jesus and to be a member of His family. It is my desire to support students as they walk with Jesus and to empower them to engage in their community. I can’t wait to throw a party so you can meet your people and love Jesus with them!

Team

Volunteer Team Leaders use their gifts to serve the church they love. We’re honored and inspired by their generosity.

Connections

I have the great opportunity to help people feel plugged-in, involved in our community and part of this awesome family we call Reach. In a nutshell, I get to connect people with a group that is right for them! I am a PNW native, and I have been calling Reach home since 2014. My wonderful husband Lawrence and I have a sweet and energetic son, Maddox, and are expecting a new addition to our family soon.

Meet-ups

I oversee our Meet-Ups, facilitating low-stakes ways for people to get plugged in, build community, and share the things that they are passionate about. I joined Reach back when it launched just to help out some friends for a little, but I haven’t been able to tear myself away from the elite teaching and rich culture. I’ve traveled around the world trying to find someplace better than Seattle and I’ve failed, but I love the challenge – as long as I get to come hang to backyard hangs with friends.

Local Mission

I oversee Reach's local mission efforts through our Serve the City events! My heart behind these events is to serve and know our neighbors and friends. This is so that they may see Christ’s love. I’ve attended Reach for four years and have loved every minute. I grew up in Oregon and am one of eleven children (yes you read that right). Oh, and my mom is my hero.

Worship Leader

People are my passion and I am honored to have the opportunity to listen and encourage others. I’ve been at Reach since 2014 and it has changed my life. I was drawn in by the authenticity of the people and their desire to learn how to love like Jesus does; on purpose, and in community. My heart is to help facilitate safe spaces where people can meet with God through song, story, prayer, or coffee (love coffee). I’m a teacher and married to my wonderful husband Ryan. If you haven’t met me I’m the one who is always singing…

Community Admin

Keeping my garden, cooking for friends/family, dining with friends, and going for long walks with my prayer partners fill me with joy and balance my near obsession with data, systems, and processes (which I love). My husband, Paul, and I have been at Reach for 4+ years; together, we lead the Marriage Care Team. We are blessed to have 4 adult children; 3 are married (so now we have 7 adult children!). In 2015 we began the wonderful adventure of grandparenting; we have 5 wonderful, delightful grandchildren.

Women's Team Admin

Hey Ya’ll, most people around the church know me as Bee. I create fun women centric content for Reach’s Women's Digital Communications. I get to design our women’s monthly emails; helping connect the women at Reach by sharing upcoming events, podcasts, devotionals, and so much more. Finding Reach church a little over a year ago is one of my biggest blessings. I was looking to find community and connect with other women who loved Jesus fiercely and freely, I found so much more, I found a sisterhood. Now I get to do the same thing for other women at Reach!

Kids Director

I have the great privilege of spending each week caring for the kids of Reach and the wonderful volunteers who serve them. I'm passionate about kids and their families seeing what it looks like to be the church, love Jesus, and share his love with the people around them. My family has been at Reach since 2014. My wife is Kirsten, our terrific kids are Greta and Oliver, and our silly dog is Joan (of Bark). In my spare time, you can usually find me trying to make good things out of wood, grain and yeast, wires, or sometimes food.
