About Seattle

Seattle is one of the fastest growing cities in the US and is home to the Space Needle, Pike Place Market, Starbucks, Microsoft, Mount Rainier, and more. It’s also known as a city that most people move to in order to run away from tradition Christian values. Join our team as we “run to them” this summer to show and share the Gospel through various outreach projects in partnerships with local churches.
