Rev. Jane Plantinga Pauw, Pastor

Educated at Calvin College and Fuller Theological Seminary, our pastor and her husband, Jack, live in Seattle’s Beacon Hill neighborhood with their pittbull, Obie, and occasionally one of their young adult daughters.  Some of Jane’s passions in ministry are multicultural issues, creativity in worship and music, Christian community development, and spiritual growth.  If you ask her what she loves most about our church, she will say “our beautiful mosaic of people, otherwise known as our motley crew”.  Jane and Jack have travelled to six continents and 34 countries, and consider their travel the best part of their education.  Our pastor’s passion for our church is to help the congregation implement its Purpose, Values, and Ministry Priorities (see document).
