Our Local Ministry Leaders

Mark Driscoll
Mark DriscollSenior & Founding Pastor
Our Founding and Senior Pastor, Mark Driscoll, is a Jesus-following, mission-leading, church-serving, people-loving, Bible-preaching pastor. He’s grateful to be a nobody trying to tell everybody about Somebody.

Born in North Dakota, Pastor Mark grew up the son of a union drywaller in south Seattle.

At the age of 17, a young woman named Grace gave Mark, a non-practicing Catholic, a leather Bible with his name embossed on it. It was the event that would change his life forever, because he was born again reading that same Bible in college.

Associate Pastor Dustin Blatnik grew up in Washington. Growing up, where music was popular in his home, he received his first electric guitar at the age of nine and has not put it down since. He gave his heart to Jesus at the age of 15 and is passionate about being a Christian husband, father, and friend.

Since high school, Dustin has performed with and led many bands. Dustin says, “One of the bands, named Infusion, was life changing for me. We were a group of multi-cultural, interdenominational, at-risk youth who came together for one purpose — to celebrate God’s love for the lost. We were able to tour the nation and make a great impact for Christ in the communities we served.”
