Todd & Angela St. Germain

Lead Pastor

Todd was born in Bellevue and raised in Kirkland. He has served as a pastoral leader and in leadership development for the last 25 years in New York, Virginia, and Washington State. He is passionate about people and their journeys and desires to see the church activated towards personal surrender, missional outreach, and experience the fullness of all God has designed for it. Todd believes wholeheartedly that an encounter with Jesus changes everything.    

Todd and Angela have three daughters and one grandson, their greatest joy and triumph. Angela was born and raised in upstate New York, loves Jesus, and ministers to people inside and outside the church. When Todd has free time, he likes to catch up on reading, people-watching, and enjoying the outdoors.

Todd would enjoy the chance to connect further.

In her free time, she enjoys a multitude of crafts and interior decorating, sipping a good strong cup of coffee, grooving to 70s and 80s hits, shopping Puget Sound Hobby Lobbies, and collaborating with her husband over the dreams and plans they share for their modest 1940s home.  She would love to connect with you over coffee!
