Dave was born in Southern California (Northridge) and grew up in the San Fernando Valley. He and his wife now live in Bellevue, WA – about 11 miles from where the Seahawks play. In their free time, they enjoy reading, traveling, gardening, and drinking coffee! If Dave could go anywhere in the world, he’d love to go back to Italy and to visit Greece for the first time.

Rev. Mike Somers

Executive Pastor

Mike was born and grew up in La Crescenta, CA, and now lives in Camarillo, CA. He enjoys traveling with his wife, Jane, golfing, reading long novels, and learning to play the cello. If he could go anywhere in the world, it would be to Burundi, Africa, to continue the work of helping pastors fulfill their vision of healthy churches.

Rev. Rick Dunn

Director of Church Multiplication

Rick grew up in Montclair, CA, outside of Los Angeles, and he now lives in Point Loma, CA. In his free time, he enjoys bicycling, collecting classic cars, cooking, gardening, and reading good books. If he could go anywhere in the world, it would be New Zealand.

Rev. Phil Graf

Director of Coaching

Phil grew up in New York – The Stony Brook School – and now lives in Oxnard, CA. He enjoys playing sports in his free time… when his aging body allows him to. If he could go anywhere in the world he would either travel to New Zealand for the first time or return to Cinque Terre, Italy.

Rev. Doug Posey

Director of Credentialing

Doug was born in Dearborn, Michigan, but feels like a California native, having lived there from the age of 2. He now lives in Thousand Oaks, CA. In his free time, he enjoys dining, traveling, shopping with his wife Wendi, working out, and listening to Audible books and podcasts. When he asked Wendi where she would like to go if given the chance, she said, “Alaskan cruise.” Okay.

Veronica Addae

Admin Assistant

A Brooklyn native, Veronica continues living in the New York neighborhood. She enjoys going on walks in nature in her free time and would love to live in Southern France.

Rachael Martinez

Communications Assistant

A Seattle native, Rachael lived in both Ukraine and Argentina before returning to Seattle with her husband. She enjoys walking through outdoor markets anywhere in the world, exploring new places, getting to know people from difference cultures, and can’t say no to a good cup of coffee – even better if enjoyed with good company! She would either return to Europe or get to know Central Asia if given the chance.
