Meet the Team
Shawn has made his home in Washington for the last twenty five years. He got started at Living Word as the interim pastor and since taking the helm has sought to build us into a local church with a global reach. His passion for people is surpassed only by a passion for scripture. When he's not here you might see him working Pierce Transit or playing games with his family of four. Looking for someone who loves Christmas more than any other day of the year? Shawn's your guy.
Restoration Projects, Worship Ministry
Trickett's work at Living Word is to help spearhead the projects that are moving us forward as a church. Whether it's painting, planning, or doing the heavy lifting, you can expect to see her putting her heart and her efforts into helping us grow. Like what you see when you visit us? There's a good chance she had something to do with it.
Ned and Bev Gabel
Administrative Services, Worship Ministry
Ned and Bev both attended Washington colleges to complete their education. It's safe to say that Living Word's infrastructure is kept on a solid foundation thanks to their hard work. When they're not helping us connect to the community, you might find them either fishing or decorating, connecting their faith to their activities.
Tom and Patti Kebschull
Bible Studies, Prayer Ministries
Washington natives, Tom and Patti both seek to connect people with faith however they can. Active volunteers for Joseph's Storehouse, these two can be found fly fishing or enjoying time out on the lake when they're not at Living Word either praying or teaching.
