Our Church Elders

At North Sound Church we are blessed to have spiritual depth, life experience and mature disciples of Jesus Christ on our board of elders.

About Our Elders

Elders are men and women called and appointed by God, confirmed by members of the church, and entrusted with the task of leadership. They are committed to the responsibility of being examples to the congregation, giving the church direction, teaching the people, and leading the church.

We are thankful to them, for their service and commitment to the vision God has given His church in downtown Edmonds.

Since moving to the Seattle area, his ministry roles have included Sunday school teacher, Bible Study Fellowship group leader, church deacon, usher, Alpha volunteer, and an adult mentor position with Reach Ministries.

Some of the greatest joys in John’s and LeAnne’s lives have been the friendships, community, and ‘living life together’ experiences God has given them through the Small Group they have been a part of since 1997. John and LeAnne have three wonderful children: John (plus his wife Dora), Amanda, & Claire; and have lived in Edmonds since 2012.
