Tim Richards

Tim first came to Sequim as a boy. He met his wife, Branette, in eighth grade at the bus stop and knew he was hooked. After High School, Tim & Branette both attended Prairie Bible College, earning Bachelors in Religious Education. They married in 1984.

Shawn Stanton

Pastor of Adult Ministries

Shawn was born and raised here in the Pacific Northwest. He grew up in a family that was, and still is, heavily entrenched in the Jehovah’s Witnesses religion. After years of doubt and guilt he left the religion at age 30, leaving behind most of the family and friends he had ever known. For the next 15 years he searched and fell, searched and fell again as he looked for the God he knew existed. In nothing less than a miracle God found him wandering around an old dusty bookstore on the island of Kauai and the miracles haven’t stopped since!

In 2007 God introduced him to Becky and two years later they were married. Shawn has two children, Quinn and Sahara and two step-daughters, Taylor and Sydney.

Britt began ministry in 1982 as a volunteer connecting with Seattle street youth.  From 1985-94 he was a teacher and coach at Port Angeles High School, along the way serving as a youth group leader and a Young Life leader.
