Body Of Christ

We hope everyone will play a role in forming the character, plans, and work of our Church.  Jesus said a Church should function as his “body”. We are meant to be vitally interdependent. We think the role of Church leadership should be to help people identify their spiritual gifts and create structures for everyone to flourish. The future of Christianity needs leadership that isn't defined by who leads the Christian meetings, but rather by who brings the love of God to new places. There is space for everyone’s entrepreunership and investment in this larger vision.

Pastors

Caleb Kytonen always wants to stay up late talking. He is fiercely loyal to his friends, loves philosophy and listens to podcasts like a bad habit.  He’s energetic, blatantly passionate and has a creative itch he’s always trying to scratch. Most of all Caleb loves Jesus deeply, and really wants other people to find out how great Jesus is.  

Deanna Kytonen is warm, intuitive, artistic, and loves really sad folk music. She is a strategic thinker and a good listener. Deanna loves scripture and leads scripture discussions with an openness that always leads to the heart of the passage. Her deepest passion is to follow Jesus.

Their daughter Marigold is 1 year old, a committed dancer, and an aspiring potty trainer.  Clementine is 4 and knows all the lyrics to here favorite song: Homeward Bound by Paul Siman. How hip.

as for the Credentials
