Seth Thomas

Senior Pastor and Youth/Young Adults Pastor
Seth is the Senior Pastor, as well as the Youth & Young Adults Pastor. He was born and raised in Arizona and didn’t originally intend to become a pastor. He worked and studied in a variety of industries in the marketplace before God specifically brought him across the country to step into vocational ministry. This gives him a practical approach to helping people walk out a gospel-centered life in whatever sphere of influence they are called to. One day, he desires to be actively involved in raising up local churches in some of the darkest places around the world. Revival is here and he is passionate about raising people up in their authority in Christ as sons and daughters that usher God’s Kingdom into our city on a daily basis!

Seth met Pastor Anthony through our pastoral network at Two Rivers Church in Arizona, where he was serving in their youth ministry. In 2021, Pastor Anthony invited Seth to pray and consider moving to Burien and lead our Youth and Young Adult Ministries. When it was clear that this is what God was orchestrating, Seth accepted the position and moved to Washington at the start of 2022. In the background, God clearly began calling Anthony to pursue Kingdom expansion as the Senior Pastor of Lighthouse Christian Church in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin; and God was confirming through many leaders that Seth would be the next lead pastor for Hope.
