Seth Thomas

Lead Pastor
Pastor Seth was born and raised in Arizona and moved to Washington in January of 2022.  Ironically, he 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’re called to. One day, he desires to be actively involved in raising up local churches in some of the farthest reaches of the world as well. Revival is here and he is passionate about raising people up in their authority in Christ as sons and daughters of the King who usher God’s presence into our city on a daily basis!

Seth met Hope’s former Senior Pastor, Anthony Simmons, through our pastoral network at Two Rivers Church in Arizona. In 2021, Pastor Anthony invited Seth to pray and consider moving to Burien to lead our Youth and Young Adult Ministries. When it was clear that God was moving, 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.  God confirmed through a variety of means that He had brought Seth here for the very purpose of stepping into Anthony’s shoes.  The transition was made in July of 2022 and it has been an incredible journey of God’s faithfulness and blessing in this new season!
