In October of 1994, Pastor Dave Miller, Associate Pastor Sandi Grace
and a team from Silver Lake Chapel, ventured to plant what was at
that time known as Word of Grace church. They pioneered and
pastored the church for 14 years.
In the spring of 2008, Pastor Dave Miller was succeeded by Pastors Joseph
and Christy Fehlen. During this time, the name was changed from Word of
Grace to South Everett Foursquare (SE4).
The Fehlen’s pastored the church until the Spring of 2011 and
Pastors Josh and Michelle Ferguson were installed. Josh and Michelle remained
the pastors of SE4 until December of 2014.
Mill Creek Foursquare, under the pastoral leadership of Chris Manginelli, has had an active
presence on Casino Road for many years, building relationships with families and the local schools
in partnership with Hand In Hand and Casino Road Kids Ministries. In 2015, it was determined that
South Everett Foursquare would become a congregation of Mill Creek Foursquare.
Pastor Don Cain served at the interim pastor and brought a group of families from Mill Creek
to join the South Everett congregation. During that interim seasons, the two congregations were able
to build relationship and trust with one another.
In September of 2015, Ben and Alicia Ramos came from Mill Creek and pastored the congregation for
three years before moving to pastor the Foursquare Church in Idaho Falls.
On July 8, Pastor Chris Peppler, and his wife Katrina, were installed as the new pastors.
The Peppler Family attended Mill Creek Foursquare while Chris was on the
Executive Leadership Team at Seattle's Union Gospel Mission in 2017.
Chris had previously served on the pastoral team at Eastside Foursquare Church in Bothell since 2002.
South Everett functions as a congregation of Mill Creek Foursquare Church; we are one church in multiple congregations. While South Everett is financially self-sustaining, each of our congregations share one church council, along with a unified mission and vision. The Executive Leadership Team, comprised of leaders from each of our congregations, work together in unity to make important decisions. Pastors make visits each congregation, coordinate weekly teaching series for our services, and plan regular all-church events designed to bring the larger church together as one.
