Meet Our Pastor and His Wife

Heath and Hannah LynnHeath and Hannah Lynn

Pastor Heath Lynn was born in Virginia and was raised on Army bases in Germany and the United States. His family eventually moved to Spanaway, where his dad retired from the Army while stationed at Fort Lewis. Heath originally attended Elk Plain Community Church as a youth in 1988. He graduated from nearby Bethel High School (where he met his wife Hannah) in 1991. The two attended Eastern Washington University, marrying in 1993 and graduating in 1996. Heath worked as a Software Engineer in the Seattle area for 14 years. During this time he sensed God's call to return to Pierce County and later to Elk Plain Community Church. He is a graduate of Faith Evangelical Seminary in Tacoma.

Heath and Hannah have four children: James, Samuel, Sarah, and Jeremiah. Hannah is known for her tender caring heart. She enjoys ministering to other women and being a support person in the church. She also is a big part of our Preschool and Kindergarten, where she is our Kindergarten teacher.

Pastor Heath’s vision for ministry involves energetically making known what God has revealed to us in the Bible, and applying it to daily life.  He is passionately committed to evangelism and discipleship, is committed to being transparent and real, and to sharing life with a church of like-minded people.
