Our Staff

Sean Avery


Greetings! I am a Washington native who recently moved to Alaska after four years in Dubuque, Iowa where I attended Wartburg Theological Seminary. My wife Becky and our dogs, Ivy and Ole, love the outdoor adventures Alaska offers. We also enjoy the opera and travelling abroad. Before I decided to follow the Spirit's call to become a pastor, I worked as a Police Dispatcher and Reserve Sheriff's Deputy in Washington State.
