interbay neighborhood in the spotlight

The Interbay neighborhood is in the spotlight – again.  A front page article appeared in the Seattle PI today: Interbay in Transition – From ‘No Man’s Land’ to Urban Village.  On Saturday, I posted an entry about the changes in the neighborhood and some of our older and newer neighbors:

We’ve had the following businesses in the area:  QFC, Starbucks, Pagliacci, Red Mill Burgers, Interbay Golf Course, and a few other small businesses.  Recently, the following folks have moved in:  Denali Fitness, Pop Multimedia, Dusty Strings, and the Omni Group.  Even Whole Foods is moving into the neighborhood.  And what would a neighorhood be without a Sex Club.  

It will be exciting to see how this neighborhood changes. Quest Church and Q Cafe [a separate non-profit/non-religious cafe started by Quest] will get to have a prominent role in the change as we’re right in the middle of the Interbay neighborhood. Currently, there is only ONE resident living in Interbay.  No joke.  And the current plan could create approximately 1400 new apartments and condos.  Here’s a map of the Interbay Neighborhood and the area of proposed changes [#3 is Quest Church].

Quest Church is briefly talked about in the article but there are couple great pictures of both the church and cafe.  Minhee, my wife, is the lady right next to the wall.  I’m glad she wasn’t yawning in the picture.

    I would REALLY like to see Quest plan to re-develop a multi-use, multi story facility/community. I see retail on the ground floor, office and sanctuary space next and residential on the upper floors.

    I was so excited to see the write up on Interbay and Quest in the paper yesterday. We get free copies at school so I usually pick one up and when I started reading the front page I was really amazed. I am really proud that quest is a community church and not a christian clique like so many churches get pulled into. I know it takes intention to avoid this and appreciate all the intentional efforts put forth by our pastors! Thank you all so much!

One Day’s Wages

My Instagram

Father - daughters bonding (and freezing) time at the Seahawks game. Grateful to the Panthers organization for the tickets. Now, go Hawks. Pound the Panthers. The family that karaokes together stays together. #ChoFamilyKPopFamily Family time in one of my favorite cities in the world - especially when the exchange rate is so favorable. Thank you, Vancouver, for being such a great refuge for our souls for the past 20 years. #QuestVancouver It's the day after...that day.
Be grateful. Again.
We woke up. We're alive.
Breathing. Dreaming.
Pursuing. Embodying. Loving.

It's never that perfect or easy but that we get to try to do these things is reason enough to be grateful to the One who gives us life.

Yes. Be grateful.
That you, Jesus.
#PreachingToMyself This is what real life looks like after a crazy couple weeks. Grateful for this woman. I love her. She's gonna scream at me for posting this pic. #ThoseSocksThough Grateful for the opportunity to encourage 2500 youth leaders & pastors at the @youthspecialties conference in Cincinnati, Ohio. Had prayed for wisdom to encourage leaders and courage to navigate a word for leaders post election about empathy and compassion for the unseen, marginalized, and those experiencing real fear.

Also, what a joy to have my church's youth pastor, @cobycagle, also here teaching. Some years ago, I was a youth pastor for several years in California, Korea, NY, and NJ. They were meaningful years but filled with challenges and loneliness. Sometimes, I felt unseen and insignificant - in comparison to "real" adult ministry. As a lead pastor now, I want to make sure I don't make those mistakes of overlooking our youth and children's ministry and their volunteers and staff. 
Pastor Coby, Pastor Katey, Pam, Jalle, and Jasmin: We see you. We appreciate you. We are grateful for your presence and leadership at Quest and beyond. Thank you and all of our amazing volunteers
