Our Leadership

Pastor / Elder

Derek Fekkes

Derek Fekkes grew up on Camano Island, graduating from Stanwood H.S. in 2002. He has long had a heart to see the community of Stanwood and Camano Island find joy in knowing Christ.

He and his wife Anlee moved back in 2013 to begin the process of planting a new church in the area.

After receiving pastoral training and experience at Communion Church in Mount Vernon and going through a church planting assessment process with the 3Strand Network, Derek is excited to have the opportunity to weekly preach God’s Word to a growing community of people.

His passion is to help others understand, boast in, and proclaim the gospel of God’s grace in Jesus.

On another note, Derek is a complete nerd. He enjoys birdwatching, running, and reading books on theology and church history. Derek is daily grateful to be married to his beautiful wife Anlee and to be dad to Ezra, Emerson and Eliza.
