Who we are
At Brookview we’re striving to be a community of people where love is lived. While things, like going to church regularly, reading the bible, and praying, are vital for our growth as Christians, the ultimate aim of these practices is to actually become people who are devoted to loving God and the world around us the way Jesus would. We believe that love needs to be lived out in all of our relationships and should reach outside our circle of friends and family to a hurting world. With this in mind, Brookview is reaching out to those in need overseas as well as in our own community. Our church services are designed to equip Christians for living everyday life through modern worship music and messages that challenge, inspire, educate, and prepare believers for living out their faith. Our desire is to produce an environment that is warm, inviting, and makes sense to people with little or no church background but is also challenging for people who attend regularly. Our goal is to love and accept everyone just as they are, but challenge them to grab hold of all that God desires for them!
Brookview church is made up of a collection of flawed people trying to figure out how to live the way of Jesus. We are a part of a larger church family called the Christian & Missionary Alliance. Click here for Brookview's doctrinal statement/beliefs.
In the fall of 2002, Pastor Jason, his wife, Jen, and their then two children Katelyn (3 at the time) and Cameron (2 at the time) moved from Bellingham, WA to start Brookview. The church began with three other couples in the Lynnwood area meeting in a living room and began public church services at the old Lynnwood High School, across from the Alderwood Mall, in the fall of 2003. In 2009, we moved along with the school to the new Lynnwood High School on the North Rd, and in 2015 we found our permanent home/church building in Brier, WA.
Though Brookview is filled with a wide array of volunteers who make the church run, Pastor Jason and Jen are currently the only paid staff. Jason & Jen have been married for 21 years and have three children, Kate (19), Cameron (18), and a sweet surprise they named Brooklyn (12).
