Lead Pastor: Wayne Park
PW is constantly thinking about issues of faith, place, race and culture-making in the vast city of Houston, TX. A native of NYC, he grew up in the ethnic immigrant church, which deeply shaped his worldviews. In his early 20′s he left to the West Coast to serve as a missionary with Youth With A Mission (YWAM). During his decade in the Pacific NW, he led campus ministries at the University of Washington and Western Washington University. He was also involved in church planting with the Evangelical Covenant Church denomination. In 2010, PW joined Harvest Community Church as the Senior Pastor. He has his Master of Divinity from Regent College, Vancouver, BC and a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Parsons School of Design in NYC. He is a licensed minister and on the path to ordination with the Evangelical Covenant Church. PW’s wife Ashley keeps his universe in order. His children Austin & Zoe bring joy to his life. His Jack Russell terrier Fleur relieves all his stress. He blogs here.
