Through our partnership with the North Coast Presbytery in Colombia, our Seattle Presbytery welcomes Cristhian Gómez as a Pastor-in-Residence this summer. Cristhian serves as the pastor of the First Presbyterian Church in Barranquilla and also teaches Christian education at the Colegio Americano and pastoral theology at Universidad Reformada. He possesses a vibrant faith that is translated powerfully into the work of equipping his congregation as they engage in acts of justice in the community, seeking always to accompany one another toward a life of flourishing. From his own story of heartache in the face of violence, he is committed to a lifelong work of reconciliation and restoration for God’s Kingdom.
Cristhian is available to meet with pastors and congregants from our Presbtery between now and August 25th. If you would like to schedule a time with Cristhian, please contact Renée Notkin, firstname.lastname@example.org or (206) 235-8346
On Wednesday evening, July 26th, you are invited to Union Church at 415 Westlake Ave N at 7 p.m. to hear Cristhian talk about the work of the church in Colombia. He will share about his involvement in the work of reconciliation in Colombia as he comes alongside displaced people as the result of a 60 year civil war. Learn how the gospel transcends cultures and borders as Cristhian shares his story of forgiveness and hope.
