Youth Pastor: Sean Carpenter

Born in: Seattle, Washington

Why are you involved in this ministry: I feel called to teach and mentor our teenagers through this time in their life when they are making very important decision and choices about how the rest of their life will play out.  My goal is to make sure that they have a solid theological foundation based on correct biblical teachings to be able to build and develop their relationship with Jesus Christ on.

Spouse & Family: My wife's name is Moira Carpenter, my daughter's name is Aubrey and I have two sons, Keegan and Kyle.

Brief Background: I was a pastor's kid so I grew up in the church living primarily all over the Western half of Washington.  I went to school at both Southern Nazarene University in Oklahoma City and to Northwest Nazarene in Nampa Idaho where I studied Theology with an emphasis on applying it to Youth Ministry.  After school Moira and I got married in 2006 and were living in Olympia Washington.  We moved to Sacramento California in 2007 where Moira finished school and I did my seminary work at Fuller Theological Seminary, while working as a Youth Director at Lutheran Church of the Ascension.

Why are you involved in this ministry: I know God set this desire in my heart at a young age. I begged my Dad for a piano at age 3 and started leading worship at age 16.

We have 4 amazing Children, one Son-In-Law, one Son-In-Law to be and one beautiful Grandson that we have been blessed to call our own.

Our daughter Nadia is soon to be married to Tyler and we are more than excited to have another Son in the family!

Our son Aaron is at home with us and is a full time student at Columbia Basin College. He is a gifted musician and is studying Jazz at school and is the primary drummer at GVNaz. Last, but definitely not least, our daughter Gabrielle. Gabrielle is a Junior in high school and still living at home but this girl is a world changer. Whatever she puts her mind to, she accomplishes. She is well known as the "Child Whisperer" as she serves as a caretaker for several family's children in the area. She is a gifted musician as well, playing the piano, guitar and has a beautiful voice. She serves on the youth worship team along with the GVNaz worship team. She also assists her sister in The Coffee Shop.

Brief background: I was born and raised in Puyallup, WA and called Puyallup Nazarene my home. I have been involved in leading worship since I was in high school. I was privileged to tour Eastern Europe with Carpenter’s Tools International in 1990 and it gave me a taste of what God was doing through worship all around the world. I also was blessed to meet my future husband on this team. Upon returning from Europe I became the Worship Leader at Christ Fellowship Church in Kent, WA and was honored to serve there for 8 years. I have been involved in leading worship in several churches and events since then but have been blessed to lead Worship at GVNaz since June 2013 and serve as Executive Administrator to GVNaz since Jan 2018.
