Doug Gunn, Elder

Tell us your thoughts on being an elder at Northside….

“The love of Jesus is alive and growing at Northside. It is a privilege to worship with and pray for everyone at Northside.  I am excited for where God is leading Northside, beginning with each person growing in Christ, and in turn, serving each other and reaching out to the community.

It humbles me to hear the Gospel proclaimed, to join in praise and prayer, to see repentance and forgiveness being active, and to celebrate people calling Christ Lord and Savior.  What fun and joy it is to share the story of Jesus with the kids upstairs in Children’s Church.

Holy Spirit, lead on.  Move through Northside and your area Churches, for the glory of God in heaven.”

Tell us about your family:

“My wife Katena and I have been married for over 25 years, and we have two children, Taylor and Olivia.  We have lived in Bothell for more than 10 years. We were married at LaurelHurst Presbyterian Church, then attended Echo Lake Community Church, before moving to Canyon Hills and finally are members here at Northside.”
