In 2010, a group of people with diverse hometowns, backgrounds, careers and life stages, came together with a shared desire to discover the difference Jesus makes in all of life.
We found that He loved us and we fell in love with Him too. We came to believe that the difference Jesus makes in all of life is worth advocating for in our beautiful, yet broken city.
On February 12, 2012, we started gathering together on Sundays in the Fremont neighborhood of Seattle. After being approached by other people who shared a similar desire, we started a second expression of our church in West Seattle in 2015. Soon after, a similar development occurred with a group of people in Edmonds. After much prayer, the Edmonds Expression of our church started in 2017. Towards the end of the Covid-19 shutdowns, God provided a welcome reprieve and answer to a long-time prayer for a permanent church home building for our Fremont Expression–in neighboring Wallingford! Our most recent changes have included leadership transition, and a continued push for more holistic health and transparent, gospel-saturated relationships for every person in the Hallows community, including and especially our church leaders. In 2023, this has looked like our three Hallows expressions amicably deciding to become autonomous church bodies focusing on ministering to their local communities with more intentionality, local leadership and nuance. The Hallows Church now continues exclusively through our Wallingford location, meeting and ministering to one another and the city of Seattle Sundays at 10:30 a.m. and throughout the week in Missional Communities from Shoreline to Ballard to Wallingford. What we are experiencing now is a fresh and beautiful resurgence of members leaning in, new attenders becoming part of the faith family, and leadership empowering the saints for the work of ministry.
