Meet Pastor Sarah

Sarah grew up in a few different places (Arizona, Michigan and then finally Forest Grove, Oregon) and after loving college in Southern California somehow found herself back in the Northwest to be a youth director on the east side of Portland. Although Sarah’s educational background is as an elementary teacher, Sarah has been involved with youth ministry for quite a few years and is grateful for awkward conversations with students, games of capture the flag, and the opportunity to meet kids where they are (entering into their world through the things they are passionate about). Sarah is excited for the opportunity to work with 0-18 and families at Cascade.

“I am driven by kids and students, and believe they are our future, worthy to loved and known, and want to help them realize how much God loves them as well as how exciting it is to love God and grow in a relationship with Him.”

Sarah and her husband Zach met while volunteering for Young Life. They currently live in Milwaukie, OR and love anything active, spending time with friends, and laughing.
