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 eastside of Portland. Although Sarah’s educational background is as an elementary teacher, Sarah started working as a youth pastor after college as a “fun job”, hoping to attend as much summer camp as possible she realized her call as a pastor. Since college, she has received her MDIV from Portland Seminary and helped start Cascade. Sarah is passionate about faith experiences for all ages but specifically for kids and students, empowering and learning from generations to come.

“I am driven by kids and students, and believe they are our future, worthy to be loved and known, and want to help them realize how much God loves them and that all questions are great questions.”

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, petting puppies, and playing games.
