Our Lead Pastors

Hi there! We are Drew and Emma Davies!  We have the three cutest kids in the land Georgia, Jack, and Bennett Brave. We have lived in the beautiful USA for just over 10 years after moving from Brisbane, Australia (Yes, those are Aussie accents you hear us using!).  
Married for 18 years, as a couple we have always known we were called to build the church.  We love big, laugh loud, serve passionately, and lead relationally from a place of authenticity - all in response to our own lives being transformed by Jesus. Our sweet spot in life is helping others get connected to God, the Church and each other as well as creating opportunities for people to grow and be empowered to use their God-given gifts.

Having done ministry for the last 20 years, including pioneering a location plant for Awaken Church San Diego as campus pastors that grew to 1800 members after just 5 years - we are entering this season of church-planting knowing that we are called by God to ‘do it again’ and build a real, fun and powerful church that inspires lives to be transformed by Jesus, but this time as lead pastors.  We relocated our young family from California to the Eastside of Seattle to plant Hope Village in March 2020 and have been loving getting to know the beautiful PNW and connecting with its incredible people.
We firmly believe Seattle’s best days are ahead and can't wait to join what God is already doing here and see this magnificent city won for Jesus as lost people encounter the hope of the world through the local church.

We can't wait to meet you!
Drew & Emma Davies
