Justin Schaeffer was born and raised in Seattle, WA in a Christian home. Always up for a challenge, Justin grew up loving and excelling at academics, sports, and art; anything that would allow him to problem solve and continually improve. Unfortunately, Justin took the talents that God had given him for granted and walked away from the Lord for several years in high school and at Western Washington University in Bellingham, WA. At age 19, Jesus used some life-rattling experiences to draw Justin back to Him and back down to Seattle. It was through this deep experience of God’s grace that Justin’s life trajectory was set for good as a servant of his King Jesus.
Justin graduated Cum Laude from the University of Washington with a Bachelor of Fine Arts with a focus on Oil Painting. In Seattle, he served on staff and as a Pastor for 7 years with one of the nations fastest growing churches and was involved in starting multi-site locations, planting new churches, building systems of care for individuals and small groups, and developing the leaders to run those ministries. He loves God’s people and has a deep passion to help people understand and rest in the beauty of the gospel.
Justin lives in the Oakhurst neighborhood with his wife Amy and their awesome boys Ben, Riley, & Jonah. They love their neighborhood and neighbors deeply and pray that God will continue to use them to share His good news in word and deed among them.
