About Me:

I am an associate network leadeDon Detrick 6-8-12_ppps cropped face shot Low Res 70Kr with the Northwest Ministry Network in the Seattle area with more than 300 churches and nearly 1400 ministers in our network covering Washington and North Idaho.

After spending more than 25 years in local church pastoral ministry, my current passions include ministry and strengthening the mission of the church, engaging young/emerging leaders, and coaching pastors. I love to write, and have published numerous articles and a book, Growing Disciples Organically: The Jesus Method of Spiritual Formation (Deep River Books, 2013). Education-wise, I earned a D.Min. in missional leadership at the Assemblies of God Theological Seminary, and M.A. in counseling from Luther Rice Seminary, and a B.S. in pastoral ministries from New Hope Christian College (formerly Eugene Bible College)–and I have served as an adjunct professor at Northwest University (Kirkland, WA) and The Assemblies of God Theological Seminary (Springfield, MO).

I have been married to Jodi for 40 years, and we have 3 children and 3 grandchildren. Jodi is the author of “The Jesus-Hearted Woman” a best-selling book, the former national chairperson for the Women in Ministry Network, a former columnist for the Seattle Times, and is a conference speaker and life coach.

I love spending time with Jodi and my family.  My hobbies include photography, restoring and collecting antiques, bonsai, reading, writing, and riding my Yamaha TW200 in the hills.
