TYLER GORSLINE, Lead pastor

“I helped start A Seattle Church in 2015 as the co-founding pastor. Since then I have served through preaching regularly and leading ASC's focus on discipleship and leadership development within the context of community. I love our city and think our best days are ahead of us in the 206. I live in North Seattle with my wife, Kim and our 3 girls Miriam (“Miri”), Evangeline (“Evie”), and Arielle (“Ari”). When I find free time in the chaos of 3 kids under the age of five, I love to read, drink amazing coffee, travel to new places, and root for the Portland Trail Blazers… Yes, I know its a sensitive topic in Seattle :) #BringBackOurSonics.”

Ilze Gideons, worship & Operations Director

I am a full-time missionary from Stellenbosch, South Africa. In 15 years of vocational ministry experience, In my unique gifting, I have been a pioneer who has helped plant 8 churches, including 7 with Every Nation and 1 with Hillsong South Africa. Some of my key strengths are Cultural Intelligence Consulting, Leadership Development, Worship/Music Ministry and building sustainable teams. In all, I always keep “Legacy” in in the forefront of my mind. No matter where in the world I get to be, people encounter God through me. Thousands have been impacted directly through my mission and ministry and hundreds baptized. At the core of my being, I believe in making disciples of all nations, and this is why I moved to New York City from South Africa, and now to lead at ASC in our tech city and global hub in South Lake Union, Seattle, WA. These are some of the most culturally and generationally diverse places on earth, where I believe there is more daily opportunity to teach a new disciple the ways of Jesus.

Ali Gosselin, Kids Coordinator

“I joined the ASC Leadership Team at the start of 2019.  I lead our Kids Ministry and provide support to families and volunteers at ASC as they help kids to experience Jesus’ love and grace, and learn God’s story in their life.  I live in North Seattle, after recently moving from Burlington, VT where I went to college (University of Vermont), I finished as a mountain guide with YoungLife’s Beyond Malibu where I had the great privilege of helping to facilitate encounters with Christ in the wilderness of British Columbia. I love when relationships are formed by learning together experientially and it’s a joy to create an environment where kids can explore, discover, use their imagination, and feel the freedom of being fully alive.”
