Uriel tzec: Director of young adult ministry


Uriel Tzec has lived in Seattle since 2014.  He comes from a Latino Christian family deep in its commitment to pursuing Gods call. Uriel is passionate about speaking the truth that God's love reaches everyone no matter who you are or where you come from. We all are daughters and sons of God.  Uri is committed to looking for ways to show young adults that they are needed in the church, so that God can show through them that the church needs El reavivamiento del fuego de Dios to be awakened to injustice, systemic oppression, women's rights, immigration, etc.

Uri enjoys quiet times to himself,  in order to read and learn.  Before coming to Seattle he kind of liked coffee, but now he can't live without it.  Uri also likes good tea and enjoys to cook. One of Uri's favorite verses is 1 Thessalonians 5:18
