After months of prayer, discernment and several visits to many communities in the Pacific Northwest, we, Fr. David and Debbie, were led by the Holy Spirit to Sequim to plant a new Anglican congregation. We developed a strategic plan, which was received and approved by our bishop. He anointed us and sent us on our mission. We arrived in Sequim on April 1, 2019. After only a few weeks in Sequim, Fr. David met a small group of Anglicans from a previous congregation that disbanded in 2002 following the death of their priest. They had been praying ever since that God would send a new Anglican priest to Sequim. With the help of this small group and several other folks, a thriving new Anglican congregation rooted in mission, compassion and the love of Christ was formed. We called it "The Heart of Jesus Church" because we love sharing compassion and mercy from the sacred heart of Jesus. We began meeting and worshiping in Fr. David and Debbie’s home, which we quickly outgrew. Now we meet in the sanctuary of the SDA Church at 30 Sanford Lane in Sequim.
