Jayson Turner

Pastor of Discipleship

Jayson Turner has lived most of his life in the Seattle-area, attending the University of Washington, then completing his M.Div. at Western Seminary in Portland, Oregon. Jayson has labored as a pastor for 30 years in a variety of roles with his wife Julie, and seven children by their side. What you will quickly discover about Jay is the best thing about him, beyond his Savior, is most certainly his family.

Jay has a passion for the Word and seeing men and women experience real JOY in knowing and walking with Jesus – the good shepherd. And when he is not preaching or discipling, you will find him driving people around our city as an ‘Uber-pastor.’ We are called to be ambassadors and fishers of men. And this is where Jay likes to fish. So, as we strive to walk in COURAGE as salt & light, may the stories that are posted be a source of encouragement in this stead!

In August of 2019 the Turners began a new chapter in the life of their family by packing up their belongings and moving to Spokane. Driven by a sense that God had ministry He was preparing for them in a new place, they took a step of FAITH not knowing what this would look like. Well, now they do! And they feel blessed to call 4th Memorial Church their new church home. Jay serves in a part-time capacity as pastor of discipleship. He is incredibly thankful to serve alongside a remarkable kind & humble team of leaders that love Jesus. For real. JOY!
