Schedule a Meeting

We are looking for churches that will partner with us in prayer and financial support in our church planting work. If you would like to speak with us about taking us on for support or scheduling a meeting for us to present our ministry, please feel free to contact us. We certainly appreciate your consideration with this.


It is my privilege to recommend Bro. Adam Pearlstein to you for the work of church planting in the greater Seattle, Washington, area. Bro. Adam grew up in our church; he trusted Christ as his Savior here, went out to West Coast Baptist College, and then returned to serve the last five years in the areas of youth and outreach. The Lord is now moving him to plant Seattle Light Baptist Church in the needy Pacific Northwest. He needs our prayers and financial support. I encourage you to prayerfully partner with him in this great endeavor of taking the light of the Gospel into this darkened part of our nation!

It is with joy that I recommend to you Brother and Mrs. Adam Pearlstein as church planters to Seattle, Washington. Adam and Leanne are both graduates of West Coast Baptist College. For the past five years they have been faithfully serving at Victory Bible Baptist Church in Irmo, South Carolina, with Pastor Chris Shepler.

Brother and Mrs. Pearlstein greatly desire to reach the lost in Seattle. I whole-heartedly recommend them to you for your prayerful and financial support and trust that you will consider taking them on for support.

About Us

Adam and Leanne Pearlstein met while attending West Coast Baptist College. While there, they had the opportunity to serve together on an extension ministry helping at an inner-city church plant. Since their marriage in 2013, they have served together at Victory Bible Baptist Church in Irmo, South Carolina. Now, they look forward to following the Lord's leading in stepping out to plant Seattle Light Baptist Church.


God has commanded our light to shine in this world no matter how dark the culture may be. I'm thankful that all of the darkness in this world cannot put out one light! Every time I meet someone who is called to plant a church my heart rejoices. Another candlestick in the darkness is exactly what our country needs.

Adam and Leanne Pearlstein both graduated from West Coast Baptist College and have been faithfully serving at a local church in South Carolina since that time. Now they are ready to embark on planting a new work in Seattle, Washington. I am extremely excited about their burden to go to this needy part of the Northwest with the Gospel. I have no doubt that God will use them greatly. They have been well trained and have proceeded with much prayer and godly counsel. They are already in touch with some great pastors in the Seattle area that will be of great help to them.

I hope that you will consider supporting the Pearlsteins in this endeavor. They will represent your church well, and you will reap the dividends from the prayer and financial support that you invest. If I can answer any questions or provide any further information, please let me know. I look forward to seeing another lighthouse established for God's glory in the greater Seattle area.

Why Seattle

Seattle is an incredible city. It is a home to world champion sports teams, a hub for several massive corporations, especially in technology and aerospace industries, a habitat of gorgeous natural beauty, and a haven for coffee lovers. Yet Seattle, like much of the Pacific Northwest, is a city in much spiritual darkness. According to recent surveys, less than 39 percent of the population identify with any religion at all, with that number including all religions. Those who are truly born-again Christians are far fewer. And while there are several wonderful churches around the greater Seattle area, there is a tremendous need for Bible-believing, Gospel-preaching churches in the inner city of Seattle.

Really, this city could be described by II Corinthians 4:3-4. "But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them." And God has called us to do something about it. We go claiming the promise in the following verses: "For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus' sake. For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ."

We look forward to seeing Seattle Light Baptist Church planted in this spiritually-needy city for the furtherance of the Light of the Gospel and the glory of God!
