vona church

The mission of Vona Church is to reach the Ballard community with the message of hope in Jesus Christ through the evangelization of the lost, discipleship of believers, and ministry to the poor and helpless members of our community. Their vision is to become a perpetual center of hope within the Ballard community, to spread our message of hope locally, nationally, and globally through the reproduction of local churches and cooperation with national and international missionaries.

Ballard is directly northwest of downtown Seattle, just minutes away from the heart of it all. Seattle Magazine listed Ballard as “the prime area for young families.” It offers a vital waterfront, parks, year-round Sunday market for seasonal produce & crafts, and some of the city’s last affordable housing.

vona church leadership

Wil and Stacy Mayfield

Lead Pastor



In 2007 the Mayfields loaded everything that they could fit into a mid-size U-Haul truck and moved to Washington with plans to plant a church in the Ballard neighborhood of Seattle. Little did Pastor Wil know that during their first five years in Washington he would serve as an interim Pastor for one congregation, Small Group Pastor for another and be mobilized and deployed by the U.S. Army as a medic. Looking back, Wil and his wife Stacy can see how God was better preparing and equipping them for the work that He has graciously called them to. In July 2012, exactly five years after leaving Texas, they launched Vona Church in Seattle, WA.
