Bread of life international fellowship

Bread of Life International Fellowship exists to connect people to God and each other. We have a passion to reach out to the diverse local and international communities around us with the Good News of Jesus Christ. We desire to be a place that embraces people from varying backgrounds and to provide a safe, welcoming community to meet people who love Christ and one another. We will reach out to the lost and build up the body through worship, fellowship, prayer, stewardship, teaching, preaching, evangelism, counseling and other activities.

We are planting in Kent, WA. Kent is the 6th largest city in Washington State, with a population of over 122,000. Located directly in between Seattle and Tacoma in the heart of the Green River Valley, Kent features breathtaking views of Mt. Rainier and the Cascade and Olympic mountains. As the 4th largest manufacturing and distribution center in the United States, it is home to REI, Oberto Sausage Co, Boeing, multiple steel manufacturers, and various national warehouses. The economic and ethnic diversity of the city is significant, with many of the over 190 languages in the greater Seattle area being found here.
