the pathway

Our vision is to be a church with “beautiful feet” committed to walking with our city down The Pathway of life by:

Serving our community

Sharing the gospel with those we serve

Showing believers how to grow in Christ

Sending missionaries to plant new churches

“As it is written, how beautiful are the feet of those who preach the good news!”

-Romans 10:15 (ESV)


Our mission is to develop mission-minded Jesus followers in our community through intentional relationships and service.

“To open eyes that are blind, to free captives from prison…”

-Isaiah 42:7 (NIV)

the pathway leadership

Bobby and Kelli Higginbotham

Lead Pastor


God has given the Higginbothams a passion to take the gospel to the nations, and they believe He has called them to start in their own nation. God has birthed in them a love for the people of the Pacific NW that is almost indescribable. Bobby & Kelli desire to plant churches, to be catalysts for awakening and revival and to raise others up to help take the gospel to our nation and beyond.

After serving for two years as US/C-2 missionaries through the North American Mission Board with a church plant on Seattle’s eastside, the Higginbothams began planting The Pathway in Tacoma, WA. Their vision is to see God transform the greater Seattle area and pray that you might join them in that process. Bobby and Kelli are blessed with twins, Rylan and Jagen, and daughter Hazel.
