Family Pastor
Julie joined the Harvest staff in June 2015 as the Children’s Pastor.  Julie grew up in the beautiful island town of Anacortes, Washington.  In 1993 she moved to Eugene to attend Northwest Christian University, graduating in 1997.  She spent several years as a youth pastor before taking time off to be at home with her little ones, who are now teenagers.  Most recently, she has been working as a preschool teacher.
Julie is married to Benton, and they have three children- Wyatt, Rachel, and Sophie.  When she is not trying to keep up with her three teenagers, Julie enjoys getting away to the family cabin at the coast, Starbucks coffee, a good book, and cheering on the Seattle Seahawks!
