Hey everyone. My name is Terry. I’m the old guy, 61 years of age and new grandpa. Joetta and I have been married for 35 years and she is gifted at being human, listening well to people, hospitality, has incredible integrity, and is loved by all. We have been mostly in bi-vocational ministry, the last twenty years at West Seattle Naz. In 2013 I stepped out of senior pastor and serve as an associate pastor.

I love reading Tom Clancy novels, watching TV and movies (science fi mostly, also political, spy-crime types .. “Blacklist”, NCIS-all of them) and writing. I’ve recently been working on two (probably will be unpublished) books.

Finally, my greatest joy, besides Jesus (and that might be argued) is my dog, Jack, a Beagle whom everyone believes is undisciplined. He’s just a nose follower who loves life and me. That’s good enough for me.

Looking forward to connecting with you!

Lorenzo Tautua

Worship Leader


I have an endless love of singing (and food of course)! No higher schooling or musical training under my belt, just a voice to encourage the body of Christ to praise Him.

If the Holy Spirit has touched your soul to sing or strum, or play a melody, give us a little rhythm, pound out a beat -- you are welcome on this worship team anytime.

"Sing to the LORD, all the earth; proclaim his salvation day after day."

1 Chronicles 16:23

OK so we're a little random, but don't you need some of that in your life?
