Imprint Church

Student Pastor



Why I Love This Opportunity

Brian Aaby

Senior Associate

First of all, I’m all about the Pacific Northwest, you’d be coming here and I’d get to be your neighbor (I live about 30 minutes from Imprint). Second, this is my second time partnering with Imprint, and I love everything they are about and how collaborative they are in their approach to ministry. This is an ideal situation for someone who loves working in team settings and desires to take a solid foundation in students and lead it to the next stage!

About This Organization

Imprint Church was launched from Northshore Community Church in Kirkland, WA, with about 50 people roughly a dozen years ago. Darren Larson is the founding pastor and continues to serve as one of the lead pastors. Though non-denominational, they are connected to the Converge Northsound Network of churches.

With nearly 600 in weekly attendance, the church is warm and welcoming, striving to be a place where hospitality translates into a community where people connect, grow, and multiply. The Sunday morning experience is “real,” with lead pastors committed to teaching God’s Word accurately and in a relatable manner. They typically preach through a book of the Bible, occasionally interspersing topical series. Worship is authentic and modern, and the congregation is diverse in age, growing with younger families.

The church has seen significant growth over the past 12 years. After three years, they hired a church planting pastor, Tom Regan, and planted a second location in Bothell after their fifth year, starting with about 100 people. Both churches were growing until COVID hit. Since the Bothell location met in a public community college, they had to move back to the original Imprint location in Woodinville, becoming one church again for a couple of years. However, in 2023, they were gifted a building in Bothell, and now both locations average nearly 300 in weekly attendance.

Imprint Church has a sizable staff and a healthy leadership team, operating collaboratively while maintaining unique identities at each location.
