Walter & Melody Channell, Elder & Deacons of Youth Ministry

Walter serves as an Elder in the church and works with a team of other appointed elders in the Seattle Church of Christ. Walter and Melody oversee the teen and preteen ministry.  They work together with our youth ministers to ensure vital communication between parents and youth workers.  The Channells were both baptized on August 2, 1986, and have been married for 24 years.  God has blessed them with three incredible children: Whitney (20), Wesley (18), and Christina (16).  They live in Silverdale on the Kitsap Peninsula, and their family loves the Northwest, having especially fallen in love with snowboarding.  Their example in the church, their commitment to the families, and their gratefulness for everything God has done in their lives make them servants worthy of imitation.
