About Us

Senior Staff

Rick Thiessen - Senior Pastor

Rick grew up as the third of four – a farmer’s son, in the Canadian mid-west, in a very churched upbringing, now an unending source of sermon material. His first real surrender to Christ as forgiver and leader came at a camp when he was 15, which lead to a passion for getting this good news out to as many as possible.

Bible college followed, (now Ambrose University College) and that’s where he met is lovely wife, Johnna. They moved to Johnna’s home state to serve in youth ministry and creative arts at a church in Arlington, WA. When that church went through a series of transitions, the irresistible pull to start a church in Marysville that was crazy about people who don’t go to church, was planted in their hearts. That was 1995. So with their two children, Joren and Jadan (ages 3 and 1 at the time) and 15 courageous souls, AC3 was born.

Dan Hazen - Executive Pastor

Dan's life appears to be a confused one: A hodge podge of interests from playing the drums to sustainable agriculture, to 7th century Anglo Saxon monasticism; 20 years with AC3, 25 years with his wife Brenda and a lifetime in the Puget Sound area, plus a short attention spa...he also really likes the outdoors.
