Michael & Rachel Chenoweth


The Chenoweths have been pastoring youth at Bellevue Church since 2014 and are passionate about helping young people see themselves and each other as God sees them.


Michael grew up in the Eastgate area and went to Newport High School.  He graduated from Central and eventually came back to teach and coach at Newport. He spent 16 years in Children’s Ministry at Eastside Foursquare Church and nine of those years were on staff as one of the Children’s Pastors.  


Rachel grew up in the Portland area and then graduated from Northwest University with a degree in Youth Ministry.  For a few summers, during and post college, she worked at a Bible camp, after which she took a Youth Pastor position back in the Portland area.  When she relocated back to Kirkland, she spent six years volunteering with the Junior High Ministry at Eastside and then another five years in the Children’s Ministry.


Both Michael and Rachel coach youth sports in the area. Michael continues to coach wrestling at Newport HS in the Winter. Rachel coaches Track in the Spring at Bellevue Christian. They have been married since 2008, and have two wonderful boys, Kalen and Levi, and one dog
