John came to Seekers Church in the late 1990s.He was looking for a church community that exemplified a progressive, creative, caring way of following Christ. He became a member in 2004, and now considers Seekers his family and his home. One of the gifts Seekers has given him, he says, is a continual and strong affirmation of his creative life. He writes fiction, poetry, and music, and considers these to be central to his way of knowing God. Seekers is a place that understands creativity as praise, even when the art is thoroughly secular.
