George is the lead pastor of Whitewater Church in Puyallup, Washington. Whitewater is in the heart of one of the most unchurched areas in all of North America, where only a small percentage of the population claim to know Christ. Whitewater consists of a group of very groovy Northwest people, of which, 60% are new to following Christ. George is married to the lovely Sarah Bedlion, and they both have lots of fun raising their daughter, Novella. George believes that creating communities of belonging leads to belief and change. He is passionate about making disciples who then make disciples and also helping other leaders pursue kingdom greatness. Along with spending time with family, his faith community, and watching the Seattle Seahawks, George loves hanging out with people who are far from Christ.
