Brent & Jacki Sorlien, Lead Pastors
Pastor Brent & Jacki came to Southpointe in August of 2016 after many years of ministry in the states of Oregon, Montana, and Washington. They’ve been married for 34 years. They have been blessed with three adult children and their families. One of their favorite pastimes is spending time with their three amazing grandchildren.
Pastors Brent & Jacki minister as a team. Brent serves as the Lead Pastor, and Jacki as the Worship Pastor. They graduated together from Northwest College in Kirkland, WA in 1985, and have been involved in pastoral ministry ever since. Brent went on to earn his Master’s Degree from Assemblies of God Theological Seminary in 2012.
They are excited to be at Southpointe! They believe their best days – and the best days for Southpointe – are ahead!
In their spare time (what is that??), they enjoy going on dates, hanging out with family and friends, drinking good coffee, discovering new restaurants and rooting for the Seattle Seahawks!
Kim Boyd currently serves as Associate Pastor/Business Administrator. She attended business college directly out of high school. She completed Berean courses and received her Certificate of Ministry in 1997. Her goal is to see the body equipped with the word of God and strengthened with His Spirit; as well as seeing the lost come to Christ. She longs for them to know that there is a “Wonderful” life prepared for them. Her desire is to see people pulled from the pit and directed to Christ. She deeply cares about those who are struggling and desires to see them win all of their battles.
Pastor Kim came to the Lord in 1984, here at Southpointe along with her wonderful husband Bryon. They have been married for 31 years and have both been actively serving the church since their conversion. She has three incredible children; and so far, three joyous grandchildren!
Michael Collins, Youth Pastor
Michael Collins serves as the Youth Pastor for Southpointe. He has been actively working in youth ministry for over 15 years. His passion is to see youth come to know Jesus and have a lifelong relationship with Him.

They believe that reaching students for Christ while they are in Jr. High, High School and College is key to building solid faith foundations for life.
