Quest Church describes itself as “an urban, multi-generational, and multi-ethnic church in Seattle striving to be an incarnational presence in a postmodern and post-church culture.” Quest Church is a growing “emerging” church that thrives in community group settings around Seattle. Sophisticated social media and new media help maintain ties in the congregation and connect new people to small groups and other ministries. Follow the church on Facebook, and Twitter, or sign up for videos and podcasts.
