My name is Semal, but most everyone calls me Sam.

I moved around a lot as a child, first in California and then Washington, when I moved up here with my mother at the ripe old age of 7.  I continued to move around until my sophomore year in highschool when I attended Mariner Highschool.

I graduated from highschool early and jumped into the Marine Corps when I went to bootcamp at 18.

Fast forward a few years when I accepted the Lord at the tender age of 32.  For more on My Testimony . . .coming soon

Pastor Kathy Jo Kahn - Worship Evangelism PastorRev. Kathy Jo Kahn

Senior Pastor

Phone: (425)308-3652

My name is Kathryn and I was born in Mt. Vernon, WA.

I started playing piano at the age of 5 and continued until I was 17.

I was involved with Stage Band, Marching Band, Wind Ensemble & Honor Band in high school. I even played the tenor sax and the bassoon. Music was always a part of my life.
My Father was my hero musically. He was a professional musician who played trumpet, organ and piano. He played nearly every day and I loved to play for him. Upon his death, I was 15 years old, I lost all interest in music and stopped playing for several years.
It wasn't until I accepted Jesus Christ as my personal Lord and Savior & was saved in March 2002 at the ripe old age of 32, that I seriously considered playing for people again. I had performed and competed in Band and Piano as a child and was so paranoid of my mistakes that I couldn't enjoy playing anymore.
As a child I played a lot of music, but my heart was really to sing. I never really had the opportunity to explore my voice until 3 months after my conversion, I spent some time with our church's worship team and discovered that I had a voice and a natural ear for harmony.
After some coaxing I began to play piano and sing with that group. As for my writing, that didn't start until my husband was deployed to Kuwait in 2003. While he was gone, God comforted my grieving heart by placing a song upon my heart that seemed to bring me great peace and a began a passion for songwriting.
Realizing that I couldn't take my piano everywhere, I taught myself a little guitar so that I could play for the Worthy Music Christian Talent Show where "Gift of Love" was picked as a top 10 finalist.
At the time all I could do was keep a basic strum pattern and try to sing along with a few of my friends from the worship team who blessed me by helping me perform the song. As of March 2013, I have over 60 songs completed and now working on a CD and wait for the Lord to create opportunities to play for others.

Blessings to you all,

Kathryn Kahn
