Some key folks we're connected to...

Soma Family of Churches

In 2015, Soma Federal Way was sent out to plant a new church by Soma Tacoma, the first Soma church. Over the years, churches have multiplied and been added to this larger Soma family - dozens of churches across the US and around the world. We make disciples, strengthen one another and plant churches of Missional Communities towards gospel saturation.

Bridge of Hope

The Bridge of Hope takes a holistic approach to sharing the love and hope of Jesus by planting churches, building and operating schools, as well as providing clean water and medical assistance to people in Sierra Leone. Several of us have taken trips and are sponsoring kid's educations. As a whole church, we've funded a sanitation station, wells and more. Jeff Wall, one of our elders, regularly coaches and trains leaders in six churches in Sierra Leone.


Saturate seeks to be a catalyst for the gospel movement happening in North America and beyond. Many Soma folks help lead Saturate, choosing kingdom wins over egos, logos, and silos by uniting churches, organizations, and denominations for the vision of seeing gospel saturation.

We Love Our City

We Love our City is a partnership of organizations, families and individuals joining together to see Federal Way transformed through serving and sharing God's love in tangible ways. All around the city, Soma regularly helps shovel, scrub, rake, repair, paint and more to love our city.

One Church

Believing that there is truly one church in Federal Way - Jesus' church. One Church is a collective of churches saturating and lighting up the city of Federal Way and the Puget Sound with the gospel of Jesus. Soma participates in events like a joint Good Friday service, partners in prayer working toward 24/7 prayer for our city, and more.
