Eugene is the founder and lead pastor of Quest Church—an urban, multicultural, and multigenerational church in Seattle—and also the founder and executive director of Q Café—an innovative, nonprofit community cafe and music venue. Eugene and his wife Minhee are also the founders of One Day’s Wages (ODW)—”a new movement of people, stories, and actions to alleviate extreme global poverty.”
The strategy of ODW is to create a collaborative movement by integrating human relationships, social media/technology, and the power of story. ODW promotes awareness, invites simple giving (one day’s wages), and supports sustainable relief through partnership—especially with smaller organizations in developing regions. Since it launched in October 2009, ODW has been featured in the The New York Times (twice), The Seattle Times, NPR, Mashable, and numerous other media outlets.
Eugene and Minhee have been married for more than 15 years and live with their three children in Seattle.

A Must Read from Frederick Douglass
One of my heroes is Frederick Douglass. I have a list of folks whose stuff I regularly read on and read about, and Frederick Douglass is one of them. Words in today's world have grown to be an interesting sensation. I believe in the power of words via teaching, preaching, blogging, writing, etc.
A Fallen Soldier Comes Home
Last week, I had a quick 24 hour trip from Seattle to Chicago. As I was returning on Thursday night to Sea-Tac airport and eager to get back to my wife and kids from a good but exhausting trip, I was getting peeved that the de-planing process was taking such a long time. In fact, we didn't move for a bit.
