Jillian Leavitt Vetter
Interim Director of Missions
and Community Outreach
I've been attending Bethany since fall 2008, and I joined the pastoral staff in June 2012.
My parents, brother, and I are originally from Arizona, but a lot of my growing-up years were spent in Germany. My family moved there when my parents got jobs teaching at a boarding school for missionary kids. They just moved back to the states in fall 2013.
Growing up in Germany gave me an unquenchable desire to travel, to learn, and to reconcile diverse people to one another and to God. When I moved to Seattle for university, my love for exploration and God's creation grew (not to mention my love of coffee and cooking!).
