Open Door's History

Nearly Fifty Years of Serving the Lynnwood-Seattle Area

Open Door was founded October 5th, 1969 by Pastor Ken Blue in the living room of his small block house in Mountlake Terrace, Washington. For the first three years, the church met and worshipped in several rented buildings. By God’s grace, and the recommendation of a dear pastor friend, the church was able to purchase five acres of property on 44th Avenue, a main thoroughfare in the city of Lynnwood. Through the ministry of Open Door over the years, hundreds have accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as their Saviour, and scores have surrendered for full-time service in the ministry. God continues to bless each week as new families trust Jesus Christ at this local church. Pastor Jason Murphy accepted the position of Senior Pastor on October 5th of 2008.
