Pastor Murphy earned his Pastoral Diploma upon graduating from the Open Door Bible Institute, and holds a Master’s in Biblical Studies and a Doctorate of Ministry from Open Bible College International. He served as an Associate Pastor at Open Door under the leadership of Dr. Ken Blue for seven years, prior to accepting the position of Senior Pastor in October of 2008. Pastor Murphy grew up in the Harbour Pointe community, located in beautiful Mukilteo. He presently resides with his family in Lynnwood. Aside from the ministry, Pastor enjoys golfing, fly fishing, and spending time with his wife and children. His favorite verse is Romans 1:16: “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.” It is Pastor Murphy’s passion that through Open Door Baptist Church, people will be saved, grow spiritually and serve the Lord.

Pastor Andrew Poole
Youth Pastor of Open Door Baptist Church
Pastor Andrew Poole was saved at the age of five while attending Sunday school at the First Baptist Church of Hammond, IN, and had the privilege of being involved in the ministries there before moving to the Seattle area as a teenager for a short time. While here, he developed relationships within the youth ministry at Open Door that would continue to have a major influence for years to come. Since returning to the region as an adult, the ministries of Open Door have had a key impact on the direction of his life. It was while serving together at Open Door that Andrew met his wife, Elizabeth, who was also reached as a teenager through the Open Door Youth ministry. He is a graduate of the Open Door Bible Institute with a degree in Pastoral Studies. Andrew has been extensively involved in music programs for most of his life, and both Andrew and Elizabeth have worked with youth for several years. They reside in Lynnwood with their three sons.
