About Kurt

Kurt Willems

Kurt Willems (M.Div., Fresno Pacific) is the founding pastor of Pangea Communities – a movement of peace, justice, & hope. The church plant, in partnership with the Brethren in Christ Church and Urban Expression, is located in Seattle. Kurt is also a graduate student at the University of Washington focusing on early Christianity, Greco-Roman Religions, and Classical Languages. He writes for various print and online publications including his site The Pangea Blog and is also on TwitterFacebook, and Google+.

Through his Patheos blog, Kurt writes broadly on themes related to Anabaptism within post-Christendom. Inviting the church to see the beauty of a nonviolent Jesus and the subversive nature of God’s Kingdom are just some of the key issues he engages. Kurt also utilizes the blogosphere to wrestle with various other theological, missional, formational, and cultural topics. Through speaking and writing, he invites others to both know and follow the resurrected Jesus on a countercultural mission of love. His first book project is currently in the works.

Prior to planting Pangea Communities, Kurt served in various pastoral capacities, including student ministries. He and his wife Lauren (a special education teacher) have a daughter named Lydia and two puppies.
