We are so glad that you are taking the time to find out more about who we are. The information below will give you some insight into who we are but meeting us will be even better. We live in a time where personal connection is no longer the norm and yet we still need that. God created us for relationship with Him and with each other.  We hope that you will take the time to connect with us on Sunday morning or one of our other events. You could even give us a call or send an email. We would love to meet you and hear from you.


Mike and Jami Stansberry have been serving in many different areas of ministry for about 17 years before planting Sonrise Skagit.  God invited them to plant a church in the Skagit Valley and they responded to that call with their five children.  God has given them peace, comfort, healing, and purpose through all that Jesus has done for them and they want to deliver that same good news to the people of the Skagit Valley. They believe that God’s love for people is demonstrated in the life of Jesus and His power is released when you respond to Him. God has given them vision for a Spirit-filled church to reach the lost and unchurched.  They are equipping and releasing believers into the community.  They love the people that God has called them to and have already seen God’s power released to bring restoration, hope, reconciliation, peace, and comfort to many.  They would love to meet you in person and have you join us at a worship service.

our culture

We believe that there are certain things we can control and certain things we cannot. We choose to love those around us, we choose to honor others, and we choose to be humble toward one another. We believe that when we do those things, we will learn to trust each other, grow as a team, and walk in unity together in what God has for us as a church body.

why plant another church

Expanding Our Reach

Why plant another church? I will give you the short answer to that question.  If you would like to hear more, just ask, I am glad to fill in some of the details.  Or you can go visit Our History page for a little more information.
Jami and I went through a time of resting and waiting on God after many years in full-time ministry.  We knew that God was preparing us for something new and soon God revealed that He was inviting us into planting a church with Him.  I want to make it very clear that we are privileged to be a part of this, but this is God’s work and we are simply a part of it.  We are joining Him.  Planting another church was His idea.  We seek God’s wisdom, direction, and favor in all that we do.  We expect that by His hand people will come to know Him and except the gift of a renewed life that comes from accepting Jesus as their Lord and Savior.
Sonrise Christian Center – Skagit is an extension of the health, blessing, equipping, and restoration that we have received from Sonrise Christian Center in Everett, WA.  We are not out to try to fix all the problems we have experienced in church.  We know that people are not perfect and therefore neither is the church, but we believe that God has put the church and people in place to extend His kingdom and be a blessing as we bring love, truth, new life, hope, and comfort.  We are a Spirit-filled church family bringing the Kingdom of Heaven to earth.
