Missions Fest Seattle was launched on April 14, 2005. Joe McLennan (Alderwood Community Church) was elected to be Chairman for the first year. Mike Smith (Highlands Community Church) was elected to be Vice-Chairman and Master of Ceremonies for the first Missions Fest Conference.

The purpose of Missions Fest Seattle is to glorify God by raising the awareness of mission activity within Christ’s body of believers and by uniting and empowering members of local congregations to work together in obedience to the Great Commission.
