Members Meeting

Audio from our members meeting held on May 25, 2017.

  • Darin Brill

    Darin grew up an hour north of Seattle and became a Christian at age 15 at a winter camp. Having grown up in the church, he saw the need for community-based discipleship and for the last 12 years has served in small group ministry and now helps pastor our Home Gathering leaders at Taproot. Recently he quit his long-time job at UPS to raise support and come on staff with us full-time, while pouring beer at a local bar in Burien on the side. He, his wife of 9 years, Sarah,  and their 4 energetic kids love living in Burien and serving with Taproot Church


    Jim grew up in Ellensburg, WA - a small farming and college community in Eastern Washington. He became a believer in Jesus as a UW college student in Seattle when confronted with prophecy about the imminent return of Jesus. He soon joined a great church and began serving and growing. After college he started work at Boeing, met and married his wife Janis. They have three kids that are now mature adults. Jim has been serving in Taproot Church from its earliest beginnings. After 30+ years, Jim is happily married to Janis, thankful Jesus still has him in a great church, and retired from Boeing to continue growing in leadership at Taproot Church. God is faithful. 

  • Dan Braga

    Dan grew up in a small town in Southern Idaho. He had no connection with any church or exposure to the Bible. When Jesus saved him in 1998 he’d been living a life filled with drunkenness, drugs, and demonism. After salvation, Dan met his wife Alexis, got married, and started teaching the Bible. In 2007, Dan and his family moved to Burien to begin the work that has become Taproot Church. Today, the Bragas have three children, love their community, love their church, and are honored to serve Jesus for His glory.
