Category: About Us
Seattle Open Door Church is a multi-ethnic, cross-cultural church. We have individualized church services in a variety of languages: English, Korean, Samoan, and what we call "Recovery" (Community of Hope is a church service specifically for those struggling or overcoming addictions).
Because of all the various people groups represented in our church you will find we are a church that truly has it's doors open to anyone and everyone.
Come just as you are, no 'masks' required.

In regards to our English congregation our worship style is contemporary with a few hymns at times. Our church service is from 11:00am-12:30pm. Our Senior Pastor, Richard D. Dover, is a dynamic preacher and teacher. He has been involved in ministry in a variety of capacities (Youth Pastor, Jail/Prison Ministry, Street/Evangelism Ministry, Outreach Pastor, Community Development Pastor) since 1980. Pastor Richard is also the Executive Director of Fairhaven House (a faith-based clean & sober housing program) and the Television Host of There is Hope TV. Pastor Rich has a burden for souls that drives all that he does. He also has a passion to see individuals walk in the gifts and callings of God.
