Our Team


Care Engagement Coordinator

Before joining Big Table, North lived with his wife and daughter in Papua New Guinea for almost four years, where he did sociolinguistic research for Wycliffe Bible Translators. Now stateside, he and his family strive to live a life of hospitality and stewardship. Currently working toward a Master of Arts in Global Leadership from Fuller Seminary, he is passionate about connecting the needs of those in crisis with the relationships that can transform their lives for the better.

North grew up in the Pacific Northwest and loves hiking and exploring the outdoors. In his spare time, he is a singer/songwriter, artist, and board game designer, and a self-professed sociolinguistics nerd. If food is his love language (which it is), then chocolate covered meat is like a first kiss, and blackberry barbecue ribs are like wedding vows.
