Gabe Piechowicz is the Pastor for Everyone Church, a unique spiritual collective, shaped by the values of Jesus of Nazareth. He believes in being the hands and feet of God and feels called to the work of ending homelessness in our community.
Pastor Gabe believes in Everyone Village because it gives everyone a place to flourish and creates opportunities to thrive physically, mentally, emotionally, relationally, and spiritually.
Before coming to Everyone Village, Pastor Gabe worked as a logger for 15 years and then attended Bushnell University in Eugene, Oregon where he received his degree in ministry. He worked with Square One Villages to provide camp management and support and partnered with Carry it Forward to build microshelters.
Gabe is a key leader in the village and steward of community hope. He leads the Health Team and hosts Spiritual Something on Wednesday nights (see calendar for details).
