Lark Gleckman, Care Ministry Director
work: 360-671-9500

I have been married for 21 years to my amazing husband, Dan. We have two children Emma (15) and Hazel (13). I consider myself from Ventura, California but have actually lived many places including Tennessee (where I was born), Arkansas, California, Texas, and Washington. I love Bellingham and have lived here the past 11 years. Northlake has been my home church since then.

I love getting to use the talents and heart that God has given me at Northlake. My life like many of yours has had some real heartaches and challenges. I love that God gives me the opportunity to use those experiences to help me relate to others. My parents and their reliance and strength in God gave me the foundation and desire to live my life for him.

Dream for Northlake: That as a community we can show others around us God’s love and individually make God our number 1 so that he has the opportunity to mold us into who we have the potential to be. Caring for others the way he intends for us to could truly make this world a better place and give nonbelievers the desire to believe in our amazing God.
