The Reverend Emily Tanis-Likkel
Pastor Emily is an ordained United Church of Christ minister who lives in a multigenerational household in West Seattle with her spouse Brett, nineteen-year-old daughter Eva, fifteen-year-old son Day, and her parents.

She is trained in Nia, a holistic movement practice, which informs her spiritual practice of embodying Scripture. She loves collaborative ministry and co-creating experiences that liberate, challenge the status quo, engage the senses, deepen relationships, and draws us nearer to our creator. She also loves to consume novels and dance barefoot. She is currently writing a book for those on the journey of faith who wish to widen their experience of the sacred through the joy of movement. She is very much looking forward to serving as Alki UCC's new Bridge Pastor.
