Pastors & Staff

  • Althea Washington, EXECUTIVE Pastor

    Althea was born and raised in Madison, WI. As an avid Badger fan and student she studied business and psychology in preparation for a career in Human Resources. Driven to succeed, she chased promotions in several Midwest states until settling down in Milwaukee. Yet even while climbing the corporate ladder she longed for a vocation truer to her heart. Her prayers were answered when she heard the call from God and accepted His call into full-time ministry. Her heart’s desire is that every person would find their self-worth in the unique calling that God has for their individual life. In her free time, Althea’s always up for an adventure -  whether it’s leading a weekly book club in jail, completing a 60 mile walk in the hills of San Fran, or trying to convince at least one of her friends to attend a country music concert with her (still no takers..!). Althea feels absolutely blessed to be a part of TCC.
