About KIROS Seattle

KIROS Seattle was founded in 2004 by Thomas and Charity Osborn, along with many other faithful team members. The team replicated the Bellevue KIROS experience in Seattle and has been supporting Seattle-based believers in business ever since. The Seattle KIROS chapter is currently led by Kristen Thornton, who took on the role of Chapter Director in 2018.

The Seattle chapter, since inception has had a strong partnership with SPU’s School of Business And Economics, and in recent years with the SPU Center for Integrity in Business. There have been a wide variety of speakers including CEOs, COOs, Senior Partners, entrepreneurs, and others.

All guest speakers are selected and guided to provide their perspective on how we integrate our faith and our work to encourage, equip and transform our work. The Seattle chapter meets at 415 Westlake, a venue that is central to the thriving business community of South Lake Union and downtown.

If you have any questions or would like to learn more about the Seattle Chapter, please contact the KIROS Administrator at info@kiros.org.
