Bruce is a native Oregonian, having grown up on the Oregon Coast. He and his wife Leslie joined our fellowship in 1991 and Bruce joined the eldership team in 2003. After a career in computer programming, Bruce returned to the construction industry as a General Contractor. In his free time you might find Bruce enjoying some “woods therapy,” adding to his vast knowledge of Oregon’s flora and fauna. Bruce’s passion is for intercession through the prophetic and encouraging the body through exhortation. He unapologetically worships God with abandon.
Growing up in Yamhill County, Ken spent a good deal of his life making a living through the logging industry in his father’s business. After a stint as a building contractor, Ken recently returned to the woods to his first love, logging. You won’t find many people with more of a love and a passion for the body of Christ than Ken. He loves to encourage people to find their calling in God and leads our Saturday night corporate prayer time. Radically sold out for Jesus, you will find him infectious in his zeal for the Lord. He rejoined the eldership for the second time in 2011. Ken loves to minister with his wife, Diane, in team ministry.
