Dean is the Teaching Pastor here at First Christian Church. He married his college sweetheart Debbie in the Spring of 1981, and they have been working away at marriage since. Dean & Debbie have five adult children. Dean's passions are currently focused on the need for true spiritual leadership to be evidenced at every level of our society: in homes, in the church, and in our government.
David joined the First Christian staff in 2014. He is married to Samantha, and they welcomed their first son on New Year's Day of 2016. David's passions are soccer and spending time with kids. He has a knack for embarrassing himself on stage - but thankfully he has been blessed with a great sense a humor.
Mary Ann has been Office Manager at First Christian Church for nearly 11 years. She and her husband Rich, married since 1968, have a married daughter; and they live with her family (which includes five children) on their dairy farm. Together they have served the church in many roles in many communities, including Rich's current pastorate in Garibaldi. Mary Ann is one of our worship musicians and carries a passion for older women mentoring younger women to grow in their relationship with Jesus.
