Anthony and Susan met as children, and have been together since 1995 when they were both still in high school. They have been happily married since 1999, and have two children, Zion and Kylie.
They were called into pastoral ministry in 2002, and have been serving God fervently in various capacities ever since. Some areas they have led in, and served in, are children’s, youth, college, and worship ministries, as well as being deans at an international Christian boarding school.
Anthony has served as pastor of Fellowship Church since September of 2009, and desires to see this church make an enormous impact on the Mid-Willamette Valley for Christ. He has an intense passion for evangelism, and communicating the Gospel in relevant ways through the church, to a generation who has never fully encountered the power of Christ in their lives. Anthony has a gift for powerfully teaching the Word of God in ways that anyone can understand, and desires to make sure that the message of the Gospel is central to any teaching within the church. He loves preparing, empowering, and leading the local church to do the work of the ministry within the church, and in its community.
Anthony and Susan enjoy spending time with one another, and their children, exercise, traveling, the outdoors, making new friends, and strengthening bonds with friends they are close with.
Susan enjoys crocheting, working out at the gym, baking, crafting, singing, and trying out new foods.
Anthony enjoys running, cycling, film and television (particularly sci-fi), painting, drawing, music, writing, and studying.
