I love being on a lifelong journey with God. There are so many amazing things that happen and ‘coincidences’ that God orchestrates simply because of His love for us.
The church in Prineville prayed specifically for 2 years for a ministry family. My family prayed and searched for God’s will during the same time period. Do we stay in campus ministry or move into becoming a minister of the Word? James Freie was the catalyst used by God to bring us together for such a time as this.
We moved to Prineville from Corvallis, OR where I was the campus minister at the University Christian Center for ten years. Amanda and I have been married for almost 20 years and have 3 cute, blond boys: Josiah, Jaron, and Justus. Josiah is compassionate, smart, and always full of ideas. He enjoys riding his bike, playing basketball, and football cards. Jaron is silly, and enjoys Legos and football. Justus loves to climb. When he was 2, Amanda was looking for him outside. She heard him yelling from the top of our camper, “Mommy, I climbed a tall tower,” which gave his mother a heart attack.
Amanda, is a homeschooling mom. She is a teacher for their Classical Conversation coop and enjoys helping the boys love to learn. (The first thing they picked up in Prineville was library cards.) Amanda also found bulk freeze dried food and it has helped our busy schedule so much that Amanda now sells it.
I am excited to be here in Prineville and already love the Crook County Parks and Rec. I’m a flag football and basketball coach and enjoy teaching the kids the love of sports. I also enjoy serving and walking with people through the journey of life as disciples of Jesus Christ.
One of my favorite lines of Jesus comes from John 1:35-39, “Come and see.” We invite you, like Jesus did, to come and see our church family. We would love to show you around and share coffee together.
