STAFF


  • Shane Freese - lead pastor

    Sally and I both accepted Christ at a young age and have been involved in the church ever since. We met while at New Tribes Mission Bible School. We were married in 1994 and have continued to work on loving each other as Christ loved us. Sally is an RN working at Gonzaga University and I have been bi-vocational for most of his Pastoral ministry.


    Sally and I have 4 amazing boys; Ken, Jon, Tim, and Chris. Sally and I enjoy the outdoors, spending time with our boys and some alone time together. Sally patiently enjoys my love of cars, motorcycles, and sports.

    My passion for the Church is to be the Church God has designed us to be. To Reach the Lost with the Gospel, to Connect the members of the body in deep meaningful relationships, and to Make disciples that multiply Christ-like lives by repeating the whole process.

  • Travis burks - Youth & Music director

    Claire and I both became believers in 2013. We met through a Bible Study in Colville, Washington, a few years later in 2017 & got married in 2018.  We were both involved in our home churches before we came together. We stepped down from leadership for a season to pursue God as a married couple. Since then, we love to pour our hearts out to our community, family, & friends through hospitality, counsel, and many, many movie/pizza nights.  Claire served in her local church for many years; her passions include missions, children, and family. I was given opportunities to serve multiple churches and the communities since the Lord saved my life in 2013. I led and co-led Worship and Youth Events, Bible Studies, and Prayer-walks. I love reading, hiking, fishing, volleyball, videogames, and Marvel Superhero’s.
