Our pastors are men and women who have responded to the call of God and the invitation of the elders to guide, direct, and shepherd the men, women, youth, and children of PBC. Each pastor has a specific area of ministry that they invest themselves in. However, there is much overlap and mutual support in the work of teaching, counseling, and praying for the whole church. The centrality of scripture and the clear, accurate teaching of the Word of God is of high importance.
There is much that is challenging in following Christ and there is much joy and celebration as well. Our pastors each consider it a great blessing to participate in the full sweep of the life of this church. Please contact any one of them with any questions about their ministry.
I've been at PBC for the last 23 years and have been an elder for the last ten, as well as a pastor for the last five. My wife, Brigitte, and I have three grown children and two grandchildren.
West coast born and raised, I and my lovely wife Sarah currently live in Mountain View where we are trying to tend a garden. I love books, music, and good food.
High School Pastor
I have been a youth pastor since 2003 and have been the high school pastor at PBC since 2005. I have a gorgeous wife, Allison, a hilarious baby, Noah, a massive tortoise, Eleazar, and a chihuahua, Harley. Oh, and I love Mountain Dew, but who doesn't?
My husband & I became followers of Jesus through the ministry of PBC
30yrs ago. We raised two sons at PBC, who are now grown and great friends.
I have pastored at PBC for 14yrs. I love to ride my horse, read, & play with my dogs Beau & Buddy.
Gratefully, I am here to make my life an offering; to hopefully be a blessing to my family, friends, and neighbors. To be true to myself as God created me, to view this life as a miracle, to learn and grow, to lovingly share with others as I am able.
Pastor of Counselling
I love Jesus, trust His Word, and cherish my family. Our two children, their spouses, and two grandchildren each gift our lives. The Lord has been most gracious to us.
