Pastor Charles Short (Pastor Chip) was born in Hawaii while his father was stationed at Schofield Barracks. In his early childhood years he traveled to many places, but grew up mostly in Colorado Springs. He gave his life to Christ in his 3rd grade summer at a tent revival meeting, and eventually surrendered to ministry after moving to Phoenix for College. He has started churches in California and New York. Then returned to Arizona to pastor in Bisbee for five years. He came to this church on Father’s Day of 2000.
Craig Mintonye came to know Christ at this church. Shortly after Pastor Chip came to be pastor here Craig stepped into the role of youth leader. He is bi-vocational but has earned the hearts of the teenagers.
Karen Stout has been a member of this church for a very long time. Earlier this year when a previous faithful servant stepped down from being the churches administrative assistant, she transitioned into that role.
