Brian Harpell, Lead Pastor, email@example.com
It’s hard to believe! Our family has been connected with FBC for twenty years having come from the east coast in 1988. And here’s the big deal about this: after twenty years, our entire family loves this community of God’s people and is still amazed by the exciting things God is doing. My wife, Lynne and I have been married for 30 years and in addition to our son, Scott and daughter, Amanda, we have our goldens Solomon and Beau. Among my favorite activities are dating my wife, spending time trying to stay up with my kids, playing ice hockey, serving as chaplain of our local hockey team, the Silvertips, reading and listening to: Casting Crowns, Passion, Chris Tomlin and Coldplay. A verse that has guided my life is: "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." (Philippians 4:13)
Nathan Yocum, Student Ministries Pastor, firstname.lastname@example.org
I moved to Everett in 2002 from Columbus, Ohio and love living in the Pacific Northwest. When I was 16 I felt called to be a student pastor and that calling has stayed a strong part of my life ever since. I love working with students and watch their relationship with Christ grow and shape their lives as they work through their difficult teenage years. Some of the activities I enjoy are hanging out with my amazing wife, playing with my boys Rudy and Shane, watching and following Ohio State football, coaching football, and picking flowers. A verse that has guided my journey with Christ is Philippians 2:3-4, "Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than ourselves. Each of you should not look only at your own interests but also to the interests of others."
Troy VanHorn, Adult Discipleship Pastor, email@example.com
Troy and Vic did not start out to be a ministry family. God called them into ministry in 1999. They moved their family to the Pacific Northwest to work with church planting in 2007 and joined the staff at First Baptist in 2014. Troy has a desire for the church to raise up leaders who impact their community and world with the Gospel. His life's mission is to have a heart for God and a hand for humanity. Missions are a significant part of their family life. Troy has served by training Nepalese pastors and Vic has partnered with a medical mission in Uganda. They have three kids; Conner, Kyla and Elya. The normal part of their life together is raising kids who play sports, create art and piles of laundry and dishes. They love the outdoors-skiing, hiking, watching the waves and sitting on the deck with a fire and marshmallows.
