Nathan Lamb - Lead Pastor

Nate arrived in Alaska from Colorado in July 2019. He and his wife, Julie, and their three daughters are excited to experience all Alaska has for them.

Brent Kirby - Family Life Pastor

Brent grew up in Palmer and Eagle River as a pastor's son. His family left Alaska when he was eight. During that time God placed in his heart a deep love for both it's land and people, and he desired to return one day. Brent finished his education and worked in hospice as a chaplain for nine years. In 2013, he returned and serves as our Family Life Pastor. He is married to Joy and they have five boys.
