MEET OUR TEAM
Shaun McNay, Senior Pastor
Shaun and Diane McNay have been pastoring since 1999. They are college sweethearts who met at George Fox University. They have three adult children: Zachary, Lacey, Libby and one soon to be son-in-law Corey. Shaun, the youngest of 4 brothers, grew up in Western Montana. He is a hopelessly optimistic fan of the Montana Grizzlies and the Minnesota Vikings. He enjoys baseball, golf, hiking, and reading.
Shaun believes that God is still speaking to people in our times in ways that they can understand … God knows your language! Shaun and Diane’s heartbeat for ministry is born out of the kindness they have received from God. They like to express it this way, “We are committed to lives of kindness because God used kindness to lead us to Himself. We are compelled to move outside of the four walls of the church in order to ‘get proximate’ with people who do not yet know Jesus.”
