YOUTH & FAMILY PASTOR
Caleb grew up in Gooding, Idaho where he lived until he graduated in 2007. It is also, where he met his wife Katie while they were still in school together. He has always been involved with the church, and early in Caleb’s life, he felt that God was calling him to be in full-time youth and children’s ministry. After high school, Caleb continued his education at Boise Bible College where he attended for four years and received a Bachelor of Science in Youth Ministry. During his time at BBC Caleb interned at the Vale Christian Church where Caleb moved to full time once he finished college. He was there for a total of four years, and Caleb was in charge of the Youth ministry and was the Head of the Education Department as well. After his ministry in Vale, Caleb moved with his family to The Dalles, Oregon where up until recently, he had been serving as the Youth and Children’s Pastor for The Dalles First Christian Church. He started with Kimberly Christian Church in December of 2016.
Caleb and Katie got married while they were both at Boise Bible College, and they graduated together in 2011. They now have two boys together, Benaiah and Jeffrey. Ben and Jeff have blessed their parents, but also, do a good job being true boys and keeping their parents on their toes.
One of Caleb’s greatest joys in Children and Youth Ministries is seeing the transformation that comes from the students when they begin to understand the love that God has for them. Not only this but seeing the students step up and start doing ministry for themselves.
Caleb’s interests include music, basketball, football, paintball, board games, video games, Mountain Dew, movies, reading, hearing great jokes and laughing, all things Marvel, and spending time with family and friends.
