Meet the Staff




Senior Pastor 


It has been my joy to serve in Christian ministry since 1985. It has been my privilege to serve as the Senior Pastor of Dishman Baptist Church since 2001. Prior to coming to Dishman I served as the Senior Pastor of the First Southern Baptist Church in Fort Scott, Kansas. Previous to that I served as an Associate Pastor in two churches in Missouri. I also served as the Administrator of a Christian School in Missouri.

My wife Patti and I love calling Spokane home. We know this is where God has called us and planted us. The Pacific Northwest is an amazing mission field.

My passion in ministry is to study and preach the Word of God. My mission is to equip the saints to do the work of the ministry. Working together there is so much we can accomplish.

God has many great days of ministry ahead at Dishman Baptist Church. I look forward to being part of it. Blessings…

Pastor of Discipleship


God brought Tricia and I to Dishman in 2004 as newlyweds. In the years we have been here God has blessed us with four great children and many wonderful friends.
God has grown me from only being  served by the church to being a committed servant to the church. He has transformed my life while here and this has grown a huge desire to pass what I have gained to others. This is why I am passionate about growing our Life Groups.
I have seen God grow so many people through the care, love, and encouragement that take place in our Life Groups. I hope you will take the chance, visit and see where God may take you.

Administrative Assistant

I was born and raised here in Spokane, WA. I have been attending Dishman for many years. DBC is where I met my Husband Kyle. We have been happily married since 2014.  I love Jesus more than anything! I love serving here at DBC, not only in the office but in Children’s Ministry as well!  Spending time with family and friends is by far my favorite thing to do. I also love to camp and be in the beautiful outdoors.  Summer and Fall are my favorite seasons of the year and Christmas is my favorite holiday.

Youth Leader


I have a beautiful wife of 10 years and counting and two beautiful daughters. I accepted Jesus into my heart in early 2012. I did a believers baptism April 22, 2012. I started helping out with the youth late 2011 and slowly started feeling that working with the youth is where God was calling me. Since working with the Dishman youth it gave me the confidence to go back to college. I am now a student at Grand Canyon University going for my BA in Elementary Education – planning on graduating in 2019.
