Tim Brewer is first of all a husband and a father. He and his 'righteous babe' Nancy have been married for thirty years and have two wonderful kids, Rachel and Brad and has gained a wonderful son-in-law James. Tim loves the outdoors, camping, hiking, and especially Disneyland where he has been identified as "most like Goofy." His most recent accomplishment is going hunting for the first time last year during the coldest four days known to man. He did survive and no animals were injured during the undertaking of said trip.
Tim came to know Christ as a 16-year-old. The death of a childhood friend helped him discover the love and hope of Christ. Each day following Jesus is still fresh and new.

The weirdest thing Tim has ever eaten is snail.

Edwin grew up in a musical family. His father was a music pastor and his mother a piano teacher, so from an early age he learned to serve God through music. In junior high and high school, Edwin was taught that every Christian is called to be a disciple and to make disciples of Jesus. Although playing music is a passion for him, he says, "What really excites me is seeing people grow in their walk with Jesus."
The weirdest food he has ever eaten is freshly cut raw salmon while in Korea.
Kellie is originally from San Diego, California and is the youngest of four. Her parents raised her and her siblings to know who God is and how to worship Him. Kellie grew up doing musical theater along with dancing and acting in commercials. Kellie and her mother moved to Ontario, Oregon in 2010 with a little prompting from God.
In 2015, God asked Kellie to go to Ecuador for 2.5 years to plant a church with a group of other Nazarene Christians. In that amount of time, she not only became fluent in Spanish and learned how a different culture lives; but she learned how to share the gospel, to preach, and to disciple. Kellie discovered that she had to go deeper in her own faith so that she could teach others. Kellie says that this experience not only grew her relationship with God, it grew her as a person.
Kellie loves to play games, watch movies, and go to coffee with friends to catch up. Along with the goal of traveling to every state, one of her favorite things to do is try new things. Some of the things she has tried in the last few years: horseback riding, snorkeling, knitting, lawn mowing, camping, snow sledding, and visiting new places like Indiana, Canada and Brazil. What will she try next?
The weirdest food Kellie has ever eaten is Octopus.
Sue has had the privilege of working in the church office for the past 13 years...and it all started by being a volunteer! After 15 years of being a full-time child care provider in her home, she was ready to work in the world of adults. The Lord orchestrated the opportunity for her to be part of a wonderful office staff when it was most needed.
She was blessed to grow up in a pastor’s home and asked Jesus into her life at an early age. She lived in Washington, Indiana and California, met her husband at Azusa Pacific College (University), then moved to his home state of Montana and on to Wisconsin, North Dakota, Nevada and finally Idaho. Sue's grandfather was one of the first homesteaders to Deer Flat (near Caldwell) in 1905, so this area is rich in heritage for her. She and her husband have three grown children and are enjoying the time they spend with the cutest grandson ever!
Working full-time has definitely cut into the time Sue has to sew, quilt and scrapbook, her three most favorite things after being with her family. God has been so good and she is very thankful for His faithfulness.
Sue says lion is easily the weirdest food she has ever eaten.
Jeannine was born and raised in Boise, Idaho. She attended Northwest Nazarene University, where she earned a Bachelor of Science degree. Since moving to Ontario in 1995, she and her husband, Steve, have attended OFCN. When they walked in on their first Sunday, they recognized a few familiar faces from college and immediately felt at home. Balancing her desire to stay at home with her kids while still getting out where other adults roam, God opened door after door which led to her having the part-time job as bookkeeper for the church. She says her work is sometimes like solving a jigsaw puzzle, something she enjoys doing on cold winter days.
The weirdest thing Jeannine has ever eaten is squid. She won't make that mistake again.
