Living in a Seattle Suburb and working in the technology industry, Mike and Heather were introduced to church planting when they began attending Common Ground Church in 2004. Mike answered the call to ministry in 2007 – moving to Dallas, Oregon to work with Ben Bauman and Dallas Church. They launched Corvallis Church in October 2011. In 2019 they renamed the church Village Christian Church.
Mike hopes that Heaven consists of being at a football game with his family, eating sushi with Heather and drink great coffee. Heather loves the arts and is gifted in singing, drama and all things creative. As a mom of 3, she is on the go but regularly takes time to read her bible while sipping coffee in the morning sun.
