Senior Pastor: Dan Bonney (top left)
After growing up in the Dominican Republic, Pastor Dan attended college and seminary in the States. Following marriage to Paula, he returned to the Dominican Republic and lived there for 14 years. With their sons, Christopher and Jordan, they came to Spokane Valley in August of 2003.
Pastor Dan writes, "One of my strongest convictions is that the church should be a loving and caring family; a safe place where we are encouraged to grow in our Christian faith. Church should be a healthy connection; not only to God, but also to each other and to our community. At OCF this is our goal. We invite you to join us."
Director of Family Ministries: Philip Amene
Philip and Melody are former missionaries with Youth With A Mission (YWAM) - they have a big heart for young people, the less privileged, and the body of Christ. Philip was the former youth pastor of Jesus Is Lord Project Mercy Ministry located in Nigeria that ran a big orphanage where his wife worked as the secretary. They have been blessed with two children, daughter called Jasmine and a son called Philip, Jr.
Philip writes, “Having worked with orphans for over a decade I have developed a burden for anyone disconnected from a loving family or community. My desire is to see all God’s children have a healthy environment to grow in and experience the love of God.
