Meet Our Staff

Pastor Gary Froseth

Interim Pastor

During my 35 years of ministry I have used countless continuing education opportunities to train myself to be an agent of growth and change in congregations. In my two years of retirement, I have been preaching nearly every week in churches — from Medford to Marion — who are all in the call process. It has allowed me to experience the wonderful diversity of our church.
