Pastoral Staff

Our Pastoral Staff seeks to serve the church family in every way possible.  Please feel free to contact them for questions in their respective spheres of ministry.



Shawn Newberry, Senior Pastor

Email / stnewberry@gmail.com

Phone / 360-953-1831


Shawn is a graduate of Liberty University and Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary.  He married his bride, Joanna, at Southwest Hills Baptist Church in 1996.  He has been in full-time ministry since 1998 and has served at Camp Bighorn in Montana, The Evangelical Free Church of Pullman (WA) as the Youth Pastor, and at Glisan Street Baptist Church in Portland as the Senior Pastor.


Shawn and Joanna have four children and spend most of their free time at their sporting events or practices.  Shawn loves the outdoors, and loves fishing, backpacking and hunting.  It is not uncommon to find him with his nose in a book, either.


Shawn loves the Lord and preaches verse-by-verse through the Scriptures.
