Reverend J. Kyle Parker

Kyle Parker was born and raised in Longmont, Colorado. He studied sports medicine while working for the athletic department at Colorado State University. It was during college that Kyle became a Christian—but he initially had no interest in becoming a pastor. The idea of ministry eventually developed through a series of conversations and questions and an increasing respect for the history and place of the church.

Kyle earned a master of divinity degree from Covenant Theological Seminary in St. Louis, and worked on multiple college campuses with Reformed University Fellowship. He served as the senior pastor of Cascade Presbyterian Church in Eugene, Oregon, before coming to Spokane.

Kyle, his wife, Gretchen, and their son and daughter are excited about Spokane. They see the cultural similarities Spokane shares with the Rocky Mountain front range. “Spokane has an intersection of land, urban life, universities, and a great community increasingly aware and concerned about building a great city,” says Kyle. “All of that dovetails well with the Gospel notion of ‘shalom’—the universal flourishing we are drawn toward in our work, rest, and play.”

Dana Peterson, Worship and Music Arts

Hi, my name is Dana Peterson. I am a Spokane native who has always loved the Inland Empire for all of its natural beauty. My wife, Stefani, and I have three grown children, Ben, Rachel, and Abby. After graduating from Whitworth University in ’95, I pursued a 17 year career in education and am currently enjoying a new vocation as a Massage Practitioner. I like bird watching, bike riding, fishing (when I get the chance), and I love to sing/play songs that point me to the finished work of Christ.

Jenn Morissette, Church Secretary

I am a transplant from Houston, Texas along with my husband, Peter (a native Montanan). I've lived in several states, as well as having briefly lived in Australia and New Zealand. I've traveled to several countries and have any number of other countries I'd love to visit. I enjoy coffee, art, photography, classic movies (30's - 60's), hiking, nature, reading and especially spending time with my husband. Having worked for my church in Texas, as well as many companies over the years, I enjoy serving Christ, the church and community through the talents and gifts the Lord has given me for His glory.

PCA Logo_alt.png

The Presbyterian Church in America (PCA) is a growing denomination with over 1,450 churches and missions throughout the USA and Canada.  "Reformed" defines the theological beliefs of the PCA, which is best summarized in the churches' overtly biblically supported confession, the Westminster Confession of Faith.

The PCA's presbyterian leadership is biblical, accountable, and transparent.  Churches are governed by trained elders elected by the individual congregations.  The local churches comprise the regional presbyteries, which facilitates connectionism to the national General Assembly.  This connectionism promotes a bond of union between and among all the churches.
