    Van and Lori Bradeen

    Van and Lori believe in building a church by building people.  They desire to see "church" be a community of friends who walk with each other in love and accountability.


    Van is a no nonsense man's man kind of guy. Don't let his 6'4" frame scare you. He loves people and is motivated to see others come to know Jesus.  Van is an ex EWU football player who's life changed on night on his knees in his college dorm room as he cried out to Jesus.  He has walked with Jesus ever since.  He enjoys Hiking and Hunting and the great outdoors.  


    Lori met Jesus as a 7th grader at a youth camp her friend invited her to. She met Van in college and  they were married over spring break 1989.  Lori serves teaching in women's Bible studies, occasional preaching, and on the worship team.  She also works at a local hospice agency.  She loves gardening, traveling, and being with her family.
