Tim Long
Lead Minister
Tim has served at Stone Creek starting in January of 2008 as a preaching, teaching, and administrative leader. Tim enjoys people and loves to connect with, and love on, people who are just trying to navigate life.
Tim worked in the private sector for 17 years before transitioning into ministry in 1999 as a Children's Minister. During Tim's 8 years dedicated to ministering to children and their families, he was also actively involved in two major building projects, and many other aspects of nurturing a young church plant to the healthy vibrant church that it is today. During this season of ministry Tim was also able to complete his Master's degree in Christian Ministry.

Tim is married to his wife Patti, and will be celebrating 35 years of marriage this year. Tim and Patti have been blessed with four children, now grown, and ten grandchildren. They have fostered several children along the way as well. Tim and Patti's four children are all married.

Tim and Patti have a favorite scripture passage, Romans 12:1-2, "So here's what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life-your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life-and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him. Don't become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You'll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it..." - The Message Paraphrase.

Don Hunt
Don's passion is making the church what God would have it be: A body devoted to winning the lost to him and nurturing those who come. Don puts his faith in the Lord to lead him, relying on God and praying for His guidance. "We need to remember that this is His doing, not ours; and continue following Him."
Don was raised in the Christian Church, as a child in Hermiston, and later as a youth in Coburg.  As a young adult, Don spent 18 years in LA learning about the world and attending no church. On Easter Sunday in 1983, Don brought his family to Beavercreek Christian Church (now Stone Creek), and has been here ever since.

He has served in various ministries - primarily finance, worship, and education - and has also served as head of the evangelism ministry for a number of years.  Don has been an elder for approximately 20 years.

Jerry Teeter
Jerry enjoys anything outdoors and spends a lot of time hunting. Jerry was employed by the Oregon Bank for four years, but later pursued carpentry. Jerry has a servant's heart and is always ready to help others when needed.
Jerry was born and raised in Oregon. He married his wife Sue in 1968 and left to attend college for 4 years in Tennessee; graduating from Milligan College in 1972. Upon returning from school he attended Central Christian Church in Portland with his family and three children. In 1984 the Teeter's began attending Beaver Creek Christian Church (now Stone Creek) to be closer to home.

Two of Jerry's favorite passages of scripture are Psalm 1:1-3 and Psalm 119:9-16.

Blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked or stand in the way of sinners or sit in the seat of mockers. But his delight is in the law of the LORD, and on his law he meditates day and night. He is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither. Whatever he does prospers.

How can a young man keep his way pure? By living according to your word. I seek you with all my heart; do not let me stray from your commands. I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you. Praise be to you, O LORD; teach me your decrees. With my lips I recount all the laws that come from your mouth. I rejoice in following your statutes as one rejoices in great riches. I meditate on your precepts and consider your ways. I delight in your decrees; I will not neglect your word.
