meet our staff



    Greg and Shannon Pierce were born and raised in Oklahoma. They met in college and both had a heart to be used by God to the fullest. They spent some time in Oklahoma doing college ministry and then 8 years overseas as missionaries in India and Malaysia. Greg was also the Family Pastor at a church in Iowa before moving here to Baker City.

    The Lord has blessed them with two daughters named Lani and Maggie. Greg believes that the word of God is true and reliable, completely accurate. He believes the world needs Jesus and that we are responsible for the Great Commission. Some of his hobbies include spending time in the outdoors, fishing, hunting, reading, and just hanging with his family.
