Joe & Betsy Pittenger
Our Lead Pastor, Joe Pittenger, and his wife Betsy, have been in ministry for 29 years. They are graduates of Northwest University, Kirkland WA. They have lived in the Northwest since 1994 and moved to the Spokane area upon graduation in 1998. Together, they have been on staff at some great churches in the greater Spokane/Coeur d’ Alene area. God called them to plant a church in Liberty Lake, WA in 2013. Together, with a growing core group, they are “Making Much of Jesus” in this community! “Our heart is to see people encounter Jesus. In ALL of His Love, Grace, and Power! God’s love to the world is His SON! Let us make much of JESUS!” Pastor Joe
