  • Arthur Diener—Student MInistry Pastor

    Email Arthur: arthur@ccfww.org

    Call Arthur: 253-394-2988

    Arthur is truly an answer to prayer, as he joined the staff at CCF in the summer of 2017 as the church prayerfully sought a leader to help shepherd the growing youth ministry. 

    He is 30 years old, married to his wife, Sarah, and has been called to serve the church as a minister of the gospel of Christ. While he and his wife are total opposites, God has knit them tightly together over the past several years of marriage, blessing them with two amazing kids: Judah (3 years old and crazy about books and animals) and Clara (2 years of dresses, owls, and expressiveness). 

    Arthur and Sarah met when he got a summer medic job at a Christian camp for kids. Her work ethic, bright nature, and love for Jesus were all it took to win his heart! They enjoy growing things, music, good food, laughing with the kids, and encouraging other parents as they all try to glorify Him more each day. 

    His call to ministry was not his idea, but God's. He pulled Arthur out of camp and into full-time ministry, showing him that is where he truly belongs. He is called and compelled to teach students of all ages that there is eternal hope in the saving grace of our God, and to train them to reach others.

  • Carol Everett—Women's MInistry Director

    Email Carol: women@ccfww.org

    Call Carol: 509-525-0895

    Carol has been a longtime member since the 1980s. God has blessed her with two wonderful daughters and five grandchildren. After 30 years in the business world, Carol retired at the end of 2013 and began serving as the bookkeeper for the church. Then, in the fall of 2014, God began moving her back toward ministry to women inside and outside of CCF.

    She enjoys spending time with family and connecting with women. In fact, you can often catch her hanging out in a local coffee shop with a sister in Christ. But most of all, Carol loves Jesus and God's Word.

  • Marcus Corder—Communication Director

    email Marcus: info@ccfww.org

    Call Marcus: 541-203-2900

    Marcus is a father of four young children with his wife, Anna—their little ones can often be seen dancing during worship music or standing with him during Sunday announcements. Marcus spent several years working in marketing and communications, and as his faith increased God made it clear that his career had been preparation for serving Him. Marcus joined the staff to handle communications in 2016. 

    But God wasn't finished; in 2017 the church sought a facilities and maintenance leader, and once again life experience—fixing up old homes—had unexpectedly prepared Marcus to serve the Lord. 

    In addition to communication and facilities at CCF, Marcus also teaches at the Christian Aid Center and still does some freelance editorial work when he's not tinkering on his house or motor scooter. Mostly, he's seeking to better understand God's calling for him and to love his family. 


At CCF, the congregation has the responsibility of affirming existing elders and/or selecting new elders, charged with the responsibility of providing leadership and shepherding care for the body.
