OUR STAFF

  • MATT COLLINS Interim Lead Pastor

    Growing up in Massachusetts, Matt is everything Boston.  But he upgraded significantly by marrying an Oregon girl, Hillary.  The day Matt and Hillary moved to Bend, they ended up at a Compass cookout.  This was the point when Matt realized that he didn't know the "real" Jesus.  He soon made the decision to put his life in Jesus' hands, pick up his cross and follow Him.   A few years later, Matt left his teaching job to become Compass' Youth Pastor... and remained there for 7 years before returning to Mountain View High School to teach math. Matt and Hillary have returned to Bend after spending a year in the Portland-area as an assistant principal.  They have two children--Awbrey and Avery.

  • TRUETT SHILLING Family Pastor

    Truett oversees our kids and youth ministries and he came to us in 2015.  His love for Jesus, kids and fun is rarely matched. He grew up in Arkansas and settled in Colorado where he married his wonderful wife, Ruth. They have a crazy cool daughter named Elsa. Truett earned his degree in Elementary Education from Colorado Christian University. He has done about everything in ministry and he is always ready to jump in! When he's not working (and even when he is), you can find him in the mountains or on the hiking & biking trails.

  • LORRAINE JESPERSEN Operations Director

    Lorraine is originally from England, but she has lived in the Middle East and in Mexico.  Fourteen years ago she moved to Bend and loves it.  She has three children (Emmerson, Spike & Isabel) as well as a granddaughter (Vivian).  She's quite the entrepreneur and has been involved in several business start ups, most recently opening a surgery center in Bend.  She's an avid traveler and enjoys spending summers volunteering with her daughter while exploring the world.  Lorraine is very excited to be part of the Compass team and eager to apply her talents wherever God leads.

  • LEXI WALKER Youth Pastor

    Lexi was born in Las Vegas and grew up there and in Colorado, before attending the University of Wyoming after High School. Lexi came to Compass as an intern in 2017 because of her love for building into the lives of students. There is talk that her and Truett go way back, maybe that's why she understands Arkansas?? She did such a phenomenal job, we crashed her car, threw away her suitcase, and told her that God obviously didn't want her to leave. And she was rewarded!  Yeah!  She met her husband, Brendan, and is glad to make Bend and Compass her permanent home.

OUR BELIEFS

Our culture continues to change.  Truth has become relative, or hard to find, or non-existent.  What was good yesterday is scorned today.  What was evil yesterday is celebrated today.  If this is confusing to you, you're not alone.  That's why we put our faith in a book that's over 2000 years old and hasn't changed.  The Bible reveals the irrefutable truth... past, present and future.  We read it faithfully, study it vigorously, and apply it humbly and gratefully.
