The Where... The Who... The What

Where are we?

Compass is co-located with the Boys & Girls Club in downtown Bend... across from the library.  We meet every Sunday at 9:30am and have programs for all ages.  This Sunday just happens to be the perfect Sunday for you to visit us!  We can't wait to meet you!


500 NW Wall Street, Bend, OR 97701

Who are we?

We're a bunch of people from different backgrounds and church experiences (or no church experience at all),

relentlessly pursuing God and His perfect ways.  Our pastors and volunteer leaders feel privileged

to support and serve our Compass family and our ministries.  Just click on their name to contact them.  

  • DREW PRICE  Lead Pastor

    Drew is the founding and teaching pastor at Compass. After a successful twenty year career in the corporate world, Drew followed God's call into full-time ministry. Besides his leadership role at Compass, Drew trains pastors and speaks at conferences around the world. He and his wife, Kathy, have three amazing daughters and two fantastic son-in-laws.  Drew is a big sports fan who enjoys football, basketball, golf, tennis, hiking and mountain biking. 

  • TRUETT SHILLING  Family Ministries Pastor

    Truett oversees our kids & teen ministries (ages nursery to 12th grade) and equips and encourages those parents. His love for Jesus, kids, worship and fun is rarely matched. He grew up in Arkansas and settled in Colorado where he married his wonderful wife Ruth and they have a crazy cool daughter named Elsa. Truett earned his degree in Elementary Education from Colorado Christian University. You can find Truett on his off days in the mountains or on the trails, hiking or mountain biking. 

  • BILL BUCKINGHAM  Creative Arts Pastor

    Bill leads our music, tech, and digital media ministries. He graduated from Washington State University with degrees in Business Administration and Music Performance. He has a heart to foster authentic worship in the local church, and to teach the Word of God through creative expression. Bill and his wife Abbie have performed music together in venues all over the west coast. They love to travel, visit the ocean, try new food, take in a concert, get their daily coffee, and take their dog Josie on adventures.

  • JASON BOURNE  Discipleship Pastor

    Jason ensures that we all know our born identity in Christ.  He wants us to know who we are, and why it seems like we're being attacked all the time.

What are we?

We're a family... people who care about each other and live life together and share common beliefs.  Our simple mission is to be "beautiful feet".  That comes straight from the Bible. Both Isaiah 52:7 and Romans 10:15 say, "Beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news."   The fact is, everything we do is Bible-directed and geared toward sharing the good news of Jesus Christ --- with our words and actions.
