OUR STAFF

  • MATT COLLINS Lead Pastor (Interim)

    matt@compassbend.com

    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.

  • KELLEY JONES Associate Pastor

    kelley@compassbend.com

    Kelley and his wife Kathy are excited to be back at Compass. They have lived in Bend for over 20 years and have three grown kids and six grand-kids. Kelley brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to Compass as a former Lead Pastor and Youth Pastor. His love for people and God's Word, along with his "front porch style of teaching" is a great combination. On a quiet summer day you might find him on a lake with his fly rod inviting fish to join him. 

  • 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 (yes, before the movie). 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 on a mountain somewhere or on his mountain bike. 

  • LEXI WALKER Youth Pastor

    lexi@compassbend.com

    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.  

  • SARAH STACY Musical Worship Leader

    sarah@compassbend.com


    Sarah grew up in Southern Oregon and has always been big into sports, music, and Jesus! She has a huge collection of board games and yard games, and may be a TINY bit competitive as she takes her competition down (but, always tries to play nicely). Sarah likes to have fun and laugh, but also enjoys going deep in meaningful conversations with good friends. She loves hiking, biking, snow skiing, and most other outdoor activities. Sarah began leading worship as a high school student and feels blessed and excited to be able to serve in this role at Compass. Her desire is for the church to understand the fun and freedom that can come through praise and worship, and that God uses it to move mightily in our lives! May the joy of the Lord be your strength, oh yeah!

    Born in Grants Pass and graduating from Crescent Valley High School in Corvallis, Hillary knew that she wanted to live in the land of Sunshine that is Bend.

Hillary and her husband Matt have lived in Oregon since 2009 and hope to never leaves except for a week or so in the middle of winter to get some warmth and sun. Community is really important to Hillary and she feels that Core Groups are an essential part of building great communities.

    A native Oregonian, growing up and spending most of my life in Portland Oregon before retiring to Bend in 2015. Doug asked the Lord into my life one evening in January 1986. At 33 years of age he felt he was finally ready to humble enough to let somebody else direct his life. Doug feels the Lord has been patient  and has allowed him to grow spiritually at the perfect pace. Doug has been blessed that God sent me to wonderful churches on my spiritual journey.

  • Heather Wieber

    Heather loves to be silly and weird.  She even finds herself talking in strange accents. Her favorite movies are Nacho Libre and What About Bob?;  And, she can fly fish all day!  But one thing she could do all day is hang out with family and friends. She is faithful about prayer until that prayer or need is met.  Heather is compelled to teach and raise the next generation to have a Biblical Christian Worldview while helping in missions. Her hope is as people increase their knowledge of Christian worldview thinking, it will translate into deeper personal relationships with the Lord and cultivate the necessity to impact the surrounding community and world.

  • Kent Wieber (Chair)

    Although born in Montana, Kent is a true Oregonian, living here for over 34 years. He attended college in Salem and found Oregon so beautiful, he decided to stay. He's been a teacher and coach for 28 years, 25 of those right here in Central Oregon. Some of his passions include fishing, golf, pickle ball and travel. Reading is also really important to him and his favorite authors are Francis Shaeffer, CS Lewis, Chuck Colson, Ravi Zacharias and David Noebel. Knowing that Jesus Christ came into the world to save us from eternal separation from God, sharing the Christian Worldview is his spiritual passion and drives him to a 24/7 faith that parades everything he does.

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.
