Meet Our Pastor

 

Paul & Leona Burnham

 
New transitional Pastor
 
   

Leona and I have been wonderfully blessed by the Lord and allowed to serve Him for over 30 years. We love to serve together to accomplish whatever the Lord wants done and we do whatever it takes to do so. We have been open to serving wherever God has asked us to go and are looking forward to serving here in Oak Harbor at Church On The Rock. Although the Pacific Northwest has been our home for all of our married life we love to travel and enjoy visiting all the beauty that God has created for our enjoyment.

My favorite verse is Galatians 2:20I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. Because of all that the Lord has done for me I have dedicated my life to serving Him.

My life verses are Philippians 3:12-14 – Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already arrived at my goal, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me. 13 Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, 14 I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.

My ministry verse is Colossians 1:28 – He (Jesus) is the one we proclaim, admonishing and teaching everyone with all wisdom, so that we may present everyone fully mature in Christ.
