Chris Williams

I am father to two boys, Barrett Duke and Levi Maverick, and husband to my lovely bride, Juliana Myrth. In what I call my previous life, I operated skilled nursing facilities throughout Southern California, and Juliana raised our boys. My Lord led my family and I to Oregon in 2015, where my wife and I discovered our callings - her to joyfully support our family, and me to begin my stay at home dad adventure. My family and I enjoy reading, exploring our forests, firearms, and wrenching on old cars. 

Kristl Williams

After a successful 30-year career with U.S. Bank and working as a Sales and Service Manager, Kristl has recently retired and is serving as Leader of Women's Ministries  at Compass Church in Bend. She and her husband, Rick, of 42 years, have two grown children and a fantastic son-in-law who helped provide an amazing first grandson.
