Jim has also served in prison ministry, a suicide/runaway hotline, missions, youth programs, a Sunday school teacher and administrator, deacon, elder, men’s ministries leader, ski chaplain and more.

Jim grew up with an alcoholic father who, to continue in his addiction, sacrificed family, jobs, food and ultimately himself.

Since committing his life to Jesus in 1977, God has used his past to transform Jim into a Godly husband, dad, pastor and chaplain. If you would like to hear more of Jim’s testimony, just ask him.

Jim enjoys all types of outdoor activities where he appreciates and admires God’s creation. He’s been married to his wife DeeAnn for more than 30 years and have two children, Jeremy and Sara.

God has used Brit in many roles, including youth leader, Sunday school worker, worship leader, elder, short-term missionary and administrator. He worked as an engineer for forty years, where he traveled the world. As an adventure junkie, God used his travels and gifts to serve in missions in dozens of foreign countries.

Jane Barnhart (Office Servant)

Jane was born in Denver, Colorado, and has lived on the Georgetown Divide since 1969. A Christian since her early twenties, she came to the realization of what it meant for Jesus Christ to be not only her Savior but her Lord, and in 2002 she fully dedicated her life to His service. In 1990 she married her strapping husband Jeff and moved to Garden Valley, where they share a small ranch with four goats and five furry felines. Her son Joseph was born in 1998, and no mom could be more proud or delighted.
