Lead Pastors

Pastor Jeff and Karyn Wells are the lead pastors of RockPoint Church. Karyn attended RockPoint (formerly Gospel Chapel) in her youth and met Jeff while attending Portland Bible College. After graduation, Jeff and Karyn moved to Edmonton, Alberta, Canada where they served in Jeff’s home church as youth pastors and associate pastors for 20 years. In 2006 they were asked to take the lead pastor position of Gospel Chapel. After much prayer and prophetic confirmation, they moved their family down to Newberg and officially stepped into the leadership role in November 2007 with great anticipation and vision for the future, beginning with the name change to RockPoint. Jeff and Karyn have four young adult children (two sons and two daughters), who are all serving the church in various capacities.

Elders

Pastor Joe is part of the eldership team, and he and Jerrie are most likely the first faces you’ll see when you walk in the front doors! They are doorkeepers in the house of the Lord and passionate evangelists who look for the lost and the lonely and bring them into the House of God. Over their years of varied ministries, many people have found not just a pastor but a mother, a father, a confidant, and a friend in Pastor Joe and Jerrie.
