Pastor, Head of Staff
Kevin grew up in Vancouver, Washington (which he says you always have to tell people that it is not Vancouver, BC nor is it Washington, DC). He came across the mountains to Whitworth University where he earned a B.A. in Physics and made friendships for life. After serving two years as a youth director in a church in central California, he went on to earn a Master of Divinity degree from Princeton Theological Seminary in New Jersey. Kevin was ordained in 2008 and served five years in Coulee Dam, WA before coming to OPC in 2014. Kevin and his wife, Alisa have been married 16 years and have three exuberant daughters, Hannah, Abby, and Ellie. In his free time Kevin loves to play softball, find a good book and a coffee shop, walk parks and trails with his family, and cheer for Gonzaga basketball.
Ben is the strength of the staff at OPC and has been faithfully maintaining the buildings and grounds for over 34 years! He grew up in the Spokane Valley and has been a part of OPC his entire life. He and his wife Laurie have been married 25 years and have two children, Zachary and Grace. When he is not at the church (which is not very often!) he likes to go out fishing or driving, fixing, and checking out old cars.
I am happy to introduce myself to you as OPC’s office secretary! My husband, daughters and I have been attending OPC since October 2014. I worked as a mediator for Spokane District and Superior Courts for over 10 years and became secretary at OPC in April 2015. Please feel free to stop by the office Monday through Thursday from 9 to 1 to ask any questions or meet me in person!

Family Connections Coordinator
My name is Jenny Pitts and I am the Family Connections Coordinator at OPC. My family moved to Spokane in Jan 2019. I have been married to my husband Joseph for 23 years. We have 4 amazing children. Our family is from West Sacramento, Ca where I owned my own childcare/preschool for 17 years. Prior to working for OPC, I worked for Central Valley School District, where I provide supervision before, after school and during lunch time. During my free time I enjoy family time, walking and scenic drives. I look forward to working with the families of OPC. Please let me know if I can be of any assistance.
