Brian Kjesbu


Randi Kjesbu

Children's Ministry Director

Brian is a fiery, Spurgeon-quoting Bible teacher who loves to get into the intentional details of Scripture (but unfortunately never has time!) Randi has a skill in teaching children and her days as a teacher have equipped her for directing and coordinating the weekly Children's Ministry teams - she even created the curriculum, so from Pre-School to 6th grade, kids will go through the entire Bible 3 times!  |  360-591-1754

Dustin Bruland

Heather Bruland

Dustin and Heather have been attending CCMonte for nearly 10 years. They have faithfully served in many different areas in the church and are highly involved in the Montesano community. Their heart for the youth and families in Montesano is contagious and their love for others is apparent in conversation and action. Every Sunday, you'll find Dustin playing football with the kids in front of the church and you'll find Heather welcoming someone new without the slightest hint of shyness or difference in treatment.  |  360-220-8772

Natalie is currently in school and pursuing nursing. We are so excited to have her on board - come say hi at our info table!


Children's Ministry Assistant

Kasie Kloempken

We are so thankful to have Kasie back in Montesano since her time in Oregon. She seamlessly filled the position as the Children's Ministry Assistant and keeps things in the classrooms running smooth. Kasie's work ethic and tenacity is second to none and, because of this, she is organizing and executing the Community Bible Camp: a city-wide, multi-church day camp for the kids in Montesano to learn about Jesus!  |  360-589-6928
