Johnny Ignacio

My name is Johnny Ignacio, saved by Grace in May 1990. I am a child of God. I have been the music leader of the church since August 2015 and have enjoyed singing with the praise team and band for God’s glorification. I am a native of Guam, an Army veteran of 20 years, retired from Weyerhaeuser Company after 15 years, and retired from Clover Park Technical College after nine years. I have been married to Stacy for 30 wonderful years. I am blessed to be a member of this loving and caring church filled with like-minded Christians who believe the Bible to be God’s inerrant Word and the saving work of Jesus Christ on the cross for the forgiveness of sins. I continuously seek to know God by studying and listening to excellent Bible-based preaching as our pastors provide and pray the Holy Spirit’s help to perform my shepherd duties for His glory. I pray God’s blessings on all, always.

Frank Emrich

My name is Pastor Frank Emrich. I have been a Pastor for almost forty years. Along with my role as a pastor, I also served for nearly 20 years in The Pacific Fire Department as a volunteer firefighter, assistant chief, and chaplain. In 2000, my wife, Wendy, and I moved into the City of Pacific, and we love our city and the people in it. We want to serve the people of the City of Pacific; however, we are able. Our church family is people from the City of Pacific and the surrounding areas. We are people who have found the most extraordinary relationship in the world is with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. We desire to learn to know God and make Him known continually. We do that through Bible teaching, praying together, singing together, serving together, and loving others and one another.
