Pat & Katrina West


Pat grew up as an atheist. After having a near death experience at 18, he went to church for the first time since he was a small child. He stepped into a relationship with Jesus that day and hasn't looked back since. Pat earned a theology degree from Portland Bible College. He was a youth pastor and associate pastor at The Promise Church in Woodland, WA before starting The Promise Church in St. Helens, OR. Pat loves sports, music and movies.


Katrina found Jesus at a conference as a teenager. She has been on several mission trips and has a heart for international missions. She earned a bachelor's degree in public affairs from Washington State University, Vancouver. Katrina has worked for over a decade in public service and loves using her skills to serve the community.


Pat and Katrina met while attending Clark Community College and became good friends. Years later, they got married and now have two kids. The West family enjoys taking family trips to Disneyland together.
