Meet the team.

Our goal is to make Jesus the Main Attraction. Our leadership team strives to be humble, Spirit-led, down-to-earth people that you can have a cup of coffee or catch the game with. We want to live in and love on our surrounding communities. We value people of all ages and stages of life. We love multiculturalism and diversity. Our method is to point people to Jesus by teaching the Bible passage by passage and showing how it is relevant to all our lives today. We also foster discipleship (growth in your walk with God) through serving and spending time together in smaller group events.  Our vision is to be a life-giving community serving those in need and making Jesus the Main Attraction.

Our Staff run the day-to-day operations of the church and its ministries, while our Elder team focuses more on assisting the lead pastor in providing direction, care, and spiritual leadership for the church.

Demetrius Rogers

Pastor/Elder
Demetrius was born in San Bernardino, CA and raised by a devout single mother. At the age of 9, they moved to Auburn, WA. It was while he attended college at Washington State University in Pullman that Demetrius became a devoted follower of Christ. After finishing school he joined the campus outreach staff at his church for the next 10+ years. During that time Demetrius married his sweetheart, Audrey, and started their family. They moved to Vancouver, WA in 2008 so Demetrius could attend Western Seminary in Portland, from which he graduated in 2014 with two master’s degrees – one in Biblical & Theological Studies and the other in Expository Preaching. Demetrius then became licensed with the Assemblies of God. Next to the Bible, books, and people in general, his main loves are his family and rooting for the Seattle Seahawks.

A native Oregonian and lover of Mexican food and dipping his pizza in ranch (or dipping anything in ranch), Brendan is one of the friendliest guys you'll ever meet. His colorful past coupled with accepting Christ and the forgiveness that comes with doing so gives him a unique ability to relate with those who have walked a darker path. He is not afraid to share Jesus or pray with anyone! He loves to study God's word and share what he's learning; he is also a big C.S. Lewis fan!

Elders

Rick Bolesta

Carolyn Asbury

Rick is a natural-born teacher. Raised Catholic, he accepted Jesus as his Lord at an Assembly of God church camp in 1970 before marrying Karen in 1971. They moved to Gresham and started attending what was then called Mount Hood Christian Center in 1980, and he has been here ever since! Sadly, we lost Karen to brain disease several years ago. While attending church at “MHCC”, Rick taught at the other MHCC in town – his 40+ year career there has included serving as a Chemistry instructor, department chair of Physical Sciences, and Dean of Science. At the same time, he has spent decades teaching in the church. Rick is a devoted father and grandpa. When he’s not watching a grandkid’s sporting event or traveling the world, you can find him playing guitar, hiking, golfing, or eating bread. Or Italian food. Just don’t try to feed him broccoli. Or any other cruciferous vegetables. They are his kryptonite.
Born in Arkansas, Carolyn's family moved to Gresham by train and began attending what was then called the Gresham Assembly of God church - she has been in this same church ever since! Carolyn was blessed to be married to Jim Asbury for many years, raising children, nieces, great-nieces, and grandchildren! She lost Jim to cancer in 2006. Her children, grandchildren, and great-granddaughter are now the delight of her life. She is an avid reader and has enjoyed a myriad of professions, including Beautician, Bookkeeper, and Surgical Administrative Assistant. Carolyn has a genuine love for people and can always be counted on for a lunch out and great conversation!
