Greg Daulton is our Lead Pastor and has been since 2007. He and his wife became believers in 1985 and he has been leading churches in Washington and Idaho since 1990. He holds a B.A. in Pastoral Ministries from Northwest University and has authored one book, Godsick, and is working on several others.
He loves teaching, history, playing basketball and soccer, reading and board games. He could eat salmon three times a day for the rest of his life, and he still thinks Petra is cool. And yes … he thinks Captain America is the greatest superhero (you can try to debate him, but it won’t do you any good).
Zack Cash is our Youth & Executive Pastor. He and his wife Jessica have been married for 21 years and have four kids; Tyler, Emma, Megan, and Ava. If it is outdoors, sports or coffee … they are there! The Cash family has been a part of MRCC since 1998 and have been on staff since 2011. Zack has a BA from Central Washington University and is an ordained minister with the Assemblies of God.
Dave Yoder is our Community Life Pastor. He was born in San Jose, Costa Rica and grew up with parents who dedicated their lives to pastoring and missions with the Mennonite church. He graduated from college in 1985 with a BS degree in Health and Physical education. Dave developed a passion for teaching skiing during college. Dave served on the board for MRCC and has pursued a passion for small groups and relationships for many years. “I’m not sure exactly when it happened, but somewhere along my path, I fell in love with my church family. It became so much more than just my church! and just people.” It is my deepest desire to foster a sense of community, where no one ever lacks for acceptance, compassion, love and belonging.
Weston Buck is our Worship Pastor. He loves expressing God’s power and love in various creative ways, but especially with music. He leads worship most weeks at MRCC. He believes worship is a lifestyle, and music is a bonus. He and his wife Stacie were born and raised in Reno, NV. They have been married since 2012 and love their dog (Brandy) and cat (Benjamin). Weston & Stacie joined our team in 2018. They enjoy music, games, nature and "all things Disney."
Allison Aaby is our Children's Pastor. Allison and her husband, David, have been a part of the family MRCC family since 2015, with their three children (Kiley, Carson, and Tyler). They love being together in the great outdoors; camping, hiking, swimming, inner-tubing on grandma’s boat, picking berries, and riding bikes. They welcome opportunities to share in these experiences with your family as well. Allison has an Undergraduate Degree in Sports and Exercise Science from WWU, a Master’s Degree in Elementary Education from EWU, and is Licensed through the Assemblies of God.

Janae is currently taking steps through Global University to obtain Certification & License to be a Children’s Pastor
Jim Lunde is our Administrator Jim and his wife Chris and their family have called MRCC home since 2002. He has 6 children, and 6 beautiful grandchildren and enjoys fishing, hunting, golf and watching football? He has been on the MRCC staff since 2011. With over 27 years experience in the computer industry, he learned (too well) how the business world works, but he quickly learned that running a church is so much different, cause people come first. “It is about loving God and loving others, if we aren’t doing that, then why are we here? People face many challenges today, and we need to be up to those challenges.” Jim considers it an honor to be able to serve and support the people of MRCC!
Diane Rogel is our Admin Assistant. Diane and her husband Tyler married in 1993 and have four children. They have lived in Enumclaw since they married and began attending Mt. Rainier Christian Center in 2008. Diane graduated from Central Washington University with a BS in Aviation and minor in Business and Professional Communications. She has worked as a book keeper, administrator, customer service and sales; her favorite occupation has been being a mom and home schooling. In her spare time, Diane loves to hike, garden, read, and hang with family and friends. She considers it a privilege to be serving at MRCC and feels blessed everyday she spends in the office and at church.
Aileen Ellis is our Bookkeeper. Aileen is honored to presently be serving our church. Her family came to Enumclaw in 1983 and quickly made MRCC their church home. She cherishes God’s House on earth and Aileen's desire and prayer is to see Her vibrant and healthy.
Melissa Bruce is our Custodian. She was born in New York and have lived in Enumclaw for 10 years. Melissa & her husband, Ken have been married for 35 years and have 2 adult children and one granddaughter.
