Pastors & Staff

John Foreman 

Head Pastor

It has been my privilege to serve the people of Adventure for 30 years. What a joy it has been to baptize the children of children I baptized! My pastimes include playing drums, riding my Harley, and holding babies in the church lobby! 

C.J. Young

Associate Pastor

While I love being outdoors, hiking, reading, writing, and camping with my family (I’ve been blessed with a beautiful wife Jennifer, three rambunctious boys Jack, Henry and Calvin and most recently our fourth child (and only daughter) Joanna Grace) at my core I’m just a dime-a-dozen disciple trying desperately to pay attention to God’s divine work in the everyday moments of our lives because I believe that knowing Christ’s character and seeing His movements in our daily lives draws us all into organic worship of Him. 

Karen Eckland

Director of Student Ministries & Pastoral Care

My name’s Karen Eckland. I’m the Director of Student Ministries here at Adventure of Faith. I definitely have the best job here, working with families, and people of all ages! When I’m not here at Adventure, you’ll most likely find me on an adventure, as I’m always in search of one! You can usually find me fishing, paddle boarding, kayaking, hiking, singing or exploring of some sort! And these always involve people of some sort. Looking forward to meeting you if I haven’t already!

Callie Williamson

Director of Children's Ministries

For as long as I can remember, working with kids has been a passion of mine.  I worked as a special education teacher for 7 years before stepping into my new role as Director of Children’s Ministry here at Adventure of Faith.  The Navy brought my family to Washington from Indiana in 2012, and we’ve fallen in love with the Pacific Northwest.  God has blessed me with a fun and adventurous family (my husband, Cory and our sons, Silas and Isaac).  I’m excited to be here at Adventure with all of you, chasing Jesus and striving to be more like Him!

First Impressions

I lead two important volunteer teams at Adventure of Faith on Sundays. The Connection Team includes morning ushers, door greeters, and the Welcome Center volunteers. The Hospitality Team serves in the Café and kitchen to make your Sunday extra pleasant. I rally the Adventure troops for the bi-annual church Clean Up day and also organize the annual drop-off center here in November for Operation Christmas Child. Adventure is an amazing place and I feel blessed to serve on staff.
When not at church, I spend time with my new graduate (Ally) and my Running Start teenager (Isabella), my hubby and our multitude of pets. I enjoy all types of organizing, eating my husband's kitchen creations, listening to Ally's music, watching Bella's equestrian vaulting and cuddling with our multitude of pets.

Worship Lead

My family moved to Port Orchard in 2001, and Adventure of Faith has been an important community for my faith journey ever since. I am blessed to be able to work with an awesome team leading musical worship and praising God on Sunday mornings. During the week I am a middle school band and choir teacher. I love spending time with my husband Zac and our two kids, being outside, going to concerts, reading, and learning new board games.

Colleen Fillingim

Director of Adventureland Christian Preschool

Working with kids and walking alongside parents as they navigate life with preschoolers is something I am passionate about!  Eleven years ago my husband and I decided to attend Adventure of Faith Church because God’s truth was taught, and our children felt loved and safe.  Today the same thing is true, although our kids are now teenagers.  I am so excited to be working on staff as the preschool director because I love God, love this church, and I get to use my many years of experience in the education field to equip and encourage others!
