Meet your pastors!

FIRSTNAZ is led by a team of dedicated, educated, and experienced leaders who love their church. We are presently in the process of searching for a new senior pastor, following the departure of our much loved and respected Pastor Cliff Purcell. (He is now the pastor of a church in Washington state.) We have an interim pastor, Gene Schandorff, who will lead our church during this period between senior pastors.

    Gene Schandorff is our interim pastor during this period of time where our church board is working through the process of bringing a new senior pastor to our church. He retired several years ago from his position as chaplain at Northwest Nazarene University, where he had served for 22 years. If you have questions for Gene, click here
