Dr. Tim Goble, Senior Pastor

Pastor Tim was privileged to be raised by Christian parents in northern Indiana.  He went on to do his undergraduate work at Biola University receiving a bachelors degree in Business Administration and Bible.  After a successful stint in the business world, he sensed God’s call to full time Christian service at a missions conference.  For the next ten years God graciously used him to reach many teens for Christ at an independent Bible church in northern Indiana where he met his dear wife Jane, a graduate of Moody Bible Institute.  Ministering to teens included camping ministries an three youth mission crusades to South America, while pursuing his graduate degree at Moody Bible Graduate School.  In the meantime, God blessed Pastor Tim and Jane with three wonderful boys.

Driven by a passion to reach unchurched families, Pastor Tim accepted the call to a small fellowship in the warm and friendly community of Colville, Washington.  In the midst of parenting and pastoring, he completed his Doctorate in Ministry to further equip him in serving the Lord and others.  His visionary passion to “reach the world for Christ” has become the congregation’s purpose, with hundreds coming to Christ over the past 29 years.  Many of these changed lives in turn, are reaching their peers for Christ through discipleship.  To accommodate growth in the congregation, God used Tim’s engineering background to orchestrate the design for the original church structure and the expansion 15 years later.  Tim’s three boys are now married and serving the Lord as pastors.  The Goble family is a testimony to the fact that “when you come to Jesus he will ask more of you than you originally planned to give, but He always gives you infinitely more than you dared to dream!”

Pastor Daniel Goble, Youth Pastor

Born and raised in Colville, Daniel headed to Liberty University in Lynchburg, VA, where he spent the next 5 years and graduated with a Bachelors degree in Religion.  During his undergraduate work, he completed internships at Grace Evangelical Free Church, working with the Junior High ministries.  Daniel returned to Colville in 2009 to become the full time Youth Pastor.  Daniel is continuing in his education, wrapping up a Master of Divinity degree through Liberty University along with future plans for a Doctor of Ministry degree with an emphasis in family counseling.  Daniel said, “Many people ask me why I am spending so much time working on school and furthering my education and I simply tell them that I want to be approved as a workman that does not need to be ashamed accurately handling the word of truth (2 Timothy 2:15).  I am also looking forward to teaching as an online professor for grad students on the side of doing my pastoral duties.”

Daniel has a strong testimony.  Saved at an early age, he strayed away from God as a young adult and living through consequences, Daniel is first to give the redeeming glory to God as he’s been “brought back to where he needed to be.”  Reaching our world for Christ is Daniel’s goal and he believes strongly in both evangelism and discipleship.

Pastor Chad Butorac, Assistant/Children’s Pastor

Chad was raised outside of the small community of Northport where he attended school. He went to Eastern Washington University where he received his Bachelor of Science and Bachelor of Arts in Education in Biology. While there, he met his lovely wife, Julie whom he married in 2011. After Julie finished school, they taught in public school for a year in Umatilla Oregon. They were redirected back to Northport and through some connections, started attending Grace. Although it was never their intention to be involved in organized ministry, God opened the door for Julie to work in the office as support staff and for Chad to become the Children’s pastor. He is now getting his Master of Arts in Theological Studies through Liberty University, overseeing the Children’s ministry, and the 18-30 ministry called “Generation Why?” Chad is thankful for the supportive family here at Grace and for the opportunity to serve.
