Meet our Staff

Steve  & Malora Forrey

Steve | Interim Pastor

Our names are Steve and Malora Forrey. I am honored to be serving as your interim pastor. Our main goals are to pour hope and encouragement into your hearts, work alongside your amazing staff and church leaders, and assist in the process of discovering God’s will for your next lead pastor. We feel that we are becoming a part of the fabric of this wonderful church family.
We have served in ministry for 43 years in Southern Idaho, Eastern Washington, the Seattle area, and now in Chelan. I’m currently serving as an Elder in the Northwest Ministry Network, which means that I’m a pastor to the pastors. 
 Malora is currently the CEO of the Pregnancy Resource Clinic in Everett. We have enjoyed 47 wonderful years of marriage together.
We are blessed with three children and five brilliant grandchildren. I love fishing and gardening and Malora enjoys quilting, travel and, of course, we both love spending time with our grandkids!

Nick  & Amaris Longmire

Nick | Executive Pastor
Amaris  | Executive Assistant 

Our names are Nick and Amaris Longmire and we are your Executive Pastor and
Executive Assistant at Lake Chelan Bible Church. We moved from Western Washington in 2018 to be a part of the church plant that is now Lake Chelan Bible Church.
As the Executive Pastor, my role is to aid in shepherding the congregation, preaching part time on Sunday mornings, managing staff, facilities, youth and community engagement and relations.
As the Executive Assistant, Amaris' role is to organize and plan church events, take on various administrative tasks, help lead the youth ministry, lead women’s events within the church and engage with community outreach.

Before my time as an Executive Pastor at Lake Chelan Bible Church I worked for a
church in Maple Valley Washington in youth ministry for 18 years. After getting married to Amaris in 2009 she began assisting me in youth ministry. We have 3 kids, Kasen, Mckinley and Eisley and our dog Ellie.
I am connected to the Chelan school district as a coach and sub bus driver. Amaris also coaches in the district. We enjoy coaching and rooting on our kids in athletics as well. On our off time we enjoy going on walks with a cup of coffee in our hand, camping and boating on Lake Chelan.

AJ  & Annick Rounds 

Annick | Children's Ministry Director

My name is Annick, and I am the Children's Ministry Director. My family moved back to Chelan in 2018, and we started attending what is now Lake Chelan Bible Church. I assumed the role of Children's Ministry Director in 2020. I am passionate about sharing the stories from the Bible and laying the foundations of faith for the children that come to our church. My prayer is that every child who enters our church, not only learns about Jesus, but also develops a personal relationship with Him. My mission is to create an environment that resonates with Matthew 19:14, where Jesus instructs his disciples to 'Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.'
I am happily married to AJ, and together, we are blessed with three amazing children. On Sunday mornings, you'll find AJ at the church entrance, wearing a warm smile and a cowboy hat, welcoming everyone. God has instilled in AJ a profound passion for family worship. He is dedicated to being the spiritual leader in our home, witnessing firsthand the transformative impact that Family Worship has had on our lives.
We enjoy going camping as a family and getting out into the woods.  I, along with the kids, especially enjoy spending time in the water – whether it's at the lake or having fun at Slidewaters. 

Mac Hailey   Potts

 Mac and Hailey  | Worship Leaders

Our names are Mac and Hailey and we are your Worship Directors at Lake Chelan Bible Church. We moved from South West Washington to Chelan in the spring of 2020 and found our church home here just after. We joined the worship team and accepted our role on staff in 2021. Together, we schedule the worship team, manage song selection, create arrangements, and organize music for worship nights and Sunday Services.
Our mission at Lake Chelan Bible Church is to create a culture of congregational worship that unites our church body in praise, prayer, and thanksgiving with words that prophesy the Word of God and proclaim the Gospel.
We both have musical backgrounds; Mac is a professional musician and Hailey is a piano teacher. Having grown up in the church, we each joined worship teams at a young age. Hailey received extensive training in worship leadership through Salvation Army programs as a teen and young adult, while Mac has experience directing music ensembles and bands.
We’ve made Chelan our home and have settled in downtown. We have 3 daughters, Aria, Siena, and Talia. When we aren’t working or homeschooling, you’ll find Mac sunbathing, Hailey tending her garden, or strolling the town as a family.
