Church Staff:

Our leadership team recognizes the authority of God, and realizes that we are shepherds who serve under the Chief Shepherd, Jesus Christ. We desire to devote ourselves to prayer and to the ministry of the Word. Our passion and goal is to equip the believers for the work of the ministry until we all attain maturity in the fullness of Christ.



Kent Gravley, Lead Pastor

It has been Pastor Kent’s privilege to serve the Lord at Immanuel since 1990.  A graduate of Dallas Seminary, one of Kent’s emphasis is biblical exposition – seeking to teach the truth of Scripture as it relates to life. You’ll probably hear an illustration from football thrown in here or there.  The church generously freed up Kent to coach a number of years within the Aberdeen school district from elementary to high school, illustrating both the church’s and Kent’s commitment to our community.
His wife, Jan, a gifted teacher, has taught within the school district for many years. They have three adult children who have lived on both coasts and in the middle of our great country.  Some things Kent wants you to know:
  • His heart beats for families and children.
  • He has a great respect for the business community of Grays Harbor.
  • He has a rockin’ Christmas nutcracker collection.  (Probably a diagnosable addiction.)
  • Having studied the Bible and theology for almost 40 years, Pastor Kent is more overwhelmed with God’s love for each of us than ever before.
