PASTOR JONATHAN WALKER

“THE TORCHBEARER”    

Jonathan Walker is the Lead Pastor of Church on the Rock. He and his wife Kitri have experienced the life-changing impact of Jesus’ love in their own lives and are compelled to love and serve others in response. They consider it one of life’s greatest privileges to extend that same love and offer of transformation to others. Jonathan first moved to Alaska over twenty-five years ago and, to put it mildly, fell in love with this place and its people. Over the years, the Walkers have taught at Alaska Bible Institute, hosted conferences for parents and teens throughout the state, served as youth pastors and most recently planted and pastored Church on the Rock in Homer, AK. They and their four amazing children are honored to call the Mat-Su Valley home and to lead the passionate and gifted team of people at Church on The Rock!

 PASTOR JUAMPA MARTINEZ

“THE ENFORCER”    

Pastor Juan “Juampa” Martinez Pastor Juan “Juampa” Martinez is part of the Central Leadership Team at COTR. Juampa was born and raised in Colombia, moving to the U.S. when he was sixteen years old. He and his wife Rachel met and fell in love in the subways of New York City while attending college and graduate school. They have been married since 2005 and have three wonderful girls. They have had the privilege of serving as Youth and Lead pastors in Long Island, New York, as well as working for World Vision. In 2013, they traded life in the NYC urban jungle for life in the Last Frontier, not once looking back. Juampa is an Ironman athlete, who enjoys the outdoors with his wife and family. They are always up for a good adventure!

 PASTOR Luke Epperson

“THE FIXER”    

Pastor Luke Epperson is part of the Central Leadership Team at COTR. He loves hiking mountains with his wife Cindy and their three energetic kids, who currently have no fear of heights. At home, you will find him surrounded by books, tools, and nearly-finished projects. Through the years, he has participated in worship ministry, youth ministry, missions, board governance, leadership training, and teaching at Alaska Bible Institute. Having spent most of his life attending church, Luke loves helping people discover that they were created for a life of courage and significance, rather than a life of simply following traditions. He is particularly good at organizing ideas and particularly bad at organizing his desk.

 PASTOR Daulton Morock

“THE REVERENT”    

Daulton Morock is our Wasilla Campus Pastor. Daulton and his wife Maggie have been in ministry together since 1997, and have five amazing kids: Brietta, Chloe, Isaiah, Ayden, and Elias. After seventeen years of youth ministry and two years developing Life Groups and classes here at Church on the Rock, Daulton stepped into the campus pastor role at our Wasilla Campus. The Morock family shares a love for missions, music, good movies, family time, and food. They are passionate about seeing every Christian connected to God, to other believers and in ministry to the communities around us.

 PASTOR Chris Miller

“THE GIANT SLAYER”    

Chris Miller is our Palmer Campus Pastor. Chris and Laurie have three decades of full time ministry experience. They are passionate about reaching people for God and encouraging them to develop their full potential in Christ. They both lead a very active and healthy lifestyle and also enjoy watching a good movie with a bowl of popcorn together. They have two daughters, Carrie and Robin, and five grandchildren.

 PASTOR John Tuohy

“THE ADMIRAL”    

John Tuohy is our Talkeetna Campus Pastor. John and Beth met in the military where John served until God radically transformed their lives and called them into ministry. Having experienced the overwhelming love and grace of God, John and Beth have a passion for seeing broken people find their hope and strength in Jesus, usually with a healthy dose of humor involved! John and Beth have two wonderful daughters and love to experience everything Alaska has to offer, often from behind either a rifle or a fly rod.

 PASTOR MIKE MICHAUD

“THE DOC”    

Pastor Mike Michaud is our Knik campus pastor. Mike and Jenna met at Nyack College in New York. Mike studied Pastoral Ministries and Missions and Jenna studied Missions and Counseling. They married in 2000 and have 4 children. In 2007, Mike felt called to go back to school to finish his education, getting his Physician Assistant degree to have practical skills for short or long-term missions opportunities. They moved to Alaska in 2014, moving to work at Southcentral Foundation and plugged into Church on the Rock Wasilla. Jenna served in Children's Ministry for over a year when they were called to pray through planting the Knik Campus. The Knik Campus officially launched in April of 2017 and Mike and Jenna are passionate about serving their community, which meets at Redington Jr/Sr High. They can often be found at the coffee hut at the top of the hill in Settlers Bay getting their Americanos. Mike continues to serve in a bi-vocational role as pastor and as a PA-C at the local urgent care.
