Pastor Don & Sue
Don was born in Redding California in 1953. He grew up mainly in the Redding, California, area and graduated from Central Valley High in 1971.
After a failed marriage, Don returned to California in November of 1978.
On December 13, 1978, Don gave his life to the Lord. Shortly after that he met Sue at New Life Assembly in Marysville, Ca. On Valentine’s Day 1979, they began dating and were married on October 20, 1979.
After graduating from Bible School in May of 1981 he was offered a position in Burney, California. Don and Sue moved to Burney in August of 1981. They became the Associate Pastors in charge of the Christian School for Burney Assembly of God.
In August of 1983 the Lord opened the door for them to became the Pastors of Grace Bible Church in Bieber, CA. This turned out to be a unique opportunity. Don and Sue were both saved in the Assemblies of God and the church in Beiber was not of the Pentecostal persuasion. They taught the Word of God without compromise and God blessed and changed many lives. The ministry grew and flourished under their leadership.
In June of 1989, Don and Sue followed the leading of the Lord and left Bieber moving to Cameron Park, California. It was here that they launched Solid Rock Faith Center in August of 1989. They knew they had found their home, and the place where they would reach and fulfill their destiny in God.
Solid Rock Faith Center was started in the conference room of the Super 8 Motel in Cameron Park, CA, in August of 1989. SRFC moved into their 3rd location in 1994 and has expanded to over 18,000 sq. ft. of facility. In October of 2006, they opened the Lords Gym of El Dorado County, Inc., a youth sports outreach facility. This had been a vision of SRFC since 1999.
Their son Sean is Associate Pastor, Director of our Lord's Gym and he and his wife Dana lead Rise Student Ministries. He preaches and teaches in various capacities at Solid Rock Faith Center. Most importantly, he is the proud husband of Dana Pritchard and the father of their 4 children… Jacob, Chase, Ben, and Gracelyn.
Their son Austin is married to Teresa and they are Associate Pastors at The Intersection in Gettysburg, PA. They are the proud parents to Aurora And Damaris.
Their daughter Jamie is married to Bryan Brown and they both have great careers and live near bye. They are the proud parents of Jackson and Ella…
Their son Cody graduated from Chico State and lives in Modesto. He just started his professional career… and we are proud of him and praying for his wife to be!
They are truly blessed and thankful to the Lord for His goodness in the lives of all their children and grandchildren!
Sue’s father was in the United States Air Force for 20 years. During this time Sue’s family lived in many different locations throughout the United States as well as spending four years in Germany.
Up until she was twelve years old, Sue and her brothers attended Sunday school occasionally. By attending church services, Sue gained a knowledge of God, but did not know that you must be “born again.” As a teenager Sue experimented with drugs and alcohol. Unlike those who hit rock bottom in life and then turn to God, Sue was quite satisfied with her lifestyle and felt no need to reform in any way. When Sue was a senior in high school, she found out that over the summer, one of her good friends had started attending church and had a life-changing experience with God. This friend invited Sue to her church, New Life Assembly, in Marysville, California.
Sue attended church for several weeks and even went out with the youth group for a street witnessing outreach. They kept telling her that she needed to be saved. At the time, Sue did not understand what that really meant, but some irresistible force (the Holy Spirit) kept drawing her. Finally, one night at a youth rally, the Holy Spirit gripped Sue’s heart and she knew that she had to give her life to God. That is the night she was saved, and not long afterward she received the baptism of the Holy Spirit.
Sue is a wife, a mother of 4 children, a grandmother of 8, and the co-pastor of Solid Rock Faith Center.
Tim recently joined the team at Solid Rock. He loves that his role gives him the opportunity to walk shoulder to shoulder with some great leaders and volunteers navigating the changes and challenges of life and ministry. Tim is passionate about supporting Christian leaders with the help, encouragement and resources they need to thrive in daily life and ministry. In addition to serving as executive pastor, Tim is also a certified life and leadership coach. He founded Encompass Life Coaching as a means to provide leadership and transition coaching for Christian leaders. In 2016 he and his family returned to their roots in Northern California following 20 years as missionaries in Eurasia. Tim and his wife Eve have three children, ages 22, 19 and 15. These days Tim is most excited about becoming a grandpa!
