Who we are

Whether you have been following Christ for a long time or are just starting out on your spiritual journey, you are welcome at La Center Church.  

At La Center Church we are committed to impact our community through culturally relevant ministry, while holding to the timeless truths found in the Bible. 

La Center Church is a part of the Evangelical Free Church of America network of churches, which is an association of autonomous churches united around a common theological conviction.

Our Leadership

La Center Church is an elder-led church. Our elders consist of qualified laymen along with the pastor. The elders are a team of shepherds, working hand in hand with the pastor to care for and lead the congregation.

Pastor Michael Kirkman was called to serve La Center Church in 2010. He brings to this ministry over 35 years of experience and leadership, having served in pastoral leadership in four churches and as the Executive Director of Central Oregon Youth for Christ. He is married to Carol and they have three grown children, all serving our Lord in their local churches.

Vaughn Pugh, Clint Gerke, and Steve Matson are currently serving the congregation on the elder team.
