Rev. Kevin Manuel
Kevin loves being a pastor and is excited to serve CPC and together follow Christ's call in this new season. He grew up in the Sierra Nevada mountains and has pastored congregations in the San Francisco and Boston Presbyteries over the last 20+ years. He and his wife, Tina, are eager to explore central Oregon and look forward to welcoming their 2 college-age children home to such a beautiful place. Kevin is a big fan of the Boston Celtics, coffee, Japanese green tea, native trout fishing, and running.
Director of Music Ministries
Karen Baldwin-Kuntz (pronounced Koonts) is excited to work with the wonderful musicians here at CPC and to praise the Lord and enhance worship through music. She and her husband, Don, recently moved to Redmond to be closer to some of their grandkids and enjoy semi-retirement. They have five children and six grandchildren. Karen has 40 years of musical experience as a participant, teacher, and director.
Gina is a follower of Jesus, wife of Todd, mama of five kiddos, one daughter-in-law, and seven cats. She has worked in customer service, communications, and office administration for over 14 years. Their family lived on the Young Life camp Washington Family Ranch in Antelope, Oregon serving youth and churches for 22 years, and over two years ago they were called by God to Redmond/Terrebonne Oregon. They love to be active outside, play board games, and watch adventure movies and documentaries.
Director of Children's Ministry
I have attended CPC for the past 6 years and love being Director of children’s ministry for the past 2 years. I have been a teacher my whole life, and I am called to serve children at CPC by helping them grow in their faith. My husband Garry and I moved to Central Oregon about 6 years ago from the Seattle area. We enjoy spending our spare time going on road trips to see the natural beauty that Oregon offers.
Peggy Blocker joins us from Colorado where she has been an accompanist for many years. She loves playing piano and organ in the church.
