About the Outpost

As a rural outpost, Pedee serves as home to many and a stopping point in the journey for many more.

There are believers on their way deeper into the wilderness that would not reach their destination if they didn’t find a place of refuge and growth along the way.

We believe that a strong, local church body is central to growing healthy families, establishing a community, and even maintaining a strong local economy. We value time together and enjoy the great variety of people we have in our family.
We are drawn by the Father, saved from sin through Jesus Christ, empowered by the Holy Spirit, and recognize the Bible as authoritative.

Daniel Russell, Pastor

Daniel Russell left a position with the Oregon Legislature in 2012 to lead at Pedee Church. He  was ordained within the Pacific Conference of the Evangelical Church of North America in 2016. Daniel and his wife Heidi are eager to see believers drawn into a deeper walk with the Lord, children raised up to know Jesus personally, and to see unbelievers welcomed into a family of Christ followers. The Russells love life in the country and good coffee.


Pastor Parish
Pastor Parish is a committee of church leaders at Pedee Church dedicated to meeting the needs of the church body and maintaining harmony and unity amongst the congregation.
Pastoral transitions are managed by the Pastor Parish committee as well as any congregational concerns with the pastor. This committee also supports the pastor and his family throughout the year in a variety of ways.

Church Council
Church Council conducts the business of the church. The members of council chair the variety of ministries operated by the church as well as overseeing the finances of the organization.
Monthly meetings are where the council members review upcoming events, projects and expenditures, approve policy, and receive a pastors report.

The church is made up of people but there are also buildings and facilities that support the functions of the church. At Pedee Church these are owned and managed by the Church Trustees.
The church building, church grounds, and church parsonage are all maintained by the trustees through the work of volunteers or those that the trustees employ.
