GORDON AND JODI SLYTER
Gordon Slyter serves as our Lead Pastor at TVWC. Pastor Gordon is committed to a balanced teaching of the Bible, with intentional openness to the leading and ministry of the Holy Spirit. He loves connecting with people - new friends and long-time church family members. “Let’s Explore Life Together” is more than a motto with him! He loves helping people discover and grow into their God-given life potential, and he’s passionate about raising up new servant-leaders.
Gordon also serves our Foursquare family of churches as the Treasure Valley Division superintendent which gives him the privilege of connecting with our other churches throughout SW Idaho.
Idaho-grown, Gordon has a B.S. in Economics from the U. of I. After two years in banking, he left for California to earn an M.Div. in preparation for pastoral ministry. Pastoring is his passion and privilege, and it’s his great pleasure to serve our church family here at TVWC!
Jodi Slyter serves as our Assistant Pastor here at TVWC. She is active in many capacities in our church family and over the years has served in children’s, youth, women’s, and prayer team ministries, as well as church events and operations. Almost every area of our church life has been blessed by her input and encouragement!
Jodi also started our King’s Kids Preschool and Kindergarten which has been serving children in our community since 1998. Her B.A. and M.A. degrees in Education and Education Admin. have equipped her to serve as a teacher, principal, and administrator throughout her career. Her love of teaching and her love for children shine through everything she does!
Gordon and Jodi enjoy camping and kayaking in the great state of Idaho. They have three grown children and one wonderful daughter-in-law. Gordon and Jodi love to laugh, to pray, and to embrace life with friends new and old.
Our Youth Pastor, Galen Caldwell, loves hanging out with kids, having fun, and sharing his faith in Jesus. His vision for youth ministry is “building a faith that lasts.”
He also loves to work with kids to develop leadership skills as they serve in the youth group and in the church. Originally from Grants Pass, OR, he’s a graduate of Pacific Life Bible College in Vancouver, B.C.
Besides teaching and mentoring, Galen can be found longboarding, playing disc golf, freelancing in graphic design, and hanging out with his wife. He and Rylee have two kids, Max and Davie Lou.
