Kevin Bartholomae

Leadership Team Chair

My wife and I have been attending Pine Lake Covenant Church for 5 years. We have two boys. We have grown to love Pine Lake Covenant and the community of people that make it a great place. I have had the privilege to participate and serve in many ministries at PLCC during my 5 years here. I am currently serving on the Sign Task Force as well as the Technology Steering Committee. I have also enjoyed leading, with others in our congregation, a Life Group that has focused on the needs of families. This has been an amazing blessing to my family. I am excited to be joining the Leadership Team as we welcome Pastor Mark Meredith to PLCC. I look forward to how God will use my gifts as I serve the congregation

Leadership Team Vice-Chair

My wife and I have been members of Pine Lake Covenant Church for 13 years and we have two children. During our time at PLCC I've been a Sunday school teacher, participated in and presented at Men's Fraternity, attended Men's Retreat, been a member of the Parents with Young Children life group, and served one term on the Leadership Team. As a member of the church I’ve been privileged to see God’s hand intervening in the lives of many people and the Holy Spirit guiding our church through both good and turbulent times. I’m honored to be called to serve on the Leadership Team at Pine Lake Covenant Church and excited to see what the Lord has planned for our faith community.

Leadership Team Secretary

The Spirit of the Lord is moving within PLCC, preparing us for a future which will bear much fruit for His Kingdom. While on the Pastor Search Committee this past year and a half, I’ve sensed God calling me back to a leadership role, to help Pastor Mark implement his vision for our church. I served five years on the Church Council during Pastor Chris’ early days, so I know the awesome things God can accomplish through us, if we come to him with a willing heart. I’m excited and can’t wait to get started! Thank you for this opportunity.

Tony Pound

After attending Antioch Bible Church for 20 years my family was led to find a church closer to home and one where we would feel more connected and get more involved.  My wife, Jeannine, and our three girls, Joy (10), Zoe (8), and Sasha (6) landed here at Pine Lake Covenant Church about seven years ago. Through children's programs, multiple family Life groups, early morning Men's groups, family camps in the summers, serving meals to the homeless in Seattle, helping in the nursery and teaching Kindergarten/1st grade we feel very connected and blessed to be part of this church family.  All of the above has led our family to a place we feel is home.  I'm not sure what to expect serving on the Leadership Team but hope that it will only add to my connection and growth with this church family and that I can contribute to helping new people feel and experience what we have over the past seven years.

Lesley Roddick

Lesley was raised in Northern Idaho and graduated from PLU with a degree in communication and business. 
She is married to Eddy and they have two daughters, Betsy Rose (10) and Nina Elise (8). 
At PLCC Lesley volunteers in greeting, teaching Sunday school, helping with VBS, planning the baptism BBQ, and more recently story telling! Her interests include puppies, volleyball, golfing, running, music, laughing, coffee, good cheese, sparkly things and wildflowers.
