  • Trevor Waybright


    Lead Teaching Elder


    I was born and raised in Ripley, WV and graduated from Ripley High School in 1992. I then attended Crown College in Powell, TN where I met my wife, Joy, and we were married in 1997. After we graduated we moved to Beckley, WV where I was a youth pastor for 14 months. In early 2000, we moved to Pasco, WA and then down to Hermiston, OR where we started Victory Baptist Church in October of that year. God taught us much about grace and mercy and gave us three wonderful children (Jordan, Justin, and Alyssa) in the 14 years we were in Hermiston. In November of 2014, I accepted the position of Lead Teaching Elder here at Foundry and we relocated to Bend that same month.

  • STEVE HENDLEY

  • MICHAEL LONG


    Elder


    Although raised in Southern California, I consider my real roots to be in Lake Tahoe, where my family settled as pioneers five generations ago. And because I spent much of my youth there snow and water skiing, sailing, fishing, hiking, and loving the four seasons, I have felt right at home in Bend since we moved here in 2005. After graduating from Pepperdine in 1975, I married Patti, my college sweetheart, became the first youth pastor at Malibu Presbyterian Church, and then graduated from Fuller Seminary. We now have three grown children (all girls except two boys) and two grandchildren.


    As an entrepreneur at heart, my career path included various combinations of teaching, counseling, consulting, graphic design, marketing, and music. I am currently focused on developing missional communities (outward-facing life groups) at Foundry. Our mission is to truly live together as family, made in the image of God as missionary servants called to make disciple-making disciples of those around us.
