Dick Powell
I was born in Indianapolis, Ind. and grew up as the older of two children in an Air Force family. We were being transferred constantly, even living in England for 3 years. I came to know the Lord while in recovery for alcoholism. My wife Ruth and I have attended Faith Community Church since its beginning and are blessed to be a part of this family. Ruth and I have lived in Vacaville since 1989. You might say we are refugees from the "89" earthquake, as we lived in Watsonville (just 10 miles from the epicenter) prior to moving here. I spent 45 years in retail and insurance before retiring in 2003. Blessed with a Godly wife and God centered church I am humbled at being selected by you to represent FCC as one of your Deacons. Serving the Lord is a blessing and a joy.

I was born and raised in Redding CA, and came to know the Lord at an early age. I currently live in Dixon, CA and work in Sacramento for UPS. My wife, Rachelle, and I have been attending Faith since 2003 along with our 2 daughters, Lauren and Emma. It is a joy and a privilege to serve the Lord in a church that is committed to giving all glory to God. We are blessed to be a part of this church.

I was born and raised in Pacifica, CA and attended The Master's College where I met my wonderful wife Katharine. We have been attending FCC since we moved to Vacaville in 2007. We now have two boys and love watching them grow in this great church. We are blessed to be a part of FCC and I love serving as a deacon in our church.

I was born in South Dakota, but spent most of my life in either Montana or California. The Lord saved me in the late 1980's using the faithful love and discipline of my parents to help me understand my sinfulness and draw me to the Lord by grace through faith through the work of Jesus Christ. I was baptized a year later to be obedient to God's Word and publicly proclaim my new life in Christ. The Lord continues His sanctifying work in my life. In 2005, I married the love of my life, Monica. We moved from Montana to Vacaville in 2007 after accepting a local job offer as a software engineer in automation and started attending Faith Community Church in 2008. The Lord has blessed us with two boys named Josiah and Ethan. I am thankful for opportunities to serve the Lord as part of FCC like teaching children’s Sunday school with my wife and helping with the audio visual ministry.

I grew up in Colorado and moved to California in 1987. My wife Robin and I joined Granite Springs Church in Rocklin. As a child, I learned the value of honesty and moral integrity - but held only a casual understanding of the magnitude of Jesus Christ. We have two incredible children, both involved with the church's youth program, and while my journey with our Lord started late, I don't want the mistakes of how I was raised to fall on the shoulders of my children. We moved to Vacaville in 1996, and after attending different churches in the area we were drawn to Faith Community Church when it moved to Vacaville. Several years ago, as I prepared for neck surgery, the Lord called me to approach the greeters' ministry and offer to serve as a stand-in for a sweet wonderful lady who was scheduled for surgery on the same day. I continue to greet families as they arrive at FCC because that's what our Lord wants. I'm humbled to stand with the fine men who already serve our church as its deacons, and honored to be one of these new men being asked to serve.

I was born and raised right here in the Fairfield/Vacaville area where I reside to this day with my wonderful wife of 20 years Amber, and our 2 children Allison and Noah. I have worked for the City of Vacaville since 1999 and am currently the Parks Maintenance Supervisor. I came to know our Lord as an adult after we had our first child. Not growing up in the faith has allowed me to experience the utter hopelessness that comes from not having a personal relationship with Jesus and also the ability to know the extraordinary difference it makes in one's life to be called His child. I am humbled and excited to have the opportunity to serve here at Faith Community Church.

I was born and raised in Pittsburgh, PA. I moved to San Diego in 1983 and that is where I met my lovely and godly wife Lynette. We moved to Vacaville in 1992 to raise a family and we have two wonderful children Amanda and Timothy. I currently live in Dixon and work at Costco in Vacaville. I have been employed with Price Club/Costco for 34 years. I was a young man living a life of sin and I was brought up in the Catholic church. In San Diego I was invited to go to a non-denominational church. It was at that time I really experienced God's love for me and accepted the Lord as my Savior. I began to be transformed into a different person. I am so blessed to be a part of FCC. My desire is to be obedient to God's calling to serve you with love and sacrifice.
