Mike Chinn has been a Pastor at Keyport Bible Church in Keyport Washington, since 2001. He is assisted in his ministry by his wife of 41 years, Carolyn. They have three grown children: Marcus, Diana and Andrew. Mike became a follower of Jesus Christ in 1979 at the age of 27. In 1985, Mike took his first short-term mission trip to the Philippines with Christ for Greater Manila under the direction of Doug Nichols. This trip would have a profound influence on the rest of Mike’s life. The Lord gave Mike the opportunity to enter into full-time ministry in 1989. Leaving a law career, Mike began to serve as a youth intern for Independent Bible Church in Port Angeles, Washington. By God’s grace he was able to receive academic training while He was involved in church ministry. He continued to minister at IBC as an associate pastor for another 5 years, serving in the areas of evangelism, Christian education and Shepherd’s care. In 1996, Mike and his family answered the Lord’s call to be missionaries in Poland. After 6 years of ministering in Northwest Poland, Mike returned to the States because of health problems. He then assumed the senior pastor role at Keyport.
Jonathan Morris has been married (extremely happily) to Brooke since 2016. They enjoy any activity that is outside including hiking, camping, fishing, hammocking and love to be competitive and slightly goofy at times, ok more than slightly. They have a multi-closet collection of board games and enjoy having people over for good food, tons of laughter, and some games. Jonathan and Brooke are both extremely passionate about youth ministry and mentoring and encouraging students through real relationships with them, their families, and through fun! Jonathan has been in youth ministry since 2014 and absolutely loves it! God used his own youth pastor in high school to impact him in a huge way and his desire is to pass on that same love, intentionality, and real friendship to those God has placed at Keyport Youth. God’s unconditional love is what motivates him on a daily basis and causes him to want to share with students the truth that they are known fully and loved immensely by the God of the universe. Jonathan is so excited to see God at work at KBC through the volunteers, students and their families and is always open for some good coffee (preferably a single origin Ethiopia pour over) and great, genuine conversation.
Julianne has been attending KBC for 15 years. Over the years she has served in a variety of ministry projects including overseas missions and, locally, serving homeless youth.
Loretta and her husband, Kevin, have been a wonderful blessing to KBC since they first began attending. They are both actively involved in our greeting ministry and our nursery ministry. They have been blessed with two children.
