Our Pastor

Pastor Jeff & Nydia Black have been married since 1986. They are blessed with six adult children and two grandsons. After the Air Force and Bible college, the two of them spent 18 years at Cornerstone Church in Mesa, Arizona, involved in every aspect of ministry under the excellent leadership and guidance of Dr. James E. Adams.

In 2007, Jeff stepped away from retail business to actively pursue a full-time pastorate in which to fulfill God’s call. He served two mission organizations in managerial roles while engaged in itinerant preaching and teaching ministries in local churches.

In 2011, Jeff was called to serve as a missionary-pastor with Village Missions, serving a rural congregation in Halsey, OR. In the summer of 2022, he left VM to continue serving the church body in Halsey as its pastor.

Pastor Black has been with us for over eleven years. Both he and Nydia are committed to ministering to the needs of our church body and assisting the community in a variety of ways. If you would like to donate to the needs of our church, please consider visiting our Giving page on this website.

If you’d like to connect, send an email to graceinhalsey@gmail.com. We’d be delighted to share in the hope of Christ with you!

Scripture Reflection

2 Corinthians 5:6-8

So we are always confident, knowing that while we are at home in the body we are absent from the Lord. For we walk by faith, not by sight. We are confident, yes, well pleased rather to be absent from the body and to be present with the Lord.
