Our pastor & his family
Doug & Tricia Hounshell were both raised in Christian homes in northeast Ohio. They have called Utah their home for the last fifteen years.
After Doug received his ministerial training, he served as associate and senior pastor of several churches in Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Florida. In 2003, he became a missionary church-planter with a focus on Mormon-dominated Utah and the Intermountain West. In 2005, he started Cliffview Chapel in Kanab, Utah. Several other mission works were started in Southwest Utah in 2010, 2018, and 2020.
Tricia received her elementary teaching degree from a Christian university and taught in Christian school until she became a full-time "pastor's wife," and homemaker.
Doug & Tricia have two children. Their adult daughter, Hope, lives in Central Utah and their son, True, is nine years old and is home schooled by mom.
