  • Nate Weller

    Pastor/Teaching Elder

    I grew up in the Midwest (Wisconsin, Michigan, and Minnesota). In 2010, I earned a degree in engineering from North Dakota State University and worked for five years as a Manufacturing Engineer. During that time, God began to call me into full-time ministry. I eventually submitted to God’s call on my life by pursuing a Master of Divinity degree from Bethlehem College & Seminary in Minneapolis, MN. During seminary, I worked part-time as a youth pastor at a church in the Minneapolis area. In May of 2019, I graduated from seminary and moved to Portland, OR to be a youth and associate pastor there for two years. In the Fall of 2021, I accepted a call from Living Stone Church to join their team of elders as the lead teaching elder. I am married to an incredible wife and mother, Abby. And we have three boys: Henrik, Elias, and Oliver. We love the Northwest outdoors. As a family, we enjoy hiking, camping, swimming, and exploring Washington. We also love to cook and host people at our home.

  • Dennis Vogt

    Elder chairman

    We moved to WA State in 1978 from Southern California and have lived in North Bend, Kirkland, Woodinville and now Chelan. We have been part of Living Stone Church since 2011, but we attended during vacations in Chelan starting in 1990. We love being a part of the body at Living Stone Church and serving there as well. We both enjoy playing at and watching golf, when time allows. We thank God for guiding us to Living Stone Church, and for all the wonderful friends there, who call it their place to worship and serve Him alongside others.

  • Dwight keegan

    Elder Vice Chairman

    I have lived most of my life in Washington.  My wife, Orlanna and I enjoy our retirement from Washington State Parks (me) and the Post Office (Orlanna.) I have served Living Stone and the former church, Little Stone, since the mid 1990’s and have worked as an elder, deacon, board chair, greeter, and handyman.  I love and care about the people who make up this church.

  • Steve Firman

    Elder Secretary

    Kathy and I have been married 52 years and we have two adult children and three grandchildren.  We both grew up in Wenatchee.  When I retired, we moved to Chelan and started attending Little Stone Church.  I served as a board member and then deacon at Little Stone.  I enjoy singing and playing guitar for Sunday worship.  

  • dave rinehart


    I moved to Chelan in 1982.  I married my wife, Tammy, in 1983. We have two daughters, Christa and Caitlyn, two granddaughters and one grandson who play an important role in our lives. In 1984 I joined the local police reserves and in 1985 I transitioned into law enforcement full time. After 30 years of working in law enforcement I retired but continue to work. Over the years I have been involved in many aspects of church ministry; youth ministry, deacon/elder, men’s ministry, maintenance, support, and just good old fashioned whatever needs to be done stuff.  I believe the new journey God has for me is serving the LSC family as an Elder and raising my granddaughter, Aurora.   

  • tammy rinehart

    Office Administrator

    I moved to Chelan in 1973 when my parents moved our family from Vancouver, Washington to Chelan so my dad could pastor the local Assembly of God Church. My dad pastored that church until 1985 when they moved to pastor a church in Burlington, Washington. In 1982 I met a handsome, young man some friends had invited to church with them. He had just purchased the business next to theirs. Our first date was a motorcycle ride with those friends. That first ride began the next journey in the ride of my life. Dave and I were married in 1983. We have two daughters, a granddaughter whom we help raise, another grandson and granddaughter who, along with their mom and dad, have relocated from Colorado to Washington State to pastor the church my father retired from a few years ago. Growing up in the church has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. I pray I have passed on the example of ministry I was shown growing up. It taught me to love God and to love serving the body of Christ. I am thankful for that opportunity.

    sunday teams deaconess

    I am a Washington native who first came to the Chelan Valley in 1989 as a Park Ranger at Lake Chelan State Park. Since then, I have lived on both the North and South shores, served as the Executive Director of the Lake Chelan Chamber of Commerce and currently lives up First Creek with my husband Curtis whom I met on Maui while living there between 2003-2017. One of my greatest joys is singing praises to the Lord by Curtis' side whenever possible and considers being a part of LSC's music ministry a great blessing.

  • clarissa steiner

    student ministry deaconess

    I was born and raised in Chelan and grew up attending Living Stone Church with my family. After searching for a church home when my husband, John and I were married, new friends and youth ministry brought us "home" to LSC. You can usually find me spending time with family, chasing our busy nephews and nieces around or leading Young Life.

  • john steiner

    student ministry deacon

    I grew up in Wenatchee and moved to Chelan and married my amazing wife, Clarissa in 2006. In 2013, we were introduced to Young Life and started attending LSC with fellow leaders and friends and quickly knew it was where God was calling us. I enjoy spending time with our family, umpiring and officiating youth sports, leading Young Life and yelling for/at the Seahawks.
