Hi. I’m Bruce Klett. I first understood and believed the gospel as a 6th grader during a Sunday school class in a small Baptist church in Boise, Idaho.  I met my wife Sue at Cedarville College in Ohio. After college and marriage, we lived in Columbus Ohio where I served as an assistant pastor at Clintonville Baptist Church. Sensing the need for further training, we moved to Dallas, TX where I studied at Dallas Theological Seminary. After serving part-time in Lake Highlands Bible Fellowship Church, Sue and I moved to Strawberry Point in July of 1981 where I serve as the pastor/teacher of Community Bible Church. God has blessed us with 5 children (now grown and on their own) and a currently growing number of grandchildren.

Ray Gienapp

My name is Ray Gienapp and I was saved in 1958 after graduating from high school.  I then went to Multnomah School of the Bible for 2 1/2 years before joining the Air Force for four years.  I met and married my wife, Eunice, in 1967. We have two grown children and two grown grandchildren.  We have raised beef breeding stock most of our lives.  We sold the cattle and retired from farming in 2014, and now live on an acreage north east of Strawberry Point.  I still do maintenance one day a week at an Assisted Living Facility.  I was part of the group that started CBC in 1976 and later became one of the first two elders.

Together we have lived and farmed near Strawberry point and have been blessed with three children and a growing amount of grandkids. The Lord gave us the understanding of the gospel in 1999 and we were drawn to the Community Bible Church in 2000 for fellowship and further understanding of His word. Lorri and I continue to farm in the Strawberry Point area and enjoy all the Lord has blessed us with.
