Doug Stolhand

Lead Pastor

Growing up in Southern California, Doug and Debbie were both blessed in that their family’s relationship to God through Jesus Christ was a priority that they saw lived out. As a result, they both came to faith in Christ as kids and grew up attending the same church, where they “met” in high school. 

They enjoy building relational bridges with people who don’t yet know Christ; relationships that are strong enough to carry the weight of the gospel. Doug thrives on telling people about Jesus, communicating the Word, and prayer. So, he rides (bicycling) with others, he keep bees with others, he coaches, whatever and wherever, all to find ways to associate with those who are searching for meaning in life and praying that somehow God will open the door for a conversation that can change their eternity by introducing them to Jesus. 

Doug loves to ride his bike. But on his days off he likes to bake, hunt, fish, do woodwork, cook, and keep bees. Above all else Doug and Debbie's greatest joy comes from seeing God at work and being used by Him for His glory.



After growing up in Lynden, WA, (Go Lynden Lions!) he graduated from Centralia Community College with an Associates Degree in 1994. He received his B.A. in Bible and Youth Ministry from Multnomah University in 1997. Shon served as Youth Pastor at Central Bible Church in Portland, Oregon from 1998-2011. In October of 2011, Shon answered the call to serve on staff at EBF and started as the Youth Pastor in 2012. In June of 2014 Shon transitioned to the Associate Pastor role. Some of Shon's favorite things about being a pastor include: working with students & families, encouraging men, leading mission trips, going on retreats, meeting with people, helping new people get plugged into the church, teaching, seeing people grow in their faith, facilitating small groups, planning events. Shon also loves coaching basketball at North Thurston High School and enjoys hunting and fishing. Shon is married to Melody and they have six children along with a daughter-in-law and a son-in-law.



Justin started at EBF in June 2021. Justin grew up in Sacramento, California, and was blessed to grow up in a Christian home. His dad led him to the Lord at a young age. He grew in his faith and love for the Lord through godly parents, church activities, and youth ministries. Justin played basketball, baseball and football while growing up. His entire family sings, so music was an important part of his life both at church and school.

Justin graduated from Moody Bible Institute in Chicago with a B.A. in Biblical studies with an interdisciplinary emphasis in Pastoral Studies in May of 2021. God has given Justin a heart for loving young people and teaching and encouraging youth in their faith, and walk with the Lord. He is eager to build relationships with all students and is sensitive to those who might be on the fringes. He is a leader who is motivated by his desire to serve the Lord and to see spiritual growth in young people, and bring unbelievers to faith in Christ.

During his Junior year at Moody, Justin met his best friend, Jamie Brewer and they married in 2021. Both Jamie and Justin have experience working with youth and are extremely passionate about discipleship and sharing the love of Christ.
