Pastor Josh Droke

Thanks for checking out our church on-line!  My wife Wendy and I have been a part of the Kelso/Longview community since she started teaching for Kelso School District in 2002.  She is now a math and CTE teacher at Kelso High School (go Hilanders!).  She loves her job, especially the chance to be a part of teenagers’ lives on a daily basis.

We made East Hills our home church in 2010 and I was privileged to come on staff in May of 2013. Wendy and I have two beautiful girls, Ashlynn and Sharilee, and our lives are full of school, church, and the ballet studio.
People who get to know me find that I am passionate about my family - they are my focus and driving force.  I am also passionate about ministry strategy, what makes people tick, and helping connect people to their needed savior, Jesus Christ.

I love our church and the ways we give out grace, support, and encouragement. I know you will find East Hills and The Grove to be a church full of passionate people experiencing life change because of the grace of Jesus.
