Lead Pastor

Chris Pawlowski


Chris joined the United States Navy in 1995 and served our country for 22 years, retiring in 2017 as a Chief Petty Officer. Believing that God has called him to full time ministry Chris began attending college in 2008. He has graduated with a Masters of Divinity in Homiletics from Liberty University Baptist Theological Seminary. He has been married to Rebekah for 13 years and they have three biological children, Hayden (10), Jeremiah (8) and Adelynn (7). They began to foster in 2017 and it was through this avenue that God brought Nyah (3) who is now fully adopted and Kaleb (1) into their family. Chris’ deepest desire is for the church to passionately pursue Christ and represent Him to a world that needs to hear His Gospel. This can happen best through fervent preaching of the Word of God and compassionate shepherding of His people.

God brought Tricia and I to Dishman in 2004 as newlyweds. In the years we have been here God has blessed us with four great children and many wonderful friends. 

God has grown me from only being served by the church to being a committed servant to the church. He has transformed my life while here and this has grown a huge desire to pass what I have gained to others. This is why I am passionate about growing our Life Groups. 

I have seen God grow so many people through the care, love, and encouragement that take place in our Life Groups. I hope you will take the chance, visit and see where God may take you.

From the moment of conversion in 2002, Chuck knew he wanted to serve the local church and has primarily done so through leading worship, but has recently branched out into teaching and preaching as well. Originally, he went to school for audio technology and music production, then went on to receive a B.A. in Communications from Grand Canyon University in 2014, and later, he graduated from Baptist Bible Seminary with a Master’s of Divinity in 2019. He owns a small business called Three23 Woodworks and enjoys a good book. He has been married to Becky since 2011 and has two wonderful kids, Poema and Nehemiah.

I was born and raised here in Spokane, WA. I have been attending Dishman for many years. DBC is where I met my husband Kyle. We have been happily married since 2014 and this summer welcomed our daughter Evelyn into our home. I love Jesus more than anything! I love serving here at DBC, not only in the office but in Children’s Ministry as well! Spending time with family and friends is by far my favorite thing to do. I also love to camp and be in the beautiful outdoors. Summer and Fall are my favorite seasons of the year and Christmas is my favorite holiday.
