Chris
Chris Natland
Director of Youth & Communication Ministries
Chris has been working at Tigard UMC since July of 2007 with the youth and young adults. He and his wife, Tiffany, have a 5 year old daughter, and 1 year old son. Family is a blessing loves the time he has to enjoy the outdoors playing, camping or kayaking. The young people that he gets to work with are truly amazing and loves being able to serve the Tigard community in a way that he feels so called to do.
Staci has been in the ministry for 20ish years and she still has regular conversations with God on why she’s called to the ministry. A bit of a skeptic and heretic, she has an affinity for people who like to question everything and/or feel uneasy about church. In 2010, Staci vocalized a dream to start a coffee house ministry. With the help of Linda Dove and the support of Tigard UMC, Jubilatte became a reality in the fall of 2011. Staci loves to help families and children deepen their relationship with one another and with God through fellowship, learning opportunities, and service. In her spare time, she enjoys exercising, walking her crazy dog, and spending time with her husband and two boys.

    Christmas Pageant
    Dec 17 @ 10:00 am
    The Children’s Christmas pageant will be performed during our 10:00am worship service. The play is called Ruby’s Runaway Pageant and it’s a funny and sweet story of one child’s attempt to create the perfect pageant….but, of course, that’s not what happens.  So with all the mishaps and imperfections they actually create the (im)perfect story of Jesus’ birth.   Stick around...

  • What they’re saying…

    I spent about 2 years enjoying Jubilatte’s warm inviting atmosphere. I’d drink coffee while my kids played in the play area. It was in Jubilatte that I met and began to form relationships with church members and also Pastor Jeremy. When we decided to start attending Sunday worship, it was clear to me what an impact Jubilatte had on my family’s life. Tigard UMC is where we belong. I’m not sure if we would have discovered that if it wasn’t for Jubilatte.
