Meet Our Team

Bruce and Heather

Bruce Martin

District Superintendent

Bruce graduated from Dallas Theological Seminary in 1989.  He and his wife, Heather, moved to Eugene, OR where God used him to plant River Oaks Community Church.  

Over the years, he has served on the PNWD District Board, as well as the EFCA Church Start Team, and the District Superintendents Team.  He became the full-time District Superintendent of the Pacific NW District in 2009. Bruce has a passion for planting churches, and for helping existing churches re-center their ministries around disciple-making.  He is believing God for a movement to begin in the Northwest among churches who are multiplying disciples, leaders, ministries and ultimately, themselves!

Bruce and Heather live in Eugene, OR.
