Transitional Pastor Dr. Bruce Cannon

Personal Journey
I placed my faith in Christ as an eight-year-old in Montana. We soon moved to Alaska where I spent my pre-teen and teen years. I come to Arizona from Montana after church starting and pastoring for nearly 20 years, and leading Yellowstone Christian College as their President for more than seven years. My education background includes a Doctorate in Education, Master’s degrees in Divinity and Education, and Bachelor’s in Biblical Studies. I am thrilled to make our home in Kingman.

Ministry Experience
I served four churches in various staff positions during college and seminary. My seven-year church starting experiences (NAMB) in Missoula, Montana were my first pastorates. We also served a Billings, Montana, church for eight years and enjoyed four interim pastorates for a total of more than four years.

Sue, my bride of 36 years, and I served with the International Mission Board in Jordan and Syria. I led the decentralized theological education program for pastors and lay leaders in Syria, traveling the country teaching small pockets of Christian leaders. We returned as self-funded workers to Jordan several years later. I taught honors-history in a 1,200-student Christian Arab school and was the interim headmaster of an international Christian workers’ K-12 school.

Youth Pastor/Worship Leader Richard Felton

Richard Pic CroppedMy name is Richard Felton, and I have officially been the youth pastor and worship leader for the Contemporary service since May 2016. I was ordained on April 30th 2017 and am very excited to see what God has in store for me and my family..

I come to FSBC Kingman with my wife of almost 30 years and my 3 sons still living at home. We have 5 sons over-all, so in addition to the ones at home we have two sons living out of state. My experience working with youth is extensive. I have been a youth pastor for over 7 years as well as being a public educator in the junior high and high school setting for 9 years. During that time I taught PE as well as coaching football, baseball and basketball. Needless to say team activities are my strong suit, so if you are a youth in this group you better be ready to have some FUN!!!

My education includes an Associates degree from Southwestern Oregon Community College, a Bachelors of Science from Oregon State University, and a Master of Arts from Pacific University. I have also attended Northern Arizona University, Grand Canyon University, and am currently taking course through Christian Leader Institute.
