Paul Boehlke | Pastor
Paul and his wife Kristina moved to The Dalles in 2014 to plant One Life church. Paul has always had a love for the people and culture of The Dalles. Both he and Kristina are grateful to be a part of this community. They have 3 children and one day they'll buy a dog. They wont ever have a cat. Paul likes slam poetry, archery hunting, hip hop, jazz (big band, not the slow stuff), and doesn't think bacon is all that it's cracked up to be. He also believes eating McDonald's french fries is worth the health risk. Paul's hope for One Life is that it'll become a community of people transformed by the Gospel and empowered to see the Kingdom of God move deeper into our region.
CASSIE WALLER | Administrator
I grew up 20 miles west of The Dalles, and my husband Josh and I moved our family here in 2015 to be involved in planting One Life. The vision for the church structure and its complete dependence on Jesus, then each other, is part of what inspired us. We have four children and when I’m not actively parenting, I love to write, plan audacious things for my garden that almost never come to fruition, drink coffee, and read.
Noah Blakely | Children’s Ministry Lead / Resident Church Planter
I am a husband to my beautiful bride Lauren, and father to my son Parker. Growing up as a homeless youth I was drawn closer to Jesus Christ because he was the only constant thing I knew. I was pretty much raised by the churches of The Dalles and love the opportunity to give back to that community. Now I serve as a children’s minister and get to share the hope that I found in Christ.
Ethan Haworth | Worship Leader
I was born and raised in the Gorge and have always had a passion for music and worship. In 2009, I joined Youth With A Mission (YWAM) Salem, and spent about five years in worship ministry and missions. In 2015 I moved back to The Dalles to help with my family’s business and spent two years in school to attain my Associate’s Degree in Electro-Mechanical Technology. I joined One Life in 2017, Graduated community college in 2018, and in 2019 God called me back into worship ministry. I love backpacking, camping, biking, and just being outdoors, but I also enjoy a good video game with friends. I like helping people in practical ways, can’t resist the occasional practical joke, and could practically live on bacon. My heart is to see God glorified in the hearts and lives of His followers in our city and to the ends of the Earth.
