Senior Pastor

Thanks for taking the time to look at our church website, and getting to know us a little bit better. My wife Dana and I, have five wonderful children, two grandchildren, and I absolutely love being a devoted family man.

I was raised in the Big Bear mountains of California, and as a result, I also have a great love for the outdoors, and enjoy that lifestyle very much. At the age of 16, I trusted Jesus Christ as my savior, and began my life’s journey as a Christian. It has truly been an incredible blessing, to follow the Lord, and I wouldn’t change it for the world.

As a US Army veteran, I am a patriot at heart. God, Country, and Family have been the primary focus of my entire adult life. It is my sincerely held conviction, that America needs God, now more than ever. Christ is the answer!

Being the pastor here at MVBC is an amazing honor, and every day I am grateful for the privilege of serving the Lord with such wonderful people. It has been a joy to see how the Lord is so faithful, and that he blesses the people who put Him first. I encourage you to make Jesus your highest priority, and hope to see you in church very soon.

God Bless You,

Chase Carpenter

Assistant Pastor

Thanks for taking the time to look around our website. It has been a blessing, to be a member of Mountain View Baptist Church, since 2012.

I met my beautiful wife Autumn, at a Bible college in Iowa, and we are now blessed with two active and fun-loving children.

In fact, I grew up in a little town, in southeastern Iowa, and it was in church there, at the age of 11, that I trusted Jesus Christ as my Savior, and found in Him, the best friend of my life. I also have a passion for history, and teaching.

As a teenager, I dedicated my life to serve the Lord, and went on mission trips, and to bible college, to prepare my life for His ministry. In 2012, God moved me to Mountain View Baptist Church, where I have the wonderful privilege of serving the families here, and spreading the Gospel to the High Desert, with them.

MVBC is a great church family of Bible focused believers. All have unique testimonies, of how God has blessed them, and it is a joy to worship the Lord, with them. I hope you will join us, to worship Lord Jesus Christ together.
