PebbleCreek Community Church welcomes Pastor Dennis Kizziar and his wife Joan to our church community. He will preside over services every Sunday morning in the Eagle’s Nest Ballroom at 9:00 a.m.

Dennis and Joan have two children: Tim who lives in Sisters, Oregon, with his wife Anne and four children (two boys and two girls) and Jennifer who lives in Elk Grove, California, with her husband Scott and two daughters.

After Dennis’ graduation with a B.A. in Bible Studies from Biola University in La Mirada, California, in 1961, he and Joan were married in Tempe that year and began their life journey together. That journey has taken them to Portland, Oregon, where Dennis finished seminary, earning a Master’s Divinity from Western Theological Seminary and Joan taught fourth grade in a public school. Following seminary they have lived and ministered in São Paulo, Brazil; Corvallis, Oregon; Oak Brook, Illinois; Modesto, California; Sisters, Oregon; and Bend, Oregon.

Dennis has written two books. The first is Hope for the Troubled and Fallen, and the second is Fallen, Broken, Restored.

Dennis and Joan have also traveled to many countries of the world in ministry. Their ministry together has been as missionaries as well as Dennis being the pastor of various churches and working with a variety of Christian organizations in the United States and overseas. He developed and leads World Leadership Ministries which has a goal of encouraging, equipping and assisting Christian workers in the ministry.

Dennis has already served as our guest pastor and church members speak highly of his sermons. Please join us at PebbleCreek Community Church in the Eagle’s Nest Ballroom Sunday mornings at 9:00 a.m. and hear his sermons on life-altering titles from the Bible. You can also learn more by visiting
