Pastor Colene Wiens

Worship Arts Pastor

Serving through Worship Arts has long been my passion. I came from a traveling singing family in Kansas and have used those early church ministry experiences to realize the importance of music in worship as a means of spiritual expression, healing, encouragement and unity. The Worship Arts Department here at Port Naz is filled with people who are motivated by their love for God and for ministering through worship. It's an absolute joy and privilege to serve with them! In my downtime I love spending time with my husband, kids, their spouses and my little grandgirls. I also enjoy the coast, golf, golfing at the coast, spending time with friends and enjoying good music.

Pastor Chad Ramage

Family and Community Life Pastor

Hailing all the way from his hometown of Visalia with a brief stop at NNU in Nampa, Idaho for a couple of degrees, Chad has been on staff at Port Naz since 1997. He has two amazing boys, Kaden and Breken, and a wonderful partner in ministry, Voni, that assists him in getting into plenty of trouble, as well as help build a strong church community here at Port Naz.  As the great philosopher of our pastoral staff, Chad is known to hang out in his office at times with a good book by the late Henri Nouwen and a half-consumed cup of coffee. When he isn’t in the office, you’ll probably find him hitting the links, or chatting over a basket of chips and salsa over just about anything.  Pastor Chad and Voni love building relationships and seeing people grow!
