Kevin Baker









Jim Blain

BlainJim became an immersed believer at the age of 35. He has been an elder for several years at VCC, as well as leading an adult LIFE Group and being involved in our Outdoor Fellowship Ministry. Two of Jim’s favorite Scriptures are Ephesians 2:8-9, “For it is by grace you have been saved,through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast,” and 1 John 3:1, “See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him.” He loves VCC because it has a Bible-believing/teaching fellowship. He has lived in Eastern Idaho and Eastern Colorado. He has been married to his wife, Joan, since 1974 and has 4 adult children – Sharon, Kimberly, Amanda and Michael; and 5 grandchildren – Mackenzie, Jacob, Abigail, Marcus and Isaac.


Drex Bowden

BowdenDrex has been a Christian for over 15 years and is actively involved in our Jail Ministry, Outdoor Fellowship and Men’s Ministries, as well as being a Bible study leader. He is here at VCC because it is a Bible-believing church! Outside of loving the entire book of John, Drex’s favorite Scripture is 1 Cor 1:18, “Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth.” His interests include camping, hunting – really anything outdoors! Drex has lived in Vernal his entire life. He has been married to his wife, Sammi, for over 25 years and they have three children – Kassidi, Dakota and MaKenzi.

Zander McIntyre


I joined Vernal Christian Church in March of 2015. I was raised on a ranch in Northwest Colorado and moved to Vernal in 1994. I enjoy spending time with my wife Johnna, Kids and Grandkids, Camping, Hunting, and Riding Motor cycles. Johnna and I have been married since July 1995. I have two daughters Samantha and Nicole. I have two grandsons Jax and Haze with another grandson on the way. My favorite scriptures are: John 3:16 “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” Also, Psalm 71: 15-16 “My mouth will tell of your righteous deeds, of your saving acts all day long – though I know not how to relate them all. I will come to proclaim your mighty acts, Sovereign Lord; I will proclaim your righteous deeds, yours alone.” AND from Matthew 10:32 “Everyone who acknowledges me before others, I will also acknowledge before my Father in heaven.”
