Rodney Payne II

Lead Pastor
Pastor Rodney Payne II spent his early years in Southern Ohio, has lived in Tennessee and Michigan, but has been here in Oregon for over 18 years. Pastor Rodney graduated from Southern Adventist University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Theology with minors in History, Practics and Biblical Languages. He then graduated from Andrews University with a M.Div gradutate degree in Theology. He dedicated himself in education and currently in practice to the call of sharing God’s love and word through meaningful preaching. After ministering in the Georgia-Cumberland Conference (Tennessee) for 6 years, Rodney was invited to start a young adult ministry here at Beaverton and soon took on the youth pastor role as well. About 7 years later he was invited to step into the Lead Pastor role. His concern for the spiritual growth and needs of children, youth and young adults continues to this day but he celebrates and values the whole inter-generational community.
During his ministry here at the Beaverton Church, Pastor Rodney met and fell in love with his now-wife Brenda. They have two young children, a son Rodney III, ‘Roddy’, and daughter Amelia. Rodney enjoys active wellness such as running and cycling, golf on occasion, as well as enjoying his family time riding bikes, trailer camping and so much more.

Jeff Bradburn

Youth & Young Adult Pastor
Jeff Bradburn is an Oregon local and proud to call the PNW home. Raised a Christian, he discovered the beauty of a relational God while attending college in Canada. A few years later, while working as a Youth Pastor in Hawaii, he heard the gospel for the first time, and his life has never been the same.
In addition to pastoring, Jeff spent 5 summers on staff at Big Lake Youth Camp and worked as a Middle and High School teacher. While pursuing a Master of Divinity at Andrews University, Jeff met his wife Ruth who became his lifelong adventure buddy and partner in ministry. Together they have a mini-Australian Shepherd named Benji.
Jeff currently serves as Associate Pastor with an emphasis in Youth and Young Adults. He is passionate about developing leaders, storytelling, and following the way of Jesus.
In his free time, you can find Jeff trail running, backpacking, rock climbing, and surfing the Oregon Coast.

What is a Pastoral Assistant?
A Pastoral Assistant, formerly called Elder, is a spiritual leader in our church. They serve in various roles, including administration, assisting in worship, offering personal prayer, conducting Bible studies, providing a listening ear for concerns, visiting those in need, posting prayer requests, and participating in anointing ceremonies for healing. Our Pastoral Assistants at Beaverton are approachable, responsive, and available for support outside of church. Feel free to reach out for assistance.
