Sam Aldridge – Lead Pastor
Originally from England, Sam has been the lead pastor at Willamina FMC since April 2018. Before joining us, he was pastor of Mountain Gospel Fellowship, the Free Methodist church in Falls City, OR. His Bachelors degree is in Music from the University of Wales, and his Masters is in Divinity from George Fox Evangelical Seminary (now The Portland Seminary). He is an avid steam train fan, and can sometimes be found firing steam locomotives on the Oregon Coast Scenic Railroad. He is married to the beautiful Rachael, and can often be found with their dog Abigail not far behind him (the cats stay at home!).
Meagan Bliven - Deacon
Meagan was born, grew up, and got married in Willamina Free Methodist Church. She is currently training to become a consecrated deacon, and shares some of the preaching load with pastor Sam. Most days she can be found in the church office, but she also helps out with youth ministries at the church. When not at the church, she works as a school bus driver in Sheridan. She is married to Zach and has three wonderful kids – Alaina, Ellie, and Ilijah.
