Lead pastors

Van and Lori Bradeen are our lead pastors. Van is an ex-college football player who went from typical college party-er to radical Christian when gave his life to Jesus and never looked back.  It was then, as a 19-year-old new Christian,  that he felt in his heart he would one day pastor a church in Spokane.  After graduating from Eastern Washington University, Van and Lori, having married in college,  went to Portland Bible College and then helped plant City Harvest Church in Vancouver, WA, where Van became a staff pastor.  23 years after believing God had called him to pastor a church in Spokane,  the Bradeen family, along with two other couples, were sent out from their home church in Vancouver  to Spokane and pioneered a new Church, now Living Stone.  It was a family affair.

At that time their three kids, Hunter, Cole and Charity, were in High School, Jr. High and Elementary respectively.  Although Hunter and Cole are now grown and on their own, they are still in integral part of Living Stone. Hunter and his wife, Natalie, pastor the Jr. High through College age.  Cole, finishing his last semester of college, has been a faithful part of the worship team since our opening day. Charity is involved in the youth group and serves in children's classes.  She also stays busy with Running Start college classes and as a competitive dancer.

Lori, also an EWU graduate, pastors alongside Van as well as working at a local hospice as Manager of Volunteers.


At Living Stone we have a team of elders who help to govern our body.  Some of their responsibilities include; guarding doctrine, managing finances, hiring, firing, and relational accountability among the leadership. They support the church vision and provide leadership.
