Wayne Wrzesinski -- Associate/youth Pastor

I am excited to join the team at Alliance Bible Church.  I've had a passion for student ministry since I was a teenager and look forward to walking with the students of Alliance Bible church on their journey towards Jesus.

I've been married to Nicole for fourteen years and we have two kiddos.  our daughter, Annabelle, is 12 and our son, Josiah, is 8.  Some things that we enjoy doing as a family are hiking trails, playing Lego bricks, and eating ice cream while watching Pixar/Disney movies.

Prior to having the privilege to serve in ministry vocationally, I served in the US Navy, was an electrician for the Union Pacific Railroad, and worked as a corrections officer in the Cowlitz County Jail.

I love golf (although I'm not good at it and sometimes wonder why I pay money to be frustrated for a couple of hours).  I also love photography and videography as a hobby for the church.  You can watch a few vlogs HERE.

Thanks for taking some time to check out Alliance Bible Church online.  I hope to connect with you soon.

When asked where she grew up, Sue usually says “Everywhere.”  She was raised in an Air Force family and then married an Air Force man.  She and Eric have been married for 30 years.  They have traveled the world and finally settled here in Hillsboro in 2000.  They have been attending Alliance since 2011.  

Sue loves ministry and getting involved in the lives of other people and loving them for Christ.  Missions are very important to her and she is always willing to go anywhere God calls her.  She can have her suitcase packed in less than an hour and is up for any adventure.

She is one of the minority in the Pacific Northwest, coffee is not her caffeine of choice, but loves a good cup of tea.  She can be bribed with a chai latte of any size.
