Lead Pastor Duane Triplett
During my sophomore year at Nevada Union I felt the call of the Lord on my life for ministry. Not wanting to follow His direction, I spent the next few years running from God’s call on my life. When Jenifer and I were married in 1991, I found a perfect helpmate and co-laborer in ministry. As long as we have been married, we’ve been ministering together, at various ministries, as the Lord called us to do. God has blessed us with two wonderful children, Justin and Cassandra.
After praying for many years for our community the Lord opened the door miraculously to begin a new work in the Brunswick basin area. I believe the Bible gives us all the tools we need to live a life that reflects God’s grace and love. It is through systematic verse by verse teaching that we can unravel the complexities of our day and see the Simple Truth of God’s Word. This new work has truly been a joy for me and my family as we serve our Lord and the people of Simple Truth Northpoint.
Student & Youth Ministry Pastor Isaac Dunn
Isaac and Sara Dunn both grew up in the Grass Valley, Nevada County area. Isaac and Sara amazingly share the same birthday. They both grew up in Christian families and they both attended Bear River High school. After High School Isaac and Sara started dating and were married two years later at the age of 20.
Isaac has been involved in children’s ministry since he was 13 years old. He has worked professionally with children at Crossroads Christian School and at the Squirrel’s Nest School House daycare. Sara joined Isaac in Sunday School when they were dating and has been involved ever since. They have been called to serve the community in which they were raised, with a specific calling to serve children. It is the heart of Isaac and Sara to see children come into a saving, lifelong relationship with Jesus and live out the calling that God has put on their heart.
Worship Leader & Men’s Ministry Pastor Joe Gulas
We have been blessed to be part of what Jesus is doing at Simple Truth NorthPoint. I graduated in 1993 from Placer High School and chose a life apart from Christ, which led to many regrets. Thankfully, I came to know and love Jesus 15 years ago. I was then blessed with my wife Mindi followed by our nine wonderful children. My wife and I have served in ministries in our community over the years and I consider it a privilege to be part of leading God’s people to worship in spirit and in truth.
