At Countryside, we use the Leadership Team model for governing the affairs of the church. These volunteers have been chosen and elected from among our membership by our congregation to guide the spiritual, physical, and financial health of our church:
Rod Kotel, Chair
Rod and his wife Lori grew up in the Midwest but met at the University of Oregon where they were married in 1982 on campus. They have 2 college age children, Zach and Sarah, and have been attending Countryside since 2005. Rod currently serves on the Men’s Leadership Team, the WOW Team and participates in the Thursday night Men’s Bible Study. Lori keeps busy working in the nursery twice a month caring for our precious little ones. Rod and his family enjoy spending time in the Bend-Redmond area hiking, golfing, and enjoying the water.
Lisa Jones, Secretary
Lisa and her husband Frank have been members at CCC for 16 years, and live in Sherwood. They have two daughters and two grandchildren. Lisa spent 32 years teaching, and Frank was an electrician for the public school system for 27 years. Lisa is very active at CCC leading Bible studies, with the prayer team and as a Welcome Table host. Lisa enjoys hiking, kayaking, book club, gardening and family time- especially being a grandma!
Susan Skyberg, Member At Large
Susan and her husband Jon have been members at CCC for about 10 years, and live in Newberg. Susan retired two years ago after 42 years as a nurse. She enjoys playing her piano, gardening, reading, and going on family road trips, along with some international travels. Jon and Susan have both been involved in small groups for 20 years and believe that is one of the best ways to know people well enough to share, care and pray for each other. Susan has enjoyed leading small groups at the Wednesday morning women’s Bible studies, along with serving on women’s ministry events and retreats.

They were married at Countryside Community Church and are currently involved at the church in various capacities. Mike sports a new knee which allows him to be active in pickleball.
