  • Woody swenson

    pastor of service and support

    After graduating with a degree in Biblical Theology from LA Baptist College in 1979, Woody served in two Southern California churches as a youth pastor, associate and senior pastor until God opened the door for him to join the staff at Parkside in the summer of 1995.  Woody's drive in ministry is for the local church to glorify Christ, by growing in His grace and knowledge, and to show the love of Jesus to the people of Fallon.  He continues to serve the Lord in numerous capacities here but his greatest joy is serving alongside his wife Noreen in leading PBF worship services.  The Swenson's have three happily married adult children who have brought forth nine fun-loving, beautiful grandchildren!

  • david kittle

    David graduated from the University of Phoenix with a Bachelor of Science in Business and Information Systems.  David and his wife Melody relocated from Rio Rancho, New Mexico to Fallon, Nevada in June 2005.  Having served as youth leaders for ten years in Rio Rancho, they felt the call to be active in the Senior Saints at Parkside Bible Fellowship.  David felt the call to lead the Senior Saints Group when Rick Beach retired.  David became the Lead Usher and also was honored with the roll of Deacon of Senior Ministries.  David says he will stay with Senior Ministries until the Lord says otherwise.

  • monte morrison

    Monte and Amy Morrison's passion is to serve the body of Christ, specifically at Parkside in a number of ways.  Amy's talents have led her to decorating and supporting youth activities as well as doing behind the scenes support.  Monte and his highly extroverted ways have led him to greet the congregation and do announcements for twenty years now and he loves to encourage others.  Being the deacon over outside grounds and socials also allow both to extend their love of entertaining and gardening to be used to welcome visitors and regular attenders alike.

  • mark roberson

    Both Mark and his wife Carole have multi-generational roots as Fallonites.  They were married in 1979 in what was was then First Baptist Church.  After First Baptist merged with Grace Christian fellowship to become Parkside Bible Fellowship, Mark's title changed from trustee to deacon where he continues to exercise his spiritual gift of helps by overseeing the sound room (audio/visual) and maintenance of the church building. By God's blessing and grace, Mark and Carole's joy aligns with 3 John 4, "I have no greater joy than this, to hear my children walking in the truth," as their children and spouses purpose to live for and serve our Lord Jesus Christ.  It is now a great joy and privilege for them to invest in the lives of their 4 grandsons.

  • Dale white

    Dale and his wife Gail began attending Parkside in 1985.  Since then, Dale has been involved in a variety of ministries and continues to serve in an assortment of ways.  Dale has an eagerness to share the faith God has given him, whether in season or out of season (2 Tim. 4:2).  He and his wife have four daughters and now get to experience the joy of being grandparents as well.
