Growing up as a PK (preacher's kid) Mark never thought he would follow in his dad's footsteps, proving once again it is the Lord who directs our steps.Mark and Katy raised their 4 kids in the Bitterroot and now are blessed with 6 grandkids. They  have been members of the Body at Lone Rock since the first Sunday it met at the Lone Rock school in '94. After serving on the elder board for many years, Mark became the preaching pastor in 2011.  He also runs his own electrical business. Golfing is his favorite way to relax and enjoy God's awesome creation.

Thayne Orton

​thayne@lonerockbiblechurch.com


Thayne was born into a Mormon family in Utah and raised in the Mormon culture; but, in 1995, God graciously opened his eyes and heart to reveal His truth of Jesus - which he loves to share with all he meets.  He and his wife Dianne have a blended family with 5 grown children and 10 grandchildren.  Thayne has been a barber for 44 years.  His favorite Bible verse is John 17:3 "And this is everlasting life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom You have sent".

Russ is a native Montana man.  He and his wife, Shannon, have four boys in western Montana - three of which are married.  Russ is an outdoorsman - and loves to be on the trail somewhere either on foot or on his bike.  He and his wife enjoy being together - that may be on a drive or on foot in the woods. Russ' passion is to help other see and experience the greatness of our God and Savior Jesus Christ. One of his favorite passages in the Bible is I Corinthians 16:13.

Patrick was born and raised in Georgia - so you may occasionally hear him complaining about the cold or driving in the ice and snow. He and his gorgeous Puerto Rican wife, Jennifer, met in college in Florida.  God has blessed he and his wife with five awesome children - 3 boys and 2 girls.  As a family, they enjoy hiking, camping, snowboarding, and just hanging out.    One of his favorite verses is Philippians 1:6.

Randy was raised in Colorado and the Rocky Mountain West. It was at church in New Mexico that he met and married Marsha. Here they learned the initial steps of serving the Lord and were introduced to, and developed a commitment to, worldwide missions. He and Marsha have been blessed to travel the world more than the average Montanan, furthering their understanding of the need for missionary outreach. One of his favorite passages is Romans 10:14b-15.
