Lori Doornenbal

Elder & Administrative pastor & student ministries

Lori was called out of her marketing job in Iowa in order to serve the church. She moved to Washington to attend Northwest University and found Redmond Assembly of God. Twenty-three years later she still loves this church family dearly. She enjoys spending as much time as possible with her husband and two teenagers, and she loves the outdoors.

Johanna Lasher

Office Assistant

Several years ago Johanna left her teaching career of 20 years to try something new. She really loves administrative work and gets a lot of enjoyment out of working behind-the-scenes to help services, meetings, and ministries run smoothly. She and her husband love this church and have been a part of it for many years. They both grew up in the Puget Sound area, and they love spending time together outdoors, watching movies, hanging out with family, and eating good food!
