Janine Metcalf absolutely loves pastoring people. It’s as if God has pulled together all of her life experiences, education, and God-given gifts and poured them into the call to shepherd Richland Church of the Nazarene. She became a Christian while covering the Iranian hostage crisis for NBC news in 1979–81. For ten months she interviewed Reverend Earl Lee whose son was one of 52 American hostages held in Iran. The Lee family's faith throughout the ordeal made an incredible impact on Janine's life. Before the Americans were released, Janine attended the Lee's church in Pasadena and committed her life to Christ. Since that time, she stepped away from news reporting, received her master's and doctoral degrees, spent six years teaching in the Philosophy and Religion Department at Point Loma Nazarene University, produced an hour-long documentary about men and women serving as partners in ministry in the Church of the Nazarene, co-authored the Nazarene spiritual formation textbook, The Upward Call, and has written articles for several Christian publications. Janine is an ordained elder who has preached in camp meetings, churches and retreats throughout the U.S. She also ministered as a staff pastor for nine years at Pasadena First Church of the Nazarene and for a decade as lead pastor of El Cajon Church of the Nazarene. Janine, her husband Ed, and their H-U-G-E lovable cat named Tiko reside in Richland. Their eldest son, Curt, his wife Kristi and grandchildren Connor,Cole, Keira, and Kensie live in Sacramento, CA. Their youngest son, Kevin, and his wife Erin, live in Santa Clara, CA.

Brianna has been the Worship Pastor at Richland Church of the Nazarene since November of 2016. At an early age, she was always involved in music at the church she attended and later on felt the call from God into worship ministry. As someone who grew up in the church, she knows that worship isn’t just songs we sing, but rather a way of life. With that in mind, she wanted to pursue a degree not just in music, but also in worship. She graduated from Olivet Nazarene University in May of 2015 with her Bachelor’s degree in Music Ministry. Brianna’s heart for ministry is to invite people to engage in worship, give glory to God, to build each other up spiritually, and to include every age group into worshipping our Creator. She also strives to teach and remind people that worship isn’t just something that happens on a Sunday morning; but worship happens when we glorify God by how we live our lives. Brianna met her husband Andrew Hickman at Olivet, and they have been married since October 2016. She and Andrew quickly moved to Richland, WA soon after they were married to start their new life together and to answer God’s call to serve at Richland Church of the Nazarene.
