Cheadle serves First Christian Church

Duane Cheadle and his wife, Marilyn, welcomed the chance to return to Grant County, where Duane serves as pastor of First Christian Church.

JOHN DAY - The First Christian Church located at 311 N.E. Dayton announces the appointment of Pastor Duane Cheadle as the new minister.

Duane and his wife, Marilyn are familiar with Grant County. Marilyn was born in Mt. Vernon and both attended county schools. They moved from the area in 1984 and lived in the Central and Eastern United States where they were employed in recreational resort sales and operated a marketing business for several years.

"We have lived in some of the most beautiful places that God created, but we still moved back to Grant County," Duane said.

One of his parishioners recently made a statement about the First Christian Church: We are alive and well. The Cheadles and members invite the community to visit their "little church." The new pastor and his wife are looking forward to meeting old and new friends.
