Campton Heights Baptist Leadership
Campton Heights Baptist is blessed to have a leadership team who are truly dedicated to Christ and accomplishing His will. Following are brief bio's of our leadership team and their qualifications for ministry.
Pastor Mason Lockwood
Mason Lockwood grew up in the farming and logging communities of Eastern Oregon. He was saved at 21 years of age while reading through the Bible and discovering the good news that Jesus' death on the cross was enough to pay for his sins. A couple of years later he began training for a ministry in tribal church planting. He met his wife Kim while attending New Tribes Bible Institute in Wisconsin and they proceeded to have 4 boys. Mason and Kim spent 8 years living and working for the spread of the gospel among the village peoples of Papua New Guinea. They have returned to the States and have added two boys to their family. Mason and Kim are enjoying pastoring here at Campton Heights Baptist. Mason enjoys carpentry, being in the outdoors, spending time with family, and studying God’s Word.
