Our Pastor, Mark Owensby, his wife Linda, live in Port Orchard, his daughter Rachel and her husband Jake live in Tacoma and his son Stetson resides in Port Orchard as well. Mark is originally from Port Orchard and it is fitting that he would share his faith with the local community and his old stomping grounds. Teaching the Word of God is a calling. He is grateful for a place to live out that calling. The church name, The Sound Word Church of Truth represents his desire to stand on the Word without compromise and to teach others to do the same.
Mark owns and operates His Will Trucking Inc as his "tent making" support system. His years of driving semi trucks has blessed him with this company since 2004. Mark has been the President of Celebrate Life, Pregnancy and Parenting Resource Center overseeing this ministry as a viable help to the local community through the Life Center. His wife Linda got involved with Celebrate Life in 1999 and together they stand on the Word to be a voice for the unborn and to extend help to families with children in need with material assistance and referrals.
No doubt a busy life, Mark, Linda and Stetson also play worship for the church service Sunday mornings. Mark leads and plays guitar along with his wife, his son plays base. The church Elder, Wes Gilbertson, also plays with the team and is the drummer! Together since joining the church years ago, they find joy in serving the King in worship and in deed!
We believe the body of Christ is in need of relevancy in the community and seek ways to enter into the local community to bring the love of Christ and the message of the gospel. Looking for a place to fellowship? We invite you to come and see what the Lord has for you.
We are a Bible believing, Bible teaching, standing on the Word of God fellowship of believers...come on in and join us, won't you?
