In addition to leading our church, Pastor Monty serves as the assistant superintendent for the Southern Idaho Ministry Network and they are both a part of the top 300 leaders in the Assemblies of God movement. They are passionate about the lost and desire to make it harder and harder for people of the Treasure Valley and Northern California to go to hell.

LEAD PASTORS

JORDAN & AMANDA HODGES

Pastor Jordan and Amanda are high school sweethearts that were both radically born again and saved out of a life of drugs and addiction. Pastor Jordan started attending CFC in 2007 and joined full-time staff in 2011. They were a part of our second campus launch and pastored that campus for many years until stepping into the lead pastor role where he assists Pastor Monty in leading the church as a whole. They both are evangelists at heart and feel a strong call to reach a generation and build the local church. They have two boys and enjoy being with friends and family, shopping, and traveling together.

CALDWELL CAMPUS PASTORS

ERIC & RACHELLE UNDERWOOD

Pastor Eric and Rachelle have been attending Christian Faith Center since 2009 . They felt God speak to them around 5 years ago to get involved and do whatever the church has need for. They started serving in any way they could from setting up tables to cutting and serving pie. God began to give them opportunity after opportunity until 2017 when they became the campus pastors of our Caldwell Campus. They are passionate about seeing Caldwell changed by the power of God. They have one daughter and are hoping to live out on a ranch with animals one day.
