Our Leadership Team

Jeff Wight - Leadership Team Chairman  <<CONTACT ME>>

I was born again as a child of God through faith in Jesus Christ in September 1979. My wife Cynthia and I celebrated our 30th anniversary in April 2010. We are parents of two children, Joshua, age 28 and Katie, age 16. I enjoy Music Theater, particularly when my daughter Katie is involved. I enjoy watching movies with the family, outdoor activities as well as hunting, fishing and golf. I worship at Cascade View Covenant Church because the word of God is preached and for its spirit of hospitality and family. I serve in leadership because I believe that the Spirit of God wants the members of Cascade View Covenant Church to take their spirit of hospitality into the Community and the world and share the love and good news according to Jesus Christ. I hope to help equip the Saints for this task. I believe this is one way Cascade View Covenant Church fulfills Jesus Christ’s Great Commission.

“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I commanded you.  And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” Matthew 28:19-20 (NIV)



Daniel Polka  <<CONTACT ME>>

I am a supervisor at Western Pacific Building Materials in Portland, Oregon.  I have been married to my wonderful wife, Marisa, for 9 years and together we have 4 children: Hailei, Rielei, Hudson, and Rykker.  My family and I have been attending CVCC for 9 years now.  Growing up, my wife and I didn’t go to church much, I went while visiting my Dad some weekends, but never with my Mom which is where I lived most of the time!  My wife and I heard about CVCC from my Mother in Law, who had been attending the church already.  We meet with Pastor Jim one evening and by the following Sunday we decided to try it out.  After our first Sunday service we were hooked and knew this was the place for us.  We decided we wanted to make a difference in the church so we found some ministry options. We both started helping out in the nursery, and I went on to also join set-up team and run the sound board.  I am always willing to serve the church where ever I can.  I recently joined the Leadership Team hoping to make a difference in my life as well as others.


Gail Gunderson  <<CONTACT ME>>

I have been married to Peder Gunderson for 18 years. I am the mother of three children; Emily, Nathan and Grace. I asked Christ into my life as a young child growing up in a Christian home. I am privileged to teach Math and Spanish at Hockinson High School. Peder and I have attended Cascade View Covenant Church for 10 years. I am excited to see what God has in store for Cascade View as we settle into our new location.
