Sarah Riley

Lead Pastor

Sarah moved to Nampa, Idaho in the summer of 2011. She was born and raised in Oklahoma where she met her husband, Stephen, while serving as a ministerial intern at a local church. Stephen is currently the Old Testament Professor in the School of Theology and Christian Ministry at Northwest Nazarene University.  They have four boys, Jonathan (12), Benjamin (9), Micah (6) and Gabe (3).

Sarah graduated from Southern Nazarene University in 2000 with her bachelors in Christian Education followed by an MA in Theology in 2002. She then served part-time at Trinity Church of the Nazarene in Duncanville, Texas, as an Associate Pastor for nine years.

Sarah has also worked in the senior industry, directing an independent living community – an experience she values for the people she met and served and for the lessons she learned in leadership and management.

Sarah is excited to now dedicate her time fully to both her family and ministry for God’s kingdom. Her favorite passage is Ephesians 3:17b-19, “And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.”

Sarah loves reading, crafting, watching movies with her husband and cuddling up with her boys to read.
