Craig Goodwin, Pastor

I grew up in Kent, WA and graduated with a degree in business from the University of Washington. If you are a Washington State Cougar fan, take note that I was born in Pullman to Cougar parents. I sensed a call to ministry as part of the college ministry at University Presbyterian Church in Seattle and followed that sense of call to Fuller Seminary in Pasadena, CA.  Before coming to Millwood in August of 2004 my wife Nancy and I both served as Associate Pastors at Clear Lake Presbyterian Church in Houston, TX.  We have two daughters, Noel (15) and Lily (12). I am the author of the book, Year of Plenty and I also enjoy photography. You can reach me at



Kim McGiveran, Children's Ministries Director

 have lived in (Boise) Idaho for most of my life.  I attended the University of Idaho where I received my BS in Child Development.  After working for the YMCA preschools, I returned to college at Boise State University for Elementary Education.  I taught 1st grade in both public and private Christian schools.  My husband, Trevor, and I moved to Spokane in 2007 with our two sons Zachary (5) and Conner (3).  As a follower of Christ, I am honored and blessed to be part of the wonderful staff and church family at Millwood Presbyterian.  I love working together with our Sunday School teachers to help our children grow in their personal relationships with God and His Son.  I enjoy cooking, baking, camping, bike riding, and am excited to grow my first garden in our new home this year!  You can reach me at




Brandon Comella, Youth Ministries Director

I grew up in Sherwood, Oregon before coming to Spokane and attending Whitworth University. Shortly after graduating I married Anna, who I met at Whitworth, and we bought a house in Millwood just down the street from the church. It has been wonderful to work at a church in the community I live in. My background with Young Life and a traditional church setting helps me as we shape a church based ministry, based on a Young Life model. I serve on the Truancy Board for West Valley School District, serve as a coach for the West Valley High School golf team, and head up faith based initiatives as part of the West Valley District Community Engagement.
