Our Staff

We are very fortunate to have a great team of folks on staff. Each and every one fills a vital role in the life of our church and together, they keep this place humming.

Rev. Dr. James L. Wallace


Jim, his wife, Anne, dog, Mollie, and cat, Fergie moved to Tigard from Iowa to join us in 2014. He has 20+ years of experience as a head pastor and a passion for Rise Church’s mission of Lifting Our Community. He’s also a Hawkeye fan, but we don’t hold that against him.

Lynn Scroggin

Office Coordinator

Lynn joined us in 2018 and it took her no time at all to get us whipped into shape. Besides the typical office duties, Lynn coordinates our building use and event space, keeps the church calendar current. Call the office or email Lynn (lscroggin@risetigard.org) to discuss building use.

Terri works with Rise children, youth and families, nurturing their faith and involvement in the life of the church. Working part-time with Rise Church, Terri's main job is that of an Early Childhood Mental Health Specialist, primarily working with Head Start. Terri is an ordained Presbyterian Church (USA) pastor and has also received her Master’s Degree in Counseling from Oregon State University.
