   Theme: Survival Men 

So the Lord commanded us to follow all these statutes, to fear the Lord our God for our own good always and for our survival, as it is today. Deuteronomy 6:24 NASB

These words of God still hold true for us. God is always faithful to provide the direction and guidance we need for walking through challenging times. Come join us as we discover God’s way to survive and even thrive in all circumstances.

Men of all ages are welcome, including high school aged sons and grandsons.

We are looking forward to returning to our overnight camps in 2021!  Our hope, prayer and expectation is that COVID-19 will no longer be a deterrent to overnight camping.  As always, we will adapt as needed so that we can provide you with an amazing opportunity for fellowship, having fun and learning more about Jesus in the beautiful redwoods at Mt. Gilead.


Pastor Chris Bauer  


With tongue in cheek, I might identify as a survivalist. I have been married to the same woman for 45 years, I have raised three children, I am a grandparent to five grand children, and I have pastored for 47 years in crazy California. But, by the same token, I must also say all of these relationships have been a great source of blessing to me and I thank the Lord for each one.


On the lighter side, I have survived being a Minnesota Viking and Twin fan since both teams' inceptions decades ago. How is that for long suffering?


These days one of my favorite things to do is hike. My wife and I do a great deal of hiking through county, state, and national parks. I love the outdoors and the challenge of a steep and rugged path.

Pastor Chris Bauer serves as Pastor of Discipleship at Santa Rosa Bible Church. 

Pastor Lance Wallace


Lance has been the Teaching/Lead Pastor at First Baptist Church (FBC) of Windsor since 2007. He was saved through the ministry of FBC in 1995 and from there went to The Master’s College and Seminary. 


Lance served as Vice Principal of Grace Community School. After graduation, Lance was the College/Career Pastor at Santa Rosa Bible Church. Lance and his wife, Jill married in 1999 and have 4 children.  He enjoys his family and having outdoor adventures with them.


His greatest joy is preaching the Word, personal evangelism and seeing lives transformed by Christ.
