who we are

Know Grow Show

It's simple. It's short. It sums up how Jesus taught us to live. When we KNOW God's LOVE we can't help but to return it in praise. When we study God's Word and gather together in small groups, we GROW LOVE. As we grow we are compelled to SHOW LOVE to others by serving.

our history

  • On January 22, God brought together 17 people of vision with the expressed purpose of forming a Bible-believing, Gospel-preaching, Southern Baptist Church.

  • When the church was only one month old, a giant step of faith led these middle-income families to purchase the former Grace Methodist Church (at the corner of Washington and Union).

  • Rapid growth soon necessitated stepping out in faith once again. In 1953 the congregation purchased 3 acres of property on the corner of Cypress Avenue and Redlands Boulevard.

  • By December 1954, Temple Baptist was using its new sanctuary; this building is now the Preschool Building.

  • Ten years later, growth again prompted the congregation to begin a building program, and ground was broken in June of 1965.

  • In April 1966, the present Worship Center was dedicated.

  • In 1997, we began purchasing property adjacent to our current location. We now own over 7.2 acres of the 10-acre block where we currently reside.

  • In August of 2003, the name was changed to Pathway Church.

  • Our new office and classrooms on the east side of campus were completed.

  • Pathway focused our mission in the simple statement, "Know Love, Grow Love, Show Love."

  • Pastor Jonathan Jarboe passes the baton of leadership to Lead Pastor Rob Futral.

I was raised in a Christian home attending Christian schools through high school.

I worked at Party Plus for 7 years and Clean Sport for 15 years before God placed me where I am today.

I married my wonderful, hard-working and amazing husband, Brian, in 2001. Together we have four boys (Will, Brandon, AJ and Justin) that God has blessed us with.

I had the pleasure of volunteering at Mission Commons, Inland Harvest and Olive Crest, which I enjoyed very much, until my precious boys took over any extra time I had.

I volunteered in the Preschool ministry here at Pathway for ten years before becoming the Children’s Ministry Director in 2012. I have the privilege of overseeing your kids from babies to fifth grade. Together with all our dedicated volunteers, we create a safe, fun and exciting environment to help kids learn and grow in their faith.

I love God, my family, my job and CHOCOLATE!

I was born and raised in Southern California. I have been married to David for almost 30 years, and we have five grown sons, and 4 grandchildren, who all bring us great joy. I love learning, and earned my B.A. in Organizational Leadership from California Baptist University and I am currently working on completing a M.A. in Leadership and Management from California Baptist University.

I had the privilege of serving on staff at Pathway from 2000-2012 before leaving to work at CBU in Spiritual Life. In my role at CBU, I was responsible for field partnerships, training and developing staff and faculty to lead International Service Project teams around the world, in coordination with our partnership with the International Mission Board and other valued partners. I also facilitated all logistics for the 35+teams we sent out each year.

I am passionate about leading and developing others to be equipped to share the Good News both in the local church and around the world. I love traveling to new places and seeing God’s handiwork and creation, but most of all the people he has created. My favorite pastime spending time with my family, cooking for those I love, and especially playing and reading to my grandbabies.

Redlands has been home since 1988 when I moved here from the San Gabriel Valley. I was raised in a Christian home, accepted Christ in high school but it was not until my father’s passing that ‘woke me up’ to realize I needed to take the step of obedience of baptism and then did so here at Pathway Church January 1, 2000. April 2007 began my Bookkeeper career for Pathway Church, it has been an honor and pleasure to serve this church and community.

My family is very important to me, my wonderful mom lives in Banning, and my three grown children are scattered across the country, Krystle in SC, Louis in Yucaipa with his wife and family and Steve in WI with his wife. A few of the things I most enjoy are family, sewing, gardening, traveling, sea food and serving in the community at the local Cold Weather Shelter for the homeless during the Winter season.

I grew up in England and moved to California in 1990 where I met Janet and we were married (the best day of my life) in 1991, We have two children, Ian (serving in the Navy) and Joy. I have been blessed to share most of my hobbies including running, cycling, triathlon and motorcycle racing with my family. I went to College in England and studied general engineering. I went back to school in 1995 to learn computer aided design and at age 36 I graduated top of my class! Most of my working life has been spent as a mechanical designer and builder. I am in my element building, repairing or designing almost anything. I love my job here at Pathway and feel very fortunate to work along side some very special people.
