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.

  • Vision statement, "Discovering the fullness of a life-changing journey with Jesus" announced after a months long discovery process.

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.

Blessed to have been Raised in a Christian home in the San Gabriel valley. Moved to Redlands in 1988, and began attending pathway in 1999. It was in 2007, that my bookkeeper career at pathway began; it’s trule been a pleasure to serve our Lord by serving His people.

My family is very important, I’m blessed to be a mom of three and a daughter of a wonderful mother; (unfortunately my father has passed).

My passions are to build homes in the Ensenada area of Mexico, help the homeless and sew. I’m very blessed to be able to use my passions and talents to serve Jesus and share the gospel.

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.
