Our Staff

The ministries of Bible Baptist Church are supported by a dedicated staff that is committed to serving.

JAMES KIESEL — Christian School Administrator
Jim Kiesel was appointed Principal of the Church’s Christian School ministry in 2005 after retiring from the US Navy as a Senior Chief Petty Officer. In 26 years of faithful military service to his country, Brother Kiesel acquired numerous military qualifications and extensive leadership experience — including those of Master Training Specialist, Instructor, and Military Freefall parachutist/jumpmaster (with more than 1,500 parachute jumps to his record). The highlight of his naval career was his numerous training operations (and many adventures) with the U.S. Navy SEAL teams. Jim and his wife Trish have six children. They joined Bible Baptist Church in 1999 after being transferred to NAS Whidbey from San Diego, CA. Jim’s life was eternally changed in 1991 when he accepted Jesus Christ as his Lord and Saviour. Though his career and hobbies have been exhilarating and enjoyable, there is nothing more rewarding or exciting to him than living life within the Lord’s will and being used of Him to be a blessing to others and to positively impact young lives for Him. You may contact Brother Jim by E-mail at his School Office, or by phone at 360-679-6497.
