DONNA MCCLINTOCK

assistant to the Pastor / office manager

Hi, I’m Donna McClintock. I am the Assistant to the Pastor and all-around “beck-and-call-girl” for the church. I have been blessed with three beautiful children: Carlye, Cory, and Michael; and they have in turn blessed me with six beautiful grandbabies: Ellie, Conor, Brady, Katelyn, Jackson, & Emery. My children and I moved here from Texas in 1989 and began attending Community Church shortly thereafter. I have served and worked at the church since July of 1991.  This church is my family and I have been blessed by them every single day in so many ways and am so grateful that I have been given the opportunity to serve God and his body in this manner in my life. I enjoy singing and leading worship, which I do here at the church. I enjoy spending time with my children and grandchildren.   I enjoy reading, especially cookbooks, and trying new recipes. I recently tried my hand at gardening (the jury is still out on that one) and I love spending time with my beautiful family and friends. 

nicole Iskades

Director of Children's Ministry

Hi, my name is Nicole Iskades, and I am living a beautiful Grace story. In May 2020, God opened a door for me to study and learn under the amazing Pat Barnes. During my internship, I was abundantly blessed with a passion and calling to work with children. I have a heart of service and I truly want what is best for our future generations. I myself only have one son who is my world but the Children's ministry has my heart because in Proverbs it says, "Start children off on the way they should go and even when they are old they will not turn from it." I am currently working on my Bachelor's degree in Christian Ministries and Leadership from Grace Christian University. I have been blessed with an amazing team of volunteers who cherish our Community kids. If volunteering is something that you would like to be involved in, please contact me so we can chat. Other than Community Church Big Bear, which I consider my second home, I love hiking, biking, skiing and most outdoor types of activities, but most of all I love my horses. Thank you and God Bless!

debi bair

nursery supervisor

Hello! I'm Debi Bair and I supervise the Nursery for children 3 and under here at Community Church Big Bear. I have been in Big Bear since 2000 and at Community Church since 2015. My daughter, Nicole Iskades, is the Children's Director and my grandson is involved in the youth program. We love everything about Community Church and are glad you are considering joining our family. God has given me a desire to work with children and they are never too young to learn about Jesus. My husband Ron and I live on a small ranch in Baldwin Lake and share our life with horses, chickens, dogs and Jesus. I enjoy exploring Big Bear on the back of my horse and hiking with my friends. I look forward to seeing you soon.
