Church Staff

Senior Pastors

Westside is led by our two senior pastors, Ben Fleming and Evan Earwicker, and a Leadership Team. This team-led leadership structure offers accountability and shared responsibility for decision-making at Westside.

Pastor Ben Fleming grew up as a pastor’s kid in the small, southern Oregon town of Glendale. After moving to Klamath Falls to study communications and journalism at OIT, Ben met his wife Rebecca and began serving in ministry in youth, worship, and young adult settings. Since 2016, Ben has served on the Westside Church staff, first as the young adult pastor, and as a senior pastor since 2021. Ben and Rebecca have 2 children, Joel and Jovi.

Pastor Evan Earwicker is a Bend native and started attending Westside in 2002. Evan met his wife Elisa while working at a church in the Portland area from 2004-2006, and moved back to Bend in the spring of 2007. Evan has served on staff at Westside since 2010 in youth, worship, and creative arts, and as one of our senior pastors since 2021. Evan holds a Master of Arts in Ministry and Theology from Fuller Theological Seminary. Evan and Elisa have 2 kids, Clara and Jack.
