Pastor Jeff Gatten was born in Sacramento, California. At age 12 his family moved to Lynnwood, Washington where they attended Open Door Baptist Church and it was under the preaching of Dr. Ken Blue that Jeff was saved on Oct. 16, 1983.
After two other moves the family located to Phoenix, Arizona. There Jeff found his wife Paula at Thomas Road Baptist Church and was married there in 1994. That same year the Lord led Jeff and Paula to join Cornerstone Baptist Church pastored by Terry Randolph. Together they served faithfully and in 2007 they, along with their two beautiful daughters Natalie and Sarah enrolled at Heartland Baptist Bible College in Oklahoma City. After graduating in 2011, Jeff and his family pastored Faith Baptist Church in Meeker, Colorado. In 2014 the Lord saw fit to move Jeff and his family back to Phoenix, Arizona and serve at Cornerstone Baptist Church.
The Lord has now led his family to serve as Pastor of Fairhaven Baptist Church.
