Lance Wigton

Communications Pastor

My Family: My wife, Angie, and I have three daughters – Meghan, Abbie, Sofie. One Son-in-law, Dylan, is married to Meghan.

My Story: I was born on a Sunday and by the next Sunday I was already attending church. My dad was the Senior Minister at Sandpoint First Christian Church. I was baptized at age 8. I met the love of my life, Angie, in college in Moscow, Idaho. We moved to Post Falls and after the birth of our third daughter, I got a call from Lydia Grubb about a church plant that was starting in the area. That church was eventually called Real Life Ministries. Before coming on staff here, I sold Foretravel Motorhomes and opened the Mongolian BBQ in Coeur d’ Alene.

Favorite verse: “But if we are living in the light, as God is in the light, then we have fellowship with each other, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, cleanses us from all sin.” 1 John 1:7 NLT

Food: Steak, please and thank you.

Quote: “Never, never, never give up.” Winston Churchill.

Exercise: Looking for the Remote.

Smell: The smell of pipe smoke, in the distance and wet grass ten minutes before game time at Memorial Field in Sandpoint.
