Kevin Lott

pastor, elder

Kevin and Jennifer (Jenn) married in 2004 and have four awesome children (Kate, Graham, Hollis and Maddox). Kevin graduated from Charleston Southern University in 2003 and Southeastern Seminary in 2009. He served as a student pastor for almost 14 years in churches across South Carolina, where he was also very involved in leading small groups and helping churches develop missions partnerships across the US and the world. Kevin loves anything outdoors, especially hiking and mountain biking. When not outdoors, you can typically find him sipping coffee and making lame jokes that no one else gets.


Polly Hardin  


Polly's primary role with EBC will be to capture stories of God's grace through her gift of photography and help coordinate our volunteer teams. Born and raised in South Carolina, Polly moved even deeper south to Savannah, Georgia to pursue photography at the Savannah College of Art and Design, while also dabbling in a few Bible classes along the way. She has been approved as a missionary through the North American Mission Board. When she's not snapping pictures, Polly enjoys studying the Bible, theology and philosophy. She desires to glorify God with her creative endeavors, alongside serving and loving the people of Portland. Polly loves a well-designed backpack, a hot cup of black coffee and a pair of dirty hiking boots. Anything that involves a boulder or mountain, count her in.

Patrick Grant

pastor, elder

Patrick and Jennifer were married in 2007 and have six incredible children (Jesse, Riley, Kyler, Jacob, Michael and Taegan). Patrick graduated from Georgia Southern University with a degree in Construction Management and attends Southeastern Seminary, getting a degree in North American Church Planting. He has served in the local church as a small group coach and teacher. Patrick loves the outdoors and spending time with his family. He also has a slight (okay, major) addiction with old cars and hot rods.

team member

Jessica and Trevor have been married since 2008 and have three very active little boys: Knox, Brody and Ford. Jessica has a degree in Mass Communications from the University of South Carolina and has loved serving on staff as the communications director of a large church in SC. She is in the approval process to be named as a missionary through the North American Mission Board. Their family plans to move to Portland in the summer of 2018 to be a part of East Bridge Church. Jessica will be handling the administrative/communications needs for EBC and is really excited to get started. She loves to make lists, drink coffee (it's probably already cold) and pretend she's on Food Network while cooking dinner. Her husband would also lament that she is fond of making him do endless DIY projects (he mostly likes it... mostly).
