Local Leaders

Jon Strain

Area Director for Search in Idaho since 2002. Raised in Montana, Jon earned a BA (Speech) at Idaho State University and Master of Divinity at Western Seminary, Portland. He has served in a pastoral role with college students in Utah, a church pastor in Utah and Idaho, and now considers himself “a pastor to the spiritually disenfranchised” in the Boise area. Jon trains men up in matters of the heart and mind, helping them take the next step toward God. Jon compatibly exudes a style that one participant described as “fun, open, friendly and serious-minded.” He is “on tap” for personal meetings and group leadership in most any setting.

Pam Strain

Pam joined Search Boise, fall of 2013. Raised a farmer’s daughter in Nebraska, she earned a BS (Social Work) at University of Nebraska- Kearney. Those who know her best describe her as empathetic, wise, shepherding, encouraging and easy to be with. Serving a mentoring/pastoral role with college students, she turned her attention full-time to the development, nurture and education of four sons. A recent empty-nester, she has turned her focus to share with women in the Boise area, using these same core strengths. She is often heard describing herself as “a spiritual cheerleader encouraging women take their next step towards God.”
