Meet Our Staff

  • DAN JONES | co-Pastor


    I first came to Mountain View in 2015 with my best friend and wife Sara. Since joining the Mountain View family, God has blessed us with FOUR vivacious daughters. As you can imagine, I spend a great deal of my time playing hide and seek and having tea parties. I love being a dad! I also count it a great privilege to serve Mountain View as a pastor. Following Jesus is incredibly fulfilling, and I am especially passionate about bringing the hope-filled story of scripture to life for people. I consider myself a life-long learner; I completed my Doctor of Ministry degree from Asbury Theological Seminary with a focus on biblical preaching and leadership. I earned my Master of Divinity degree from Fuller Theological Seminary, and I attended Seattle Pacific University with an undergraduate degree in Educational Ministry. In my free time, I enjoy reading (especially biographies and works of theology), watching inspiring or thought-provoking movies, and being with people. I believe everyone has a story to tell and I would love to hear yours over a cup of coffee or tea.

  • Amanda king | office manager


    Amanda has been around Mountain View her whole life, and she truly loves this community. For college, Amanda attended Western Washington University where she earned her Bachelor's degree in Psychology. After college, she worked a number of office jobs, and she is thrilled that God brought her to work at MtVPC where she can use her talents for ministry.  When she's not at the church, you can probably find Amanda outside on some sort of adventure! Fun fact: there is always candy at Amanda's desk because she likes sharing. Feel free to stop by during the week to fact-check!

  • dustin willetts | worship director


    In addition to being the director of worship here at MTVPC, Dustin Willetts is one of the most in-demand conductors of the Pacific Northwest, currently directing the Kulshan Chorus, Cantabile Chamber Choir, and the Sno-King Community Chorale. He is also a performing member of Choral Arts Northwest in Seattle, and has served on the board of directors of the Seattle Children’s Chorus for the last decade.

    As an artistic director, Willetts has received critical praise from around the world as he blurs the lines between various artistic mediums. His performances tell stories and take audiences on a journey. He was recently awarded the Whatcom Peace Builder Award as well as the Ken Gass Community Building award for his “Breaking Silence” project, about the abuse, indignities, and harm done to women. "It’s not for the faint of heart, but it’s a concert that must be heard. My duty as an artist is to augment the lives of my ensemble members as well as to inspire, educate, challenge and entertain my audience.”

    With a passion for education and lifelong learning, Willetts is a frequent adjudicator and clinician throughout the Pacific Northwest and describes those events as, “My absolute favorite thing to do!” When not working with choirs and orchestras, Dustin can be found performing as an instrumentalist (saxophone, guitar, and percussion) for various shows and sessions. He has conducted in over 20 countries, some favorites being Norway, Croatia, Slovenia, and Bulgaria. In those brief still moments between the adventures Dustin is rumored to be found sipping on something brewed while enjoying the beauty of Camano Island.

  • Kris mason | choir director


    Kris has served as a music educator and church musician for the past 39 years. She considers it a great joy to work with musicians of all ages. She took her first church choir job in Seattle a year before she completed her music studies at SPU. Since that time, she's enjoyed teaching music in the public schools, serving as the founder and artistic director of the Seattle Children's Chorus, and participating in the worship life of churches she and John have attended. Kris is passionate about the body of Christ first and foremost being a worshiping community. For Kris, it will be a privilege to serve both Joy Express and Celebration Singers, enabling these ensembles to lead Mt. View in its worship life together.
