The goal: to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the Makah people through the work of the church and outside activities and to raise up strong Makah men to be strong, Christian leaders in their own community.
Winston and his wife, Connie, had been connected to Makah Lutheran Church for a year prior to taking the official ministry position in Neah Bay, Washington.
In 2009, they traveled monthly from Port Angeles, an almost 2 hour drive, to share their musical skills in church on Sundays. Once a month quickly turned to weekly, and within a couple years, when Dave Sternbeck moved his ministry to Alaska, Winston took over the head position at Makah Lutheran.
Winston and Connie strive to serve the Makah community with the hope of Jesus through community outreach to young men, children, and the incarcerated.
