Welcome to Nampa First's Student Ministries! 


 Christ-follower. Husband. Father. Son. Brother. Seahawks fan. Pastor Brian Loeber works hard and has tons of fun filling all these roles in his life.

As a Christ-follower, Brian felt called to ministry before entering high school while at NYC in Toronto, Canada and has been blessed with tons of adults and mentors who have helped shape him into the person God created him to be.
As a husband, Brian is married to Ashleigh, who is a teacher in the Nampa School District. Her family owns LeBaron’s Honker Café in downtown Nampa, which Brian loves...but his waistline does not! Brian and Ashleigh love playing games together at coffee shops like Flying M and think it’s better to lose than to tie! They also love Bears, Beets, and Battlestar Galactica.

As a father, Brian and Ashleigh have two kids, Brileigh (08.03.11) and Bralen (03.08.13), who keep them on their toes with their fun and spirited personalities. Brileigh enjoys dance class and Frozen while Bralen enjoys putting things in his mouth and imitating his sister’s temper tantrums.

As a son and brother, Brian is very proud of his family. They live primarily just south of Seattle, in Puyallup, Washington. His mom works for the Nazarene church in Puyallup and his dad teaches middle school math. His sister is currently pursuing a career as a pharmacist.
Finally, as a Seahawks fan, Brian is a diehard! Clad in his white Russell Wilson jersey, Brian enjoys watching his Hawks lay waste to the rest of the NFL, especially the 49ers! That first franchise Super Bowl? Yeah, he’s still basking in the glow of sweet, sweet victory.
If you have any questions about NFC Student Ministries OR the Seahawks, please don’t hesitate to give Brian a call or shoot him an e-mail...unless you root for the Niners. :)



    Stacie Ballard is the Associate Pastor of Youth and Young Adults here at Nampa First and she works with both the youth and young adults. She is passionate about team style ministry as well as intergenerational relationships within the Church. Stacie has a love for youth and young adults and is glad to be a part of the Nampa First Staff. 

Stacie grew up just outside of Seattle, WA and received her Bachelors Degree in Christian Ministries with a Minor in Youth Ministry from Northwest Nazarene University. While in college she spent some time at European Nazarene College in Busingen, Germany where she was able to do one of the things she loves most, to travel. While at NNU Stacie interned under Nate Roskam (one of our previous pastors on staff) for two years.

After completing her Undergrad Degree she then went on to receive her Master's Degree in Youth Ministry through Memphis Theological Seminary/The Center for Youth Ministry Training. While in Memphis Stacie met her husband, the love of her life, and they moved back here together in June 2014. Brad currently works with the marching band at Boise State while pursuing his MA in Music Education. Stacie and Brad are the proud parents of two goofy dogs that always keep them on their toes and love being a part of the Nampa Community.
