Bob Driscoll

Bob

Bob has a long history of trying to address the problems in the lives of people and the communities they live in. In 1971, while in the Navy, he became involved with CREDO (Chaplains Religious Enrichment Development Operation) which focused on Navy personnel with drug programs needing to gain self-understanding, learn to respect themselves and others, accept responsibility for their lives, and develop healthy spirituality.

Bob’s focus changed little through undergraduate and graduate school earning 2 doctorate degrees. It also didn’t change while Director of services at a youth inpatient chemical dependency hospital, Director of services at a psychiatric community hospital, Director of a community family and youth at-risk program, or his last position with the State of Idaho in Integrated Services working to pull organizations together for the betterment of individual families and the communities they lived in.

Today, Bob is currently the vice president of the Board of the CCC that exists to unite Faith based organizations together to impact the community with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. His calling is to demonstrate the love of our caring and compassionate God. Bob’s hope is that various ministries can be recognized and network with each other to be able to help improve the morals and lifestyles of struggling individuals and families in our communities.

I served on the Board for the Christian Community Coalition and past manager of the CDA Press Business Journal. I have been a regular attendee to the Inter Agency meetings.

He also raised funds and built community relationships with “at risk communities” resulting in re-entry programs, internal prison programming, and educational platforms within the California prison system.

Frank has held many executive positions for major automobile franchises over the past three decades. The foundation for this national success was first established with one of Wall Street’s leading brokerage firms, Dean Witter Reynolds (now Morgan Stanley). Prior to this, He entered the private business sector as a designer, builder and owner of many restaurants from California to Colorado.

Throughout his career, Frank has been involved with the Special Olympics serving on its Board of Directors. Recently, he has been selected to be on the Board of Directors of C.U.R.E., a non profit that deals internationally with human rights, The Inland Northwest Fuller Center Housing (homeless), and on the Board of Directors of CCC, Christian Community Coalition of CDA.

Tim Remington

Tim

Tim was born in Riverside, California and moved to CDA in 1968. After graduation from CDA High School in the late 70’s he moved back to California where he met and married Cindy. In 1984 Tim started Pastoring in Loma Linda, California. Cindy and Tim ran a Coffee House called the “Supreme Bean Coffee House” for years and served the streets of San Bernardino. It was there they became interested in the streets and the people that are ignored, those who have problems with drugs, alcohol, and perversion.

In 1985 they began taking people into their home to help them. This has since grown into our Mentor Home Ministry and Good Samaritan Rehabilitation. The street ministry days, from San Bernardino to L.A., taught them more about drugs and alcohol than all the education eve could have. Since that time Tim has received a degree in counseling. The degree has meant less to him than leading an addict to Jesus.

Now Tim’s life consists of Victim Offender Mediation, Family Mediation, Drug and Alcohol Counseling, and directing Good Samaritan Rehabilitation. In addition he is the senior pastor of The Altar in Coeur D’Alene, Idaho.

Cindy and Tim have been blessed with four children. Tim’s love is his family and his Lord; his passion is to worship; and his desire is to show the joy of the Lord to others in all that he does.
