Terry J. Baird

Lead Pastor

Pastor Terry has served in Napa at Creekside Community Church since January of 2003.  Born in Canada - which explains many things about his sense of humor as well as his ridiculous politeness.

Mark Seelye

Director of Musical Worship

Mark was born and raised here in Napa, and as a "church kid" began his relationship with our Lord as a child at home and in Sunday School. Always interested in music, he began playing drums and guitar in youth groups as a teen. As a Cub Scout his den visited a local nursing home, interacting with the residents and passing out checkers games. This planted a seed of ministering in care homes with music which began as a teen and continues today.

Mark and his wife Valeriehave been married 41 years with two adult children and an eight year old grandson.
