Meet Our Elders

Mike Miller

My wife and I are both Idaho born and raised. We were high school sweethearts and have been married for 27 years. God has
blessed us with 3 beautiful children, our oldest of whom is married and has given us our first grandchild.
Our second oldest is running the family farm with my dad and we are excited to see what God has planned for his life. Our youngest is in 8th grade at Nampa Christian Middle School. I have been part of Lakeview Bible Church my entire life. My dad has served on the elder board previously and I consider it an honor to serve the Lord while following in his footsteps. My hearts desire is to follow Gods plan for my life and to be a Godly example to my family and those around me. I look forward to serving together at Lakeview and seeing what God has planned for the future of our church. -Mike Miller

Deb and I met and were married while attending Moody Bible Institute. We joined Mission Aviation Fellowship (MAF) in 1993 and worked there until October 2023. During our tenure, we served in Venezuela on the flight line for 8 years and at headquarters the
remaining years. Deb started an Awana program in Puerto Ayacucho where I was the game leader for two
years. I also did church finances in Venezuela (3 years) and in Nampa at another church for a few years. I
volunteered with the youth group for 6 years while our four kids were involved. I also currently serve as a
Love INC financial coach and on the Love INC board. – Darryl Cedergren

Scott F. Guinn

I was born on January 7, 1964, in Tacoma, Washington, the 7th and last child in a mixed family. I attended Tacoma Baptist School, where I accepted Christ in kindergarten at a chapel service where a Gospel magician and ventriloquist was the guest speaker. At age 7, I was baptized. I felt called to be a pastor when I was 8, and this was reaffirmed at church camp when I was 14. I ministered in various capacities as a volunteer for many years, including as a youth minister, worship leader, college group leader, Sunday school and AWANA, etc. I moved to Idaho in 1989 and married Kristi (who was raised in Star) on September 7, 1991. In 2005 I was asked to be the part-time lead pastor at Christian Life Fellowship Boise (where we had been attending for 11 years), and in 2010 I was moved to full-time.
Kristi and I had been unable to conceive or adopt, and we assumed God’s plan was for us to be childless. But then, in June of 2011 (nearly 20 years into our marriage), I received an email regarding a young local woman who had gone to get an abortion but was turned away because she was too far along under Idaho law. She was looking for someone who would be willing to adopt her soon-to-be-born son. Kristi and I were thrilled to offer to be the child’s parents. Our son, Josiah Scott Guinn, was born on October 12, 2011, at West Valley Medical Center in Caldwell. The hospital gave us a room just down the hall from the birthmother. Josiah spent his first night in our room and we took him home the next day. The adoption was finalized on December 15, 2011.
I love God, God’s Word, and God’s people, and I am excited about ministering to His flock at Lakeview.

Scott Riggan

I’m so grateful to be a part of what God is doing at Lakeview Bible Church! 
After graduating from Bible College with a BA in Biblical Studies, I relocated to Nashville to work in the music industry as a full-time songwriter and touring musician. 22 years ago, I moved back to Emmett, and during that time I’ve served as Worship Pastor for two different churches in the Treasure Valley. 
Over the years, I have continued recording and performing concerts around the globe (four continents and counting!), leading worship for churches and conferences as well as coaching worship leaders and teams. To find out more about my music ministry, visit

Erica and i have been married for 10 years. We are former foster parents, with one child of our own on the way. We desire to see every student know God’s love for them, and teach every student how they can respond to that love. We love fellowshipping over dinner, hiking, and photography.
