Our Staff

Church Administrator Athena Dickau

The Dickau family, Justin & Athena and their daughters Lexie (9) and Nora (8), began worshipping with Cannon Beach Community Church in 2012. Athena began working as the Church Administrator in April 2020, and couldn’t be more grateful for the opportunity to serve alongside this beautiful church family. Athena received her Masters in Counseling from Western Seminary, and has worked as an administrator for several different businesses over the years. The Dickau clan loves being outdoors whenever possible, soaking in the astounding beauty of God’s creation on the North Coast.

Children’s Ministry Director Trina Robinson

She is also a Board Certified Lactation Consultant. She loves working with infants and children, and is grateful to have this opportunity to serve our young families with children! Walking on the beach with their black lab, Raven, is a joy, except perhaps when it is pouring rain! She also loves gardening, hiking, spending time with family and delighting in the beauty of God’s creation.
