In 1982, Pastor Dave gave his life to Jesus Christ. He logged for 16 years and had very little exposure to church. Soon after, he started attending a church in Springfield, Oregon. During that time, he attended Bible School and was involved in many different ministries. When the doors were open, he was there!
Shortly after giving his life to Jesus Christ, he felt a call to be a pioneering pastor. After seven years, Pastor Dave, his wife, Kimi and two young sons came to Bend to establish Bend Christian Fellowship with 9 other people.
Pastor Dave has been very active in the community of Bend as well as serving as President and Vice President for the Bend Ministerial Association numerous times. Over the last 17 years, Pastor Dave’s heart has been to reach the unsaved and the unchurched for Christ starting in Bend and reaching out to the rest of the world. You will enjoy his down to earth and practical messages mixed with a great sense of humor!
