First Presbyterian Church welcomes new pastor
Pastor Dave grew up in Forest Grove, Michigan. He and his wife Shannon have two teenage children, Vicki, who will be going off to college this fall, and Craig who will be a 11th grader in high school.
Prior to becoming a minister, Pastor Dave farmed with his father in-law for 13 years in Indiana. In 1999, he felt God wanted him to quit farming and go to college to become a minister. After completing his bachelor’s degree at Olivet Nazarene University, Pastor Dave and his family moved to Hamilton, Michigan so that he could attend Western Theological Seminary. Upon graduation in June 2004, he was called to become the pastor at Fairview Reformed Church in Illinois. He comes to Dalhart, to begin his fifth year in ministry. During his leisure time, Pastor Dave enjoys NASCAR, jet skiing, downhill snow skiing and riding roller coasters.
There will be a pot luck dinner after Sunday Service this Sunday August 2nd.
