About Our Pastor

Dave came to know the Lord and was "saved" through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, at the age of 16, during a revival that was stirring among the youth in town. Soon thereafter, he started sensing that the Lord was calling him into the ministry. 

He attended and graduated from Circleville Bible College with a B.A. in Christian Ministry in 1986. Soon after he served for a short term as an assistant pastor in the Wesleyan Denomination in Fort Wayne, Indiana. 

At the end of 1989, Dave and Tia felt that it was in the Lord’s will for them to return to their native Lancaster to begin the founding of a church work there. Starting out as a home Bible study fellowship they later joined with another Christian brother and his home fellowship and established and incorporated a new church, which they co-pastored together until December of 1997.

Then believing it to be in the Lord’s will and timing, in 1998, Dave branched out and founded a brand new ministry work called Word of Promise Family Church.

Dave is married to Tia, his wife of 30 years.  They have one son, Chris.
