Meet Pastor Dave

Pastor Dave Purdy spent his first 12 years in ministry as a youth pastor. He transitioned to being a lead pastor in 2012 and brings the energy, passion and enthusiasm you’d expect of a youth pastor to his position as lead pastor. His down-to-earth style of preaching/teaching combined with his intense desire to see the Word of God come alive as it’s taught allows him to bridge generations and speak to today’s culture. Whether you have been in church all your life or have been considering attending for the first time, you’ll be able to understand and apply the message to your life.

Pastor Dave studied and received a degree in Bible/Theology with an emphasis on youth ministry from Appalachian Bible College. He married his high school sweetheart Kim and together they have two children: Caleb – a student at Cedarville University – and Kylee – a student in the Northwestern School District.
