Our Pastor

Pastor Dave joined Kfirst as Lead Pastor in April of 2009.  Dave’s vision is to see Kfirst as a vibrant, life-giving community that makes it simple for people to find and follow Jesus.  He loves teaching and preaching, and his passion for ministry is based on healthy relationships.

Pastor Dave and his wife, Anne, have been married for over 24 years and have three children: Camryn, Ethan, and Josh.

Deciding to follow Jesus is a big step and one we believe is best celebrated in community. We would love to hear about your decision and celebrate with you by sending you a small gift!

Mark your calendar for our annual Christmas Candlelight service on Friday, December 23 at 6:30. On Christmas morning, we will be having an online-only experience as we wrap up our current series RSVP and celebrate the closing of this year.

Next Gen

We are looking to expand and grow our teams with people of all ages and walks of life. Even if you doubt whether serving on the Next Gen team is a fit, we would encourage you to fill out a serve card and Pastor Carissa will reach out and begin the conversation of helping you find your fit on the Next Gen Team. You taking one simple step could make your name a name to remember on the hearts of our next generation – a generation that we are raising up to be firm in their foundation in Christ and their unique callings. A generation that we care for and believe in. A generation worth changing our culture for.

Current Series:


What Is an RSVP? The term “RSVP” comes from the French expression répondez s’il vous plaît, meaning “please respond.” If RSVP is written on an invitation, it means the host has requested that the guest respond to say if they plan to attend the gathering. For the fourth year in a row, we look to a group of letters often referred to as the “Prison Epistles.” These letters were sent from Paul while he was in prison to a handful of churches. To the church in Colossae, he sent them a letter that was an RSVP. It was his invitation to “please respond” to the transformative work of Jesus. The same invite given to the Colossians is now given to us. It’s up to us to say “yes” and accept the offer of a life change in Christ.
