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. 

New to Following Jesus?

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!

Let us know!

Current Series:


Do you remember when you first started reading “chapter books”? It was that transition in growth when you moved from picture books to a simple story line to a narrative that was a bit more complex that it needed chapters to separate the tale into incremental bits so that the reader can take in all that the story provided. Chapters helped us the reader step into the journey the author intended to lead us into.

This is how we view the life that Christ has called us into. So if salvation is “chapter 1” of our new journey in Christ, then “chapter 2” is our next step in spiritual formation. In our next series, we are wanting to help encourage Kfirst to look to step forward into a new chapter of their own growth (discipleship) in Jesus. If we want to be a people to want to “be with Jesus so that we can become like Jesus,” then we need to look for a next step (or chapter) to begin. Join us as we discover what your “chapter 2” needs to be in your spiritual walk.



Water Baptism is a beautiful moment that outwardly demonstrates a person’s inward desire to follow after Jesus. And it is one of the best next steps for a believer who has never been baptized. Our Next Baptism is happening on April 14!

My Story

Stories are important for two reasons. First, they put into word what we’ve experienced to form gratitude in our hearts. They help us both appreciate and articulate the goodness of God. Second, the become the vehicle to reveal to others God’s faithfulness in the past. Stories remind us that God has been working in the past and He continues to work today.

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.
