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!

Food Pantry

Personal Care Drive
Join us in supporting families in our community by participating in the Food Pantry Drive! Every month, our Food Pantry provides essential food and personal care items to those in need. You can make a difference by helping to stock their supply of personal care items. Simply pick up a shopping list from the Connect Center and purchase the requested items. Drop off your donations on any Sunday Oct. 8 – 29 in the bins located in both the Worship & Ministry Center lobbies. Let’s come together to make a positive impact in the lives of our neighbors.

Current Series:

Speaking from the shadows
Darkness does not discriminate, but neither does the light. So, like a lantern chasing away a shadow, my heart would be that this series would penetrate the darkness of what depression has been doing and bring hope to lives, marriages, and families. It’s time to bring light to a darkness that affects over 18 million adults every year. It’s time to bring hope to a largely ignored topic that claims more lives than homicide. It’s time to normalize vulnerability. It’s time to normalize getting the professional help we need. It’s time to recognize the healing virtue that Christ brings.

A generation that we care for and believe in. A generation worth changing our culture for.

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.
