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:

Prophet / priest / king

There are three main “offices” spoken of in the Old Testament—prophet, priest, and king. Jesus fulfills all three of these roles. Normally, the three offices of prophet, priest, and king were distinct from each other, with no overlap. That is, a king was not a priest or a prophet. A priest did not function as a prophet or a king. And a prophet simply did a prophet’s job without trying to be a either king or a priest. But Jesus Christ perfectly fills all three roles simultaneously: He is the Prophet, Priest, and King, to the great blessing of the world. This series looks these roles that Jesus has fulfilled and still fulfills – He is our Prophet to give us direction, He is our High Priest to free us from shame, and He is our King to give us unity and strength.

Easter 2024

Our culture is big on belief. You could even say there is a belief in belief. Yet moments happen that can shake the foundations of what we believe and calls everything we held onto into question. When that happens, we really have to get to the bedrock of who we are and ask, “What do I really believe in?”

The word “believe” is closely associated with the word “faith.” So when Jesus says, “Believe in me,” what He is really saying is, “Have faith in me.”

This Easter, join us as we look to the cross and resurrection. Come out as we look to Jesus and choose to “Believe Again.”

Good Friday

Kfirst is holding a Tenebrae service on Good Friday, March 29. The word Tenebrae is Latin for “shadows” or “darkness.” It can also be translated as “night” or “death.” The Tenebrae service is a tradition in Christian history that helps us recognize the intimacy of the Last Supper, the tension of Christ’s betrayal and trials, and the power of the crucifixion of our Lord. As we read the scriptures recounting the story of Jesus, we will periodically lower the lights to step into this dark moment and embrace the depth of what happened at the cross. Join us for an evening of song and Scripture reading as we remember the power of Good Friday.

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.

My Story

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.
