Meet Pastor Dave

Dave attended Moody Bible Institute and then transferred to Detroit Bible College where he graduated with a B.R.E. in 1972. While attending Detroit Bible College he began his full time ministry with Youth for Christ/Youth Guidance. Then in 1974 he became the Youth Pastor at Calvary Baptist Church in Hazel Park, Michigan where he served until becoming the Senior Pastor at Kaleva Baptist Church here in Kaleva. In March of 2017 Kaleva Baptist became Kaleva Bible Church where he continues his passion to teach the inerrant Word of God in a clear and meaningful way. He is a sports fan (Go Blue!) and really enjoys hunting and fishing as a means of relating to the men of our Church.

He is grateful for his wife of 51 years. Sue is involved in several ministries with our ladies and the children’s S.L.A.M. (Savior, Lord and Master) program.  She is a great blessing to our congregation as well as the community.
