Pastor Dana came as our pastor June 1, 2014 from St. Louis, Missouri where he had been pastoring the past 15 years. This is his 9th church in a career that spans 60 years as a pastor and 66 years of preaching. He accepted Jesus Christ as his personal Savior at age 6 and felt the call to preach at age 10. He was called to pastor his first church at age 16. He has three children, one son and two daughters and three granddaughters. His son Robin is married, has two daughters and they live in Phoenix. His daughter Lea is married, has one daughter and they live in Mississippi. A second daughter Dana Lynn passed away at age 23 months with Leukemia. His wife of 54 years is Sandra (Akins) from Independence, Missouri. Sandy cooperates with him fully in his ministry and supports him in every way. She also has a lovely voice and sings special music on a regular basis in the worship service. Sandy is also the church secretary. Pastor Dana and Sandy have a love for people of all ages from babies to senior adults. The messages are Bible based and Christ centered and his theology is conservative. Pastor Dana would love to have you worship with us, and he would love the opportunity to meet you personally. If you have a spiritual need, please feel free to give Pastor Dana a call or drop by the church office.

Lois creates slide and video presentations for each week's service and assists Brent in preparing for each week's service. They both strongly believe in the King James Bible and share a deep passion for hymns. All the glory goes to God for their service.
