Another reason why I appreciate him is that he has been with our church in Richland for over 30 years. Not many pastors that I personally have heard of have been with the same church close to that long. Most pastors that I see today outside of the Alliance are young and in their 30s, maybe. But regardless of age, Pastor Dave never seems to falter.
My father came from Cambodia back in the 1970s and the church sponsored him and his siblings to come over, and at the head of that was Pastor Dave. It feels weird, but good, that Pastor Dave knew my dad when he was in his early twenties, and he's (dad) now in his mid-fifties.
It is just really nice to have a pastor whom you know has been around for a long time and knows the church inside and out, and most of its congregation, who most have been hear since the early 80s, at least. I hope he stays around for many more years and continue to get in front of the congregation every Sunday and preach. Thank you, Pastor Dave!

I am so appreciative of the way he counsels me and that he seeks out others to help with my needs. I know that he has great vision for our church and its peoples and that he cares for each person individually.
I also want to say that his family rocks too! Darla, Lydia and Jonathan are the best!!! I am so blessed to have them in my life!!!!
May God bless them all in a mighty way!!!! (Even their dog Bowser!!)

it was about Genesis, which i have read more the nonce and most of us are very famailiar with the Adam and Eve story. However his sermon clicked with me and really opened my eyes with resepct to "the fall" and how that relates to us today.
the sermon can be found at
http://www.bedfordco...org/index.shtml and it called The love obstruciton tree.
here's a link to the mp3 file.
in short he refers to how we replaced God at the center of our lives and that it was God's job to detemrine right and wrong and when we took on that job we moved into the center and pushed God out. but listen to the sermon he says it much better then i do. Ever since this sermon i have been seeing and hearing references all over the place the tie back to this Genesis concept, so i have to assume God is speaking to me. So i gfelt compelled to share and to brag a little about my pastor.
