Dave oversees the Building & Property, which encompasses the building and all aspects of maintenance. He relies heavily on volunteers who assist in the upkeep and cleaning on a weekly basis, along with numerous small tasks that are performed by many individuals behind the scenes to keep the facility operating smoothly. Dave relies on input from the body not only for the week to week property needs, but also for our future needs and changes as our church grows. We are thankful for the facility the Lord has blessed us with and strive to be diligent in its upkeep and maintenance.
Dave and his wife Flo have been attending the Chapel for over 20+ years.
