Dave BerrySenior Pastor
Dave Berry has been in pastoral ministry for seventeen years, seven of which as a Senior Pastor. Dave comes to Flagstaff Christian Fellowship from Gresham, Oregon where he had been serving with Gresham Bible Church. Prior to that, Dave led a church plant in a neighboring town. Four years into the plant the Lord provided the opportunity to merge with Gresham Bible Church in 2015.
Jesus called Dave to Himself while he was a college student in a mid-sized, outdoor town in California similar to Flagstaff. A prayerful dream of his was to return to that type of environment and serve a church with a stable residential base while also raising up and sending out college students as healthy, fervent disciples of Christ. Related to that dream is his desire to take his biblical training and offer a “school of theology” within the local church to equip the saints for the work of ministry and raise up future leaders.
Dave has a bachelors degree in Social Sciences with a minor in Mountain Guide Education, a Master of Divinity from Western Seminary, and is currently working on a Doctor of Ministry in Biblical Theology from The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary.
Dave is married to Rachael and they have 5 daughters; Pearl, Sayde, Ginger, Rosie, and April.
