Pastor Dave Pierce has been serving at FBC since November, 2006 and has also served 2 other churches (Chicago and Racine, Wisconsin) prior to returning to his home town of Coldwater. Dave graduated from Moody Bible Institute in 1985 with a B.A. in Pastoral Studies. He has lived in Coldwater most of his life and worked in Mortgage Lending and was a Century 21 Real Estate Broker prior to becoming FBC’s pastor.
He has been married (42 years in 2015!) to Karen who works part time as a receptionist for Edward Jones, and together they have 3 adult daughters, and 5 grand-children.
Pastor Dave enjoys music and plays piano, guitar and drums (when necessary) on our church worship team. He reads everything he can about the church and ministry! He has also been active in community groups such as, Noon Rotary Club, Chamber of Commerce and the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life.
Dave’s life verse is 1 Corinthians 15:58, “Therefore my beloved brethren, be ye steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, for ye know your labor is not in vain in the Lord.” The greatest thing about ministry, he says, is helping people take their next step in their faith journey. His favorite word is “Transformation!”
