DAVID BANKS – FAMILY LIFE PASTOR
Pastor Dave joined the Staff of Millersburg Assembly of God in January of 2015.
Pastor Dave has served in Children’s Ministries for the past 15 years in the Pittsburgh area and brings a wealth of experience in all the areas we were looking to fill.
He will be ministering on Sunday mornings in our Children’s Church Service each and every week. This service takes place following the worship service in the main sanctuary, and is open for children through age 12. There are 3 separate age groups with messages directed to their age levels, and they are: Ages 3-4, Kindergarten – Age 1, and Grades 2-5. Pastor Dave will minister in the Grades 2-5 level. Rest assured, the decision to involve your children or grandchildren is fully optional. In other words, you will be able to remain in the main service, or send your children to one of our Children’s Church Services. All of our workers, paid or volunteer, go through background checks before working with children in any of our ministries.
Pastor Dave also will oversee our growing Wednesday evening ministries; Royal Rangers and MPact Girls Clubs. We have seen tremendous growth in the past few years as children are brought in by parents, grandparents, as well as 3 church vans/buses. Prior to the ministry, we serve a “Family Meal” which is delicious food prepared for the kids and adults who would like to come. The meal begins at 6:30 PM, and is done in time for the various groups to gather from 7:00-8:00 PM.
We are excited to have Pastor Dave and his wife Teresa serving here at Millersburg AG. Their son Zack serves in the National Guard and is also looking to become involved in music ministry. Their daughter Jessica is enrolled at Southeastern University where she is a music major.
If you have children, and are looking for a church with a heart to minister to them, be sure to check us out this Sunday!
