Lead Pastor

Hi, I’m Dave.  My wife Karen and I have been Lead Pastors at Prescott Life Church since 2008.  We are relational style Pastors who emphasize people over process.  We love being part of a grace-filled community of Jesus followers who welcome people just as they are. Karen has a passion for Children and Christian Education. Our two grown children live in the Phoenix area with their spouses and are serving God with their talents and calling. When I’m not at church you can usually find me watching my beloved Minnesota Vikings football team or spending time with my close extended family.  Little known fact about Dave: I wrestled in college at - get this - 108 pounds! Karen is a big Seattle Seahawks fan.

Associate Pastor

My name is Steve. My wife Candace and I have been at Prescott Life Church since 2015. Pastor Dave was my youth pastor almost 4 decades ago in Washington State and he lead me to salvation in his youth group! Praise the Lord! We have lived in and called Prescott home for over 20 years. We are involved in many areas of the church including pastoral ministry, leading a small group and through outreach in the Prescott community. My heart is for serving in our church, through missions, teaching the Bible and the power of the Holy spirit.  We have a passion for reaching our community with the love of Christ in tangible ways. We have 3 adult children with 2 in college. Each of our kids have been able to travel overseas with us to do missions work in both India and East Africa. Interesting, but not so fun fact: God used a slip and fall from a roof leading to a broken heel to lead me into more full time ministry. Sometimes God uses different ways to get our attention doesn’t He!

Youth Ministry

Hi I'm Matt and this is my wife Shayla. We are the Youth Pastors at Prescott Life Church. We have a passion to help young people know Jesus and live up to their full potential in life.  In a crazy world of social media and peer pressure, it is of utmost importance that we help our students ground themselves in a vibrant relationship with Jesus Christ. We believe in the power of God to change lives and our daughter Riverlyn is an infant cancer survivor thanks to our miraculous God! When not in church Matt can be found enjoying being a Dad or swinging a golf club as hard as he can!
