Dave & Karen Groff

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.

Executive and Interim Youth Pastor

My name is Steve. My wife Candace and I have been at Prescott Life Church for the past 2 years. Pastor Dave was my youth pastor more than 35 years ago in Washington State and He lead me to the Lord in his youth group! Praise the Lord! We have lived in Prescott for 17 years. We are involved in many areas of the church including youth, pastoral ministry, leading a home life small group and outreach. My heart is for missions and reaching our community with the love of Christ in tangible ways. We have 3 teenage children that have been able to travel overseas with us to both India and East Africa. Interestingly, but not so fun fact: God used a 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!

Together we have served in full time ministry in Singapore, and fulfilled our call to the Nations through many years of Children's ministry in multiple countries around the world. It is now our honor to serve in Prescott, Arizona, USA!

Our vision is to breathe LIFE into this ministry as we aim to impact every family through the lives of their children. We believe that every life matters, no matter how small!
