Welcome to the David’s Community Bible church website, thanks for stopping by.
I am blessed to be the pastor of a great and Godly church: David’s Community Bible Church, the husband of the most beautiful and talented woman in the world: Tammy, and father of 3 of the best and most amazing kids: Gabrielle, Benjamin, and Emily. But most of all I am blessed to know and serve my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ who loved me so much He died to forgive me of all my sins, and rose to give me new life in Him.
I was born in North Hampton MA and grew up as a PK (Pastor’s kid). At age 5 I accepted Jesus as my Savior after a Sunday school lesson taught by my mother. My wife, Tammy, and I were married in 1996 at Good Tidings Bible Camp in Cornwallville, NY at the very place we first met at age 13.
In 1994, I felt called by God into full time ministry while on a missions trip to Quito, Ecuador. This calling led Tammy and I to Columbia Bible College in Columbia, SC where I received my BA in Pastoral Studies and MA in Bible. While I went to class Tammy worked full time at The Salvation Army where she was Director of Public Relations. After graduation I received the call to be the Assistant Pastor of Youth and Family at New Monmouth Baptist Church in Middletown NJ. Three months before I started we had our first child Gabrielle Grace in South Carolina.
I was a Pastor at New Monmouth Baptist for 10 years. While we were in Middletown we had our son Benjamin Allan on April 30, 2001, and Emily Lynn January 2, 2006. I transitioned from Youth Pastor to Assistant Pastor and started a new service for young families. At NMBC I earned my Masters of Divinity from Trinity Seminary.
In 2008 I became the Senior Pastor of First Congregational Church in Chester NJ were I served for 6 years. During our time there we saw amazing things happen. The church grew, people were saved and many people grew in their relationship with Christ. July 2014 I was called to be the Senior Pastor of David’s Community Bible Church. My family and I are excited to be part of the amazing things God is doing at David’s and in the Millersburg area.
My greatest passion is to preach and teach the Word of God, equip God’s people for service and reach the lost for Jesus Christ. During my spare time I’m currently working on my Doctorate of Ministry at Westminster Theological Seminary. My interests include reading, spending time with the family, & watching/playing sports.
If you are looking for a church that stands on the Word of God and loves people like Jesus, we would love to have you visit with us Sunday mornings at 10:15. And please feel free to email me below with any comments or questions. I would love to hear from you. God Bless!

Associate Pastor — Youth Ministry
Danny: “At a young age I put my faith in Jesus to be the Lord of my life but it wasn’t until after high school that I fully realized the depths of the gospel. I became aware of how undeserving and utterly hopeless I was and I was amazed that God would still pour out His grace on me. This led me to a place where all I wanted to do was serve Him and go where He wanted me to go.”
In the fall of 2000, God led Danny to Lancaster Bible college where he graduated with a Bachelors Degree in youth ministry. Shortly after, he began serving as a youth pastor at a church in Palm Bay, Florida. In May of 2013, after nine years in the same ministry, Danny and his wife Megan were led by the Lord into a pastoral role at David’s Community Bible Church. His heart and passion is for the church to be a place where people are changed by the truth from God’s word and where the gospel is lived out.
When Pastor Danny is not studying, teaching, or hanging out with the youth, he is spending time with his wife, Megan, and his children Jaden and Ava. He also loves fishing, coaching, and watching football. Some of his favorite authors include C.S. Lewis, RC Sproul, and John Piper.

Associate Pastor — Music and Worship
Christian House: “My wife Alexandra and I had been praying for two years to find the right ministry opportunity we could pour our hearts into. Even before we were married, we both knew the Lord was calling us into full-time ministry, we simply had not found the right fit just yet. I grew up in Bozeman, Montana and lived there the majority of my life. My wife grew up in Defiance, Ohio and we met in Atlanta at a nutrition conference in 2008. Alexandra and I have a deep passion for the Lord and are excited to pour our lives and passions into ministry as well as seeing people fall more madly in love with Christ.”
Christian and Alexandra have several years of church and ministry experience in various settings. He has served as a youth worker, worship leader, and creative arts director in the ministries he has partnered with over the past twelve years. He served with a young, growing church named Journey Church in Bozeman. This church was extremely evangelistic and energetic. Five years after Journey Church was planted they were averaging over 1,200 people per weekend. The creative arts director agreed to mentor and train Christian to be a more effective worship and music leader. Journey had a large worship team and often employed strings and several creative arts during their worship such as painting and even sand art. Christian led the weekend worship services twice a month before moving to Defiance, Ohio. After getting married, Christian and Alexandra served in several capacities at Alexandra’s home church of Emmanuel Baptist Church. They served and led the music team on several occasions and led the youth for a season. The Houses moved back to Montana where Christian worked on his bachelor’s degree and was mentored by the pastor of Grace Bible Church in Bozeman. Christian completed his bachelor’s degree in communications from Thomas Edison State College. He is currently pursuing a master’s degree. Christian and Alexandra have four children, Josiah, Sophia, Landon and Estelle.
