DAvid Bahn, Senior Pastor

I am a follower of Jesus Christ, husband to Diane, father and grandfather. Since 2005 I have served as Senior Pastor at St. John, having served churches in Utah, Arkansas and Texas since 1979. I have a Master of Divinity Degree from Concordia Theological Seminary in Fort Wayne, Indiana, and a Doctor of Ministry Degree from Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasadena, California. I am also an avid amateur photographer. I write a daily blog and regularly post photos on my Facebook page, and occasionally on my photo website: Flowers by God Photos by David.


I join Diane, my wife, in her work with PLI, a ministry dedicated to multiplying missional leaders – something near and dear to both of our hearts. We have offered presentations on Marriage and Ministry Partnership, Missional Leadership, Changing Your Congregation’s Culture, and Missional Living, including presentations in Kenya (together) and the Philippines (Diane) for pastors and their wives.


I believe that Jesus’ gift of abundant life (John 10:10) is lived out in a balanced life of Celebrate-Live-Share (love for God, community with others, and mission to the world). For more about that, click here.
