Our pastor Dave Pierce became a follower of Jesus Christ at eight years old in May of 1975. He grew up in the Assembly of God & Foursquare ministries.
In high school Dave struggled to maintain his walk with the Lord & experimented with the world searching for the latest high. He soon discovered the emptiness of the world & realized he had already met 'The Most High.' In college pursuing a fashion design career Dave heard that inner call of God telling him that 'God had not called him to clothe the outer man with garments perishable but the inner man with garments imperishable.'
Soon thereafter Dave quit college to pursue the call of God in Christ Jesus. In 1992 Dave married his beautiful wife Angel and together they have three grown children. In 1992 Dave & Angel began attending Calvary Chapel West Covina (now Calvary Chapel Golden Springs) under the teaching ministry of Pastor Raul Ries.
There, Dave & Angel soon began to serve & use their God-given gifts to encourage the body. Dave began serving in the letter writers ministry (answering the mail from Pastor Raul's international radio ministry.) Soon Dave began teaching in a home fellowship while also taking Bible College courses at the Golden Springs Bible College. Dave also became a teacher at the Bible College.
While a student in the "Golden Springs Pastoral School" a ministry of the Bible college for those students who felt called to pastoral ministry, Dave & Angel began to pray for the Lord's direction where God would lead his family to plant a Calvary Chapel church.
Through many confirmations Dave & Angel felt the Lord calling them to Northern Colorado & moved out in faith in May of 1997. In September of that same year they started Bible Studies in their home in Fort Collins.
In October of 2014 Dave left his full time job of 25 years as a delivery courier with Fedex Express to become the full time pastor/teacher at Calvary Fort Collins. Pastor Dave is the featured teacher of the radio ministry 'Overflow radio' airing throughout the Colorado Front Range on 89.7 GraceFM & AbbaFatherRadio.com in Hilo, Hawaii.
