    GW Dameron

    Pastor GW Dameron is a native Virginian. He was born and raised in the Fredericksburg area where much of his family still live. A graduate of Christopher Newport University, he obtained a Bachelor of Science in biology in 1991 while competing for his college’s cross-country and track and field teams. After college, Pastor GW moved to North Carolina for the next six years. Many of those years were spent pursuing a professional career in distance running. As an athlete who didn’t have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, athletics was the god he served. In December 1995, he received Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior. “I grew up with an intellectual knowledge of Jesus,” says Dameron, “but I had no relationship with him. I had no idea what it meant to live my life for Christ.”In 1997, Dameron moved to San Diego, CA, and soon after felt the call to ministry. While attending Bethel Seminary, Pastor GW served in a variety of ministry roles gaining valuable experience. In 2000, he was also given the opportunity to serve as a chaplain to the athletes and coaches competing at the Olympic Track & Field Trails in Sacramento, CA. Pastor GW is a bi-vocational pastor. He works in the pharmaceutical research industry. Relying on both the Biblical and historical precedents established, he approaches ministry as a calling instead of a job and does not take away from the church resources unnecessarily. Pastor GW has been married to his wife, Carrie, since 1999. They have three daughters
