Senior Pastor Rev. David Ahlman, MDiv. Being a senior pastor of a large church has its challenges, but also great joys! I work with and lead a very talented group of staff and lay leaders. That is a joy and at times a challenge. But also, I want our church to continue to reach people through the transformational work of Jesus. That’s also a joy and a big challenge! My main job is to help our church do its part in meeting that challenge lead through the power of the Holy Spirit.
