David was called as the our pastor in March 2015. He and his beautiful bride, Regina, are both graduates of Liberty University and served as missionaries in NE Asia from 1993 to 2014 when God brought them back to the US. They have a passion for God’s Word, God’s people and love to share the joy of the Lord with all those they come in contact with. Regina’s blog – ChoosingJoyNow.com – continues to share the excitement they have in their faith.
David and Regina have 6 daughters. Their oldest, Rachel is married and a graduate from Liberty University where she studied Elementary Education.
Torie is attending Colorado Christian University in Lakewood, CO and is studying Special Education. She participates on the worship team and is one of our Children’s Church teachers.
Charis is also attending CCU, where she’s studying English. She is also one of our worship leaders, and keeps everything in the Sound Booth running properly.
Alia is always full of hugs and smiles, and can be found working hard toward her black belt in Tae-Kwon-Do during the week. She is homeschooled, and takes college level classes at the local community college, where she is heavily involved with the local Cru (Campus Crusade) club on the campus. She also plays violin the string orchestras at Mountain Range High School. At church, she helps run all things video related on Sundays, and helps in Children’s Church when needed.
Hanissa joined their family in 2012 from Ethiopia. She is a bundle of energy, and keeps everyone rolling with all kinds of new phrases and random sayings…which they call Hanissa-isms. Kylah joined their family in January 2016 from Shandong Province, China.
Because of their time overseas, the Etters speak Spanish, Korean, and Chinese…and love to experience new cultures, languages, and food! David also loves playing drums (even on Sunday mornings) and golf when he can. You can often find him studying at one of several coffee shops in the area…as he usually has a LARGE coffee cup in his hand.
