Pastor Dave Leenstra

Pastor Dave was born in Bremerton, Washington, and grew up thinking it was normal for the sky to be gray and to see coffee on every corner. Under the guidance of his maternal grandfather, Dave began hiking at a young age and no one has been able to stop him since. On his days off, you would most likely find Dave somewhere in the mountains on foot or bikeā€”that is, if you can find him at all.

Dave studied at Cairn University (BS in Biblical Studies) in Pennsylvania and later Regent College in Vancouver, Canada. Prior to joining the team in Mabton, Dave worked as a youth ministry intern in Bremerton and at Camp Pinewood in McCall, ID as a summer staff lead.

As one of our pastors, Dave desires to help disciple youth toward being biblically grounded, relationally healthy, and excited to venture into the world as young Christian adults after graduation.
