At Manchester Baptist, we have a pastor and deacon team who oversee the spiritual life of our church. The deacon team consists of maturing disciples who help shepherd the church with Pastor Dave. Together they discern the direction God is leading the church…
Pastor Dave Scafide, D.Min.
Dave is a Maryland native, and began to follow Jesus at 9 years of age. He and his wife Joy moved to Manchester in 2010 to take on the role as pastor. Since then, Dave and Joy's family has tripled with the addition of four very active boys. Often you can find Dave hiking on one of the numerous local trails (he seems to be favoring Hashawa lately) or working on a new project at his old farmhouse. Dave holds a Master of Divinity from Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary and a Doctor of Ministry from Portland Seminary. His passion is growing disciples who are biblically sound, and are engaged in reaching their neighbors for Christ.
