Dave Kimmel is the senior pastor of Faith Baptist Church. Dave was born and reared in St. Louis County. His family did not attend church throughout his early years. When he was in middle school, a gospel preaching church was started at the entrance of his family’s subdivision. As a result of this young church’s faithful door-to-door witnessing, his entire family was saved. He accepted Christ as his Savior as a sophomore in high school on January 10, 1971. In August of that year, he surrendered to be a preacher of the gospel.
Dave received his Bachelors Degree in Bible with a minor in Biblical Language in 1977. While in college, he met June. They were married during their senior year. Throughout over thirty years of ministry, Dave has taught in a Christian school, been a youth pastor, and a senior pastor. He considers it a tremendous privilege to be in the Lord’s service.
The Kimmels began their ministry in Wisconsin in January of 2009. Dave oversees the many ministries of Faith Baptist Church and Faith Christian Academy. His greatest joy is sharing God’s Word through his preaching and seeing the Lord change lives. June ministers to the women through her Bible studies and women’s ministry activities.
