  • DAVID MCDOWELL

    ASSOCIATE PASTOR - Youth and Discipleship

    Pastor David's relationships, personality and approach to life tell you a lot about who he is than what he does. First and foremost, he is a forgiven child of God. He is like everyone else; he has hurts, hang-ups and many flaws. By His grace, God has already performed a great healing in him and continues to do so every single day. He has been called by an amazing God, through His amazing Grace, to serve His people in this community and is very grateful to be able to do that here at Sparks Naz. Beyond the pastorate he is a husband to a beautiful wife and ministry partner, Kristal, who also serves with the youth ministries here at Sparks Naz. He is a father to a beautiful daughter and son. He is a brother, a son, and doe-doe (uncle), and feels blessed to have all of these gifts in his life. It is his goal to serve God with every part of his life until God tells him that he is done. Without a doubt the single most important fact of his life is this simple statement; he has come to accept himself as a man that God has chosen to reveal his grace in and through.
