Ministry Team

 
Rev. Dave Carpenter
Pastor, Head of Staff
Dave.Carpenter@bpcusa.org   ext. 101
 
Mission and service are Dave’s first loves. Dave believes the church should be a place where believers are connected to one  another, fed and equipped for ministry, and then sent out, daring to give expression to their faith in ways that touch the lives of others. Through Dave’s work in such places as Africa, Northern Ireland, Croatia, Mexico, and U.S.A. inner cities, he has learned the value of “hands on” ministry.

Roche started ministry in South Africa serving  three  different congregations as youth pastor, co-pastor and head pastor. However, God had other plans and Roché took a leap of faith and immigrated to the USA in 2001 where he served as solo pastor in Brawley, CA. In June of 2005, he  became a part of BPC and  now expends endless amounts of energy heading our Mission outreaches!
