About Our Pastor

Dave and Bea Schenk
Dave and Bea Schenk

Pastor Dave Schenk had a career in the field of education for thirty-seven years. He accepted Christ as his Savior in April 1991, after years of prayer and love from Bea, who was already a Christian. After turning his life over to Jesus, God worked a mighty change in Dave’s life, and began working in his heart to become involved in ministry. He led Bible studies at the Atlantic City Rescue Mission and at Calvary Chapel Vineland, where he and Bea worshipped for 11 years. Dave also served as Assistant Pastor at Maranatha-By-The-Sea in Ocean City, NJ from 1995-1999.

 

After retiring from the teaching profession in 2009, Dave’s goal was to be more involved in full-time ministry, and soon after, he received the call to come to Cape May, where he began to serve in February 2010.

 

In addition to his degrees in education, Dave has a Bachelor’s of Ministry degree, and is currently pursuing his Master’s degree in Theology. Pastor Dave has a real heart for reaching the community for Christ, as well as grounding new believers in the faith.
