Lunsford_inlineFERNDALE, Wash.—The Baptist Network Northwest has named Dave Lunsford as its executive director. Dave and his wife, Sue, “have sensed the calling of God towards this ministry for a couple of years and are excited to begin this ministry,” says Phil Perry, chairman of the BNN Council of 15.

Dave has ministered in BNN churches for 38 years. He has been youth and music pastor at Nooksack Valley Baptist Church, Everson, Washington; a home missionary in Boardman, Oregon, with Northwest Baptist Home Mission; pastor of Southcenter Community Baptist Church, Tukwila, Washington; and pastor of First Baptist Church, Ferndale, Washington, a ministry that he will conclude on May 22. He served as the BNN’s interim director for three months until the fellowship’s churches voted him into the permanent, full-time position during the BNN Annual Spring Conference April 7–9.

Lunsford says, “I am thrilled to be called by God through the Council of 15 to give leadership to the organization that has been such a blessing to me.”
