FORT MYERS, Fla.—Daniels Road Baptist Church welcomed Dave Wilson Jr. to its staff as associate pastor Feb. 1. He brings five years of experience in children’s ministry, youth ministry, outreach, communications, and strategic leadership.
His primary focus will be leading the youth ministry and assisting Pastor Erik Bennett with outreach opportunities. And at Daniels Road Baptist Church, outreach opportunities are plentiful. The church might be best known for its Soul Food Pantry, which provides food every Friday for neighbors in need. It also teaches weekly English as a Second Language classes, hosts financial management courses, interprets church services and leads a Bible study for the deaf, and holds special events for adults and students throughout the year.
Daniels Road Baptist Church is the same church where Chris Hindal was pastor from 1994 from 2006. He is now director of GARBC International Ministries.
Bennett says, “I am excited to have Dave join the pastoral staff. Dave brings an incredible passion for youth ministry and I am looking forward to seeing this ministry grow under his leadership.”
