Dave Stene serves as Lead Pastor of Pagosa Bible Church. He and his family moved to Pagosa Springs in October of 2015 when he began serving as Lead Pastor of the church. He previously has served churches in Gillette, WY and Sioux Falls, SD as well as serving on staff with InterVarsity Christian Fellowship in Minnesota and South Dakota.

Dave is originally from Northwest Minnesota and grew up on a dairy farm. He received his Bachelor’s degree in biology from Minnesota State University, Moorhead (where he met his wife Amy) and his Masters of Divinity from Sioux Falls Seminary.

Dave preaches and provides leadership for our church. He has a passion to help people connect to Jesus and grow in their relationship with Him.

Dave and Amy have three great sons, Caleb, Isaiah and Noah. Some of my passions are enjoying time together as a family, hiking, exploring new places, reading, watching movies and cheering on the Minnesota Twins, Gophers, Wild and Green Bay Packers.
