Pastor Dave Barringer

Thanks for letting me ramble…


“David Barringer is the author of 2 books, “Launch Point” and “Mosaic Marriage.” He is the Lead Pastor of Kalamazoo First Assembly of God. David’s vision for his latest book, “Speaking from the Shadows” be a light in the darkness for two groups. First, to help those who deal with depression articulate the challenges of depression can be difficult to describe. Second, to illuminate the reality of depression for those who’ve never dealt will it but have friends and loved ones who do.”

I’m Dave

I joined Kfirst as Lead Pastor in April of 2009. My vision is to see Kfirst as a vibrant, life-giving community that makes it simple for people to find and follow Jesus. I love teaching and preaching, and I have a passion for ministry based on healthy relationships.

My wife Anne and I have been married for over 24 years and have three children: Camryn, Ethan, and Josh. 

My Writing

“Good writing is supposed to evoke sensation in the reader – not the fact that it is raining, but the feeling of being rained upon.”

My heart has been just that, to utilize writing to help bring people to experience where my heart is at. From healthy marriages to stepping into a journey with Christ to getting a greater understanding of mental health, my books are designed to be the type of books I’d want to read to help enable me to be a better human and follower of Christ.

Our Passion…

Thank you for your time on this sight. My mission is my passion:
To make it simple for people to find and follow Jesus. Everything I do is in order that people would experience His love and learn to live out of the life He offers to everyone.
