who we are
Chad's joy, outside his walk with Christ, is his family. After growing up in ILL, Chad married Marla in 1993 after dating in high school. They went off from ILL after high school as Chad served in the Navy for four years. Along the way, Chad received Christ when he least expected it. He didn't grow up in church, and his road to Christ was a unique one. Stick around DBC long enough and you will hear his story woven through his messages.
After the Navy, Chad went to college chasing what he thought was his career as an aircraft technician, but God proved otherwise. He received his degree and Airframe and Powerplant license from Southern Illinois University.
A few years into that he was compelled that full time ministry was his destiny, so he loaded up the truck and moved to Florida (sounds like a TV theme song). While in ministry, he received his Master's degree in Theological Studies from Liberty University. He served in a great church in West Melbourne, and now we call him Pastor here at DBC, or as he prefers, Chad.

Amy's passion is to see parents and children of all ages develop growing, personal relationships with Christ. She believes that this happens when the love of the family connects with the Light of the church on a regular basis. Her heart is for families and her hope is to see them grow closer to each other as they grow closer to Him.
Keith heard God call him to youth ministry when he was only 14 years old. He followed that call to Toccoa Falls College, where he earned his degree in youth ministry and met his wife, Brianna. As the years moved on, he found himself in and then out of youth ministry as he faced several unexpected challenges along the way.
God has moved greatly in Keith’s life and heart, and part of his message is that God can use brokenness for His own purposes and beauty. The grace of God eventually brought him back full circle to where he started: youth ministry at Dublin Bible Church. He brings a sharpened focus, a greater compassion, and a heart of humility that only trial by fire can bring. He wants to love and equip not only students for the kingdom of God, but also their families.
Keith has a few loves: his Savior, his wife, and his five crazy kids. He can often be found in the gym, wrestling with his sons, reading bedtime stories to his daughter, laughing with his wife, or reading some J.R.R. Tolkien (for the 17th time).
A.J.'s passion is to see the local Church come together and grow. He believes the times we share in Worship empower us to become a Church that has a solid foundation in Christ. He believes that the idea of Worship is not that we would be so focused on the little things but be able to put all of our attention on Jesus.
