Dave Kuiper moved to Alaska in 1974 with his wife, Darlene, and worked in a number of construction related jobs over the first 24 years of life in Anchorage while raising two wonderful children with Darlene and God’s grace. After serving 7 years as teaching leader for the Anchorage Men’s Class of Bible Study Fellowship, Dave taught high school Bible classes and led student mission’s trips with Grace Christian School for four years and, in 1999, became part of a church planting team in Anchorage.

After serving 14 years as senior pastor for Crosspoint Community Church, Dave’s responsibility shifted to serve as a pastor for missional engagement: a connector and liaison for outreach into our community, to help Crosspoint and others in demonstrating and declaring God’s love to our city and beyond. In January 2013, Dave became an Associate Director for Christian Health Associates (www.christianhealth.org) with specific responsibilities to serve as a Faith-Based Community Initiatives Liaison, and Certified Pastoral Counselor and Life Coach and Alaska Medical Missions Director.
