Dennis Bauer, Senior Pastor - firstname.lastname@example.org
I started ministry 25 years ago as a church planter in Venice, Florida.
My wife Pam and I started this church by ourselves and it was a church of hope for all those who were hurting. The Lord blessed this church and it grew to 50 people after 5 years.
While leading this church in Venice, we felt the Lord was calling us to Jacksonville. So we prayed about it and went to Jacksonville. We connected with a church there that only had eleven people attending and by the grace of God we were able to be a blessing to that church. My wife and I were there for one and a half years, the church grew to forty people and then the Lord called us to Russia.
We left the Jacksonville church and traveled to Russia with a desire to reach the lost. We spent 7 years there, working with Muslims and sharing the gospel of Jesus.
Two years ago the Lord called us to Dunnellon and I have been serving as the Pastor at Rainbow Springs Village Church since then. My wife Pam is an RN and we have two daughters. Jana, my oldest is graduating from USF and is married. Our youngest Samantha is still at home.
Char Reding, Worship Leader - email@example.com
Char has been the worship leader at RSVC for almost 10 years now. She started playing guitar at age 12 and began singing and playing guitar in church at age 16. Her conversion and surrender to the Lord came at age 25 when she was struggling with an eating disorder. The Lord set her free through 12 step groups, where she truly for the first time understood Christ's forgiveness. Besides leading worship, Char also helps facilitate the 12 Step Growth Group here at RSVC. "Bear one another's burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ", Galatians 6:2. One of her favorite scriptures for worship is: "Let the word of Christ richly dwell within you, with all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another with psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with thankfulness in your hearts to God", Colossians 3:16. Char and her husband Tom have three daughters and seven grandchildren.
