Meet the Elders - March 2019

The elders of Faith Lutheran Church work together as a group to assist the pastor in planning worship services and other activities and programs which strengthen the spiritual life of the congregation as a whole as well as its individual members.

In order to get to know the men serving on the Board of Elders, read a little background on each one below! If you have any questions or concerns about the church, service, or the Pastor, feel free to contact your elder via a Slack message, phone, or email. You can sign up for a Slack account at http://FLC.ms/slack.

Dave Anderson - Maureen and I met in college, we were married in 1979 and will have been married 40 years this July 2019. We moved to Moorpark in 1987 with our two children Ryan and Kristen. Ryan and his wife Shawna live in Simi Valley with our two grandsons; Kylar (8) and Declan (5). Kristen and her husband Dan live nearby in Oxnard with our granddaughter Gracie, (10 months old). I have a Bachelor’s degree in City Planning and a Master’s degree in Public Administration. Although I am now retired my career in City Planning extended over a period of 36 years serving a number of Southern California Cities. Maureen and I take great joy in our family and being so close to our grandchildren. I volunteer in a number of capacities both at church and in the community. I enjoy a number of artistic outlets and also look forward to boating, hiking, and fly fishing.

I have served as Congregational President and Elder at Faith and have taught numerous Bible study classes. I enjoy woodworking, woodturning, and especially photography. I can often be found wandering the back roads of Ventura County with my little dog Stitch photographing wildlife.

The Role of Elder

"The elders will earnestly pray for the congregation, its pastor and its individual members. Working together as a group and not as individuals, the elders will assist the pastor in planning worship services and other activities and programs which will strengthen the spiritual life of the congregation as a whole as well as its individual members"
Constitution and Bylaws of Faith Lutheran-Moorpark

The role of elder is an important part of any congregation. They are the faithful leaders who care for the spiritual life of the congregation. The elders are committed to the well-being of the church, its pastor and you, the member. Elders regularly receive God's Word and Sacrament and adhere to our confession of faith. Therefore, in this faith, they are equipped to serve as beacons of light for our congregation and community.

Honestly, the elders at Faith are fantastic. They have assisted me in so many different ways but most importantly, they are faithful models of prayer and encouragement. They are trustworthy and faithful men who have been a wonderful support in ministry, and for the well-being for me my family. Dave Anderson, Dave Bovey, Jeff Mark and Anthony Payne are not only humble, but faithful servants of Christ who are eager to serve as your elders. They are a great group and I am so thankful for each and every one of them.

Month after month, I have learned much about them, and I am confident that each and every elder will do a faithful job according to the word of God. They are blessing to all of us as they hold "to the mystery of the faith with a clear conscience... and also [having] great confidence in the faith that is in Christ Jesus" [1Tm3:9,13]. For the sake of Christ's church, the Elders fill a very important role as they continue to care for every member at Faith. They are here for you! I am very excited to see how the Lord will work through our elders as this will be a benefit for each and every one of you. And when you see them, make sure to say "Hello!" They would love to get to know you better and see how you are doing. I pray that God may continue to lead Faith Lutheran in the love of Christ that has set us free!
