David M Atkinson
Senior Pastor

Dr. David M. Atkinson takes his responsibility as Pastor very seriously. He views his position as one of an "under-shepherd" who must "feed the flock of God." For decades our Pastor has had a heart-effective ministry, especially to people with deep wounds and hurts in their lives. Undoubtedly, his unusual ability to empathize with hurting people comes from surviving his own physical and spiritual devastations.

For his over twenty years at Dyer Baptist, Pastor Atkinson has balanced this ministry of the heart with uncompromising commitment to the holiness of God and His Word. His sermons probe deeply into both the Bible and the issues we each face in our own spiritual pilgrimage.
