He answered the call to ministry in 1992.  He enrolled in the Nazarene Bible College at Colorado Springs, CO.  While earning an Associate Degree in Biblical Studies Pastor Dennis was called to his first fulltime ministry assignment at Indian Heights Church of the Nazarene at Colorado Springs.  After 4 years he accepted a call to La Junta First Church of the Nazarene at La Junta, CO.  In 2002 he was called to Indian Hills Church of the Nazarene at Wichita, KS where he serves today.

Pastor Dennis and Sara are committed to the people of Indian Hills.  His strengths lie in a strong desire to preach and teach the Word of God in a manner to be understood and applied to individual’s lives.  Also, his corporate background gives him insight ino the necessary business needs of the church.

In his time out of the office Pastor Dennis enjoys riding his bicycle.  The past nine years he has ridden in the Flint Hills Bike MS event to raise funds and awareness to create a world free of MS.  In addition, his youngest son challenged him to ride 2018 miles in 2018 which he has surpassed.
