Dave House - Children's Ministry

The late J. Vernon McGee said, "God put the cookies on the lower shelf where the kiddies could get to them’ and it is in this spirit that I gladly and humbly serve the children of Olive Branch, where they can learn about Jesus and be encouraged in their faith." Dave lives in Rancho Bernardo with his wife Eva and their two children. Dave and his family enjoy discovering the beauty and majesty of Creation as they ski, hike, fish and mountain bike.
Danielle Kronheimer - Children's Ministry
“I love Jesus, my wonderful husband, and darling daughter." The first time I heard the gospel I was in college and for some time I tried to ignore His saving grace. But eventually I was overwhelmed by God’s grace and love and surrendered my life to Him. I have had peace and joy beyond measure ever since.” Danielle and Dave were led to OBCF in the fall of 2011. “Upon our first visit we were immediately shown God's love which compelled us to make OBCF our home church. Soon after, I sensed a call to serve in the children’s ministry. As I was praying, God spoke to me through the parable of the talents to use the gifts He has given me to teach children for His glory. Teaching the children is truly a time of refreshment as I experience the fullness of God.”
