Northland Welcomes new lead follower Dave Rizer and family. 

Dave Rizer is a passionate follower of Jesus. He grew up in Troy, KS and accepted God’s calling on his life as a 6th grader.  That calling would eventually lead him to Ozark Christian College where he would study God’s word.  During his time at Ozark, he took an internship in Mexico City, Mexico and at College Heights Christian Church.   It was at college that he would meet his beautiful wife of 10 years, Jen.  Jen was born and raised in Salina, KS.  God would lead them on the adventure of ministry that started in Amoret, MO.  

 In Amoret, Dave was the primary leader and teacher, working with the elders and other leaders to actualize God’s vision for the community. This included oversight of all the initiatives both in the city and the surrounding areas.

From there, Dave started serving at Southland Christian Church in Lexington, KY during a significant shift in strategy and leadership, he served as the Leader of the Danville Campus. As Southland continued to refine their strategy, he had the opportunity to continue to lead in a number of capacities at the forefront of their innovation.  

Dave and Jen have three boys - Benaiah (6), Noah (4) and Kenan (1)!  They love playing sports and getting outdoors to hike and camp.  As a husband and father, Dave’s home life is his primary ministry, which allows him to lead others both publicly and in the local church.  His calling is to make disciples of Jesus and equip others for ministry. The experiences he has had in different church roles have deepened his desire to fulfill Christ’s commission to equip the church to impact the world for the Kingdom.
