David Hesje | Pastor

Pastor Dave served Bethel for five years and then accepted a call to Camrose.  Six years later Bethel once again called Pastor Dave and Debbie to be their pastor.  So Pastor Dave is back in Elbow serving the Lord through Bethel Lutheran!  Along with their three children Pastor Dave and Debbie are proudly grandparents of five terrific grandchildren!  Pastor Dave loves the Lord, has an evangelical heart and thoroughly enjoys preaching and teaching the gospel whether too many or to one.  Pastor Dave enjoys life and sports and believes Christians should never be lacking in zeal as they serve the Lord! Their prayer is as they live out their faith in the community God’s light will shine through them and their Christianity will be contagious!
