Pastor David Mercer
Pastor David has been blessed to call CCFV his home church since 2009. Since the Lord called him to serve as senior pastor, he has followed his passion for teaching the Bible, chapter by chapter and verse by verse.
He is a graduate of Calvary Chapel Bible College and served at Calvary Chapel Pocatello in Idaho where he was ordained in 1998. He and his wife, Shannon, moved back to her hometown of Whitefish where the Lord was able to use him in several church plants prior to his calling at CCFV. The biggest lessons that he has learned along the way are: sharing the Gospel is contagious, God is a stronghold for those who trust in Him, and when you seek Jesus in His Word, He will never disappoint.
David and Shannon have 2 adult sons, Ethan and Logan, and a daughter, Rayna. It has been a gift to be able to raise them in the beauty of the Flathead Valley where the family enjoys hiking, camping, hunting, fishing and skiing. Being able to serve Jesus alongside his family in such an amazing place is truly a gift.
