About “Papa” Dave Bentley

Tales o' this portrait be a mystery.

I wear a lot of hats: Husband, Father, Papa, Pastor, Teacher, Writer, Singer, Chef, Dishwasher.  My life is an adventure on a journey, and I wouldn’t want it any other way.  It’s got some challenges, but far more rewards.  I’m married to my best friend, Andie, and we have two children and six grandchildren.  We are also both involved in the area of education.

I have also been involved in church ministry for over 3 decades in a number of different locations.  Currently, I serve as pastor of First Baptist Church in Wallingford, Vermont, the state’s oldest Baptist church.

The most important thing in my life is my relationship with Jesus Christ.  You can see my story on the BLOG page. (https://wordpress.com/post/bigdbentley.com/42) I love being able to talk about what God is doing, and welcome the chance to pray for you if you have something you need lifted up to The Father.

My hobbies are as varied as my hats. Camping, photography, music, and card/board games are among my favorite “down-time” activities.
