It can all be summed up when those who make up the church LOVE GOD, LOVE PEOPLE & CHANGE THE WORLD. He loves to preach the gospel of the grace of God and help people find their place and their fit in the body of Christ. Acts 1:8 is a challenge he takes personally and he has gone on mission to Kenya, Scotland, Haiti, and India.
Pastor Don is married to the love of his life, Marie (Giliberti) of Miami, Florida. Marie is a licensed clinical counselor who loves helping people discover victory and peace. They are the proud parents of three grown children: Paul, an attorney who lives in in Springfield with his wife Shay and his children Graham (8), Lena Grace (7) and Clara (3); Jessica, a professional educator and entrepreneur who lives in Warwick, Rhode Island with her daughter Ariana (7), and Rachel who is the general manager of Aikens Natural Foods in Springfield and lives in Nixa with her husband Brent Swickard and their daughter Taylor (11).
Pastor Don is an avid cyclist and has already discovered "The Katy Trail" traveling many miles getting in his much needed cardio while enjoying the scenery of Missouri. He also enjoys golf with friends and loves to travel with his wife and spend time with his grandchildren.
