Meet Our Pastors

As a “Big Tent” church, we believe that not every faith community is for everyone. Each of us needs to find that place and people that feel like home. Our greatest hope is that you find happiness and joy, whether that be with us or some other place of blessing.

We think that the best way to find that home is to really try us out, meet our pastors to see if they are your flavor, come to worship to see if it fills your soul, meet a bunch of us to see if we click, and then notice if your life is changing. We never pressure anyone about joining, but we do receive new folks who think this will be their home twice a year.

Music is the sea on which our worship floats, warming our hearts and inspiring our life together at The Dover Church. If you love to sing or play an instrument, we have a place for you.

Rev. Dr. Max Olmstead preaching

At the center of worship in our Christian tradition is the sermon, a time to reflect on where God’s Word intersects, informs, enriches and directs our lives. In the sermon our in-house theologian, our pastor, seeks to help people see themselves and their lives in the light of God’s love and command to love others.
