About us

Dayton Center Church was established back in 1865, and after 150 years many changes have been made.  The buildings and grounds have changed over the years to accommodate the people and ministry growth.  The people have come and gone due to economy and other ministry opportunities.  The pastors have served and moved on to other ministries.  But one thing remains the same: The Mission.   

We are a Non-denominational church affiliated with the Independent Fundamental Churches of America

our Leadership:

Pastor David Wilson

     Pastor Dave was born in 1981 in Detroit, Michigan. He was not raised in church; but at nine years old, during Awana club, he recognized what his sin looked like before a perfect and holy God then asked for forgiveness and placed his trust in Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of his sins. He has been married to his wife Katie since 2005 and has served with her, and their three children, to where and what the Lord  has called them to do. He entered the pastoral ministry in 2010 with a desire to win, teach, and disciple youth and children. He graduated from Liberty University and he was ordained in 2013 at Crossroads Baptist Church in Imlay City, MI.
     Pastor Dave loves to spend time with his family playing outside, playing games, and helping with ministries. He enjoys playing sports, a good cup of coffee, building things, and being outdoors. He enjoys using his talents and gifts to help people through missions work and local ministries. His desire is that every believer know their faith because it is theirs and is genuine. He wants to fulfill the great commission, to make disciples and help the church be a beacon of faith in Jesus to the community.
