Dave Butler and his wife, Rita, have been members of College Park Christian Church for 30 years. They have 4 adult children and 6 grandchildren. They became familiar with College Park when they enrolled their son in the church’s pre-school, Sharing Tree Pre-School. The Director and the teachers were such a good Christian influence on their son that Dave and Rita decided to make College Park their church home.
Dave currently serves as an elder, adult Sunday school teacher, and is the team leader for the Outreach/Shepherding Team. He is Secretary of the Church Council. He serves as a member of the Salvation Army Advisory Board and is a volunteer for Prairie State Legal Services.
He enjoys organizing church events and serving as a fill-in preacher through the Lincoln Christian University Pulpit Supply program.
One of Dave’s favorite Bible verses is Matthew 25:40, “Whatever you did for the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.”
