Our Pastors

Pastor Del

Born in McCook, Nebraska, Pastor Del spent most of his youth in Denver, Colorado, where he recognized his need for Jesus as Savior while attending a CMA church. He spent his teens in Ponca City, Oklahoma, “cutting his teeth” playing piano in a Nazarene church. After graduating from high school in 1971, Del was working an eighty-hourper-week summer job when he experienced a nervous breakdown that would change the course of his life and bring him east to Lynchburg the following year. There he began to recover from his illness and started playing piano for a traveling men’s singing trio from Lynchburg Baptist College. It wasn’t long before he met his wife-to-be, Anne Mason, a Lynchburg native, whom he first noticed on a college missions trip to the inner city; they were married in 1976.

 

After teaching in Christian schools for seven years and moving to Colorado, Del and Anne grew into pastoral ministry and raised their three children: Ben, David, and Laura. In 1994, a traumatic change in church leadership brought Del and Anne to the end of their Denver ministry. In Del’s words, “a miracle of God” brought them to HBC, and in March 1995 he joined the staff here as Pastor of Music Ministries. In 2016, Pastor Del joined Pastor Keith in the Pastoral Care ministry as a Shepherding Pastor. He also has a passion for making disciples through biblical counseling. Anne serves in children’s ministry, as well as in music ministry alongside her husband. They have seven grandchildren.
