PASTOR DAVID KILMER has a passion for the presence and power of the Holy Spirit
and for the advance of the kingdom of God in McKinleyville and in the North Coast Region of
California. He works to help each person come into health and wholeness through Christ and
His unconditional love, grace and mercy. He wants to help each one to experience personally the
love and presence of Christ. He wants also to help each one to come into his or her own spiritual
destiny and inheritance as a joint heir and as a royal priest of Christ. His priority then for this
season is equipping believers, especially young leaders, to do the work of the ministry, until we
all come to unity in Christ in love (Ephesians 4:11-16). At The Church on the Rock, he works to
continue the emphasis on building personal relationships and fellowship where visitors are
welcomed to become a valued part of the church family. He prays and works for revival and for our
nation to return to God and the Judeo-Christian principles of our Founding Fathers. His heart is
also for the nations so that “every tribe and tongue and people and nation” will be represented
around the throne of God (Revelation 5:9-10).
David has served as the pastor of The Church on the Rock, a Foursquare Church, since February
of 2010. He and his wife Elizabeth have been partners in ministry now in four churches in
Humboldt County since they first came here in 1985. Before coming to The Church on the Rock,
he was the pastor at the Ferndale Community Church (Independent) for 19 years, as the interim
pastor at Arcata First Baptist Church (Charismatic American Baptist) for three years, and as a co-
pastor at the Murray Road Community Church, McKinleyville (Southern Baptist) for one year.
Before coming to Humboldt county he served as an Elder in an independent charismatic church
and served on staff in two American Baptist Churches, all in Marin County. Over the years, he
has networked and partnered with other pastors, churches and ministries for the greater
cause of Christ.
An experienced Bible teacher, David has been an instructor at the North Coast Bible Institute
since 2003, hosted at the Eureka Faith Center Foursquare Church, but which is open to the
community. Over the years he also has been a volunteer teacher in several Bible Institutes,
Leadership and Discipleship Schools as well as for other local ministries in the area. He
specializes in both the Old and New Testaments, Biblical Theology and Revival History.
He developed a heart for the nations early on, when he lived overseas in Ethiopia, Kenya and
Egypt with his family as a child, before returning stateside to live in Ohio, Connecticut, Pasadena,
California and then in the San Francisco Bay Area for 25 years before coming to Humboldt
County. Before becoming a Christian, he received a B.A. degree in Art History from the University
of California at Santa Barbara. He had a salvation experience in 1973 and accepted a call to
ministry in 1975. He has a Masters of Divinity degree from Golden Gate Baptist Theological
Seminary, received his first ministerial license in 1977 and his first ordination in 1983. He and
his wife Elizabeth have been married over 30 years. They have two grown sons who are serving

Foursquare Church. Several small groups
then combined to become a church plant.
For several years, the church met in several
places, like the local grange and in schools,

and ministry of Jesus Christ in our own lives
and we value the Bible as the Word of God
and aim to live by its teachings. We partner
with other churches to expand the Kingdom of
God in our region and around the world, on
earth as it is in heaven. We celebrate God’s
unconditional love, grace, mercy and
If you do not know Jesus Christ in a personal
way, we would be delighted to help you
experience Him yourself. We invite you to
come and join us in pursuing Him.
