Background
Pastor David Denny
Whipple Ave. Baptist Church

Denny Family

My parents are committed Christians and I was raised in church.  I was provided a rich background of training and experience through Sunday School, Christian camps, youth group, retreats, missions trips and Bible conferences.  I was saved at the age of four and baptized at the age of eight.  At fifteen I made a public commitment of unconditional surrender to the will of God – which ultimately led me to pastoral ministry.

I grew up in church and was always active in local church ministries such as nursing home services and youth groups.  In college I led one of the nursing home ministry groups.  I also served three summer missionary apprenticeships.  After college I served at various times and places as a Sunday School Teacher, Sunday School Superintendent, Deacon and Missions Committee Chairman.

I graduated from Cedarville College in Cedarville, Ohio in 1978 and from Baptist Bible Theological Seminary in Clarks Summit, Pennsylvania in 1986.  I was ordained by Calvary Baptist Church in Cadosia in 1988.

I was called to be pastor of Whipple Ave. Baptist Church in 2007.  I previously served as pastor of New Harmony Baptist Church in Caldwell, Ohio (Jan.'97 through Dec.'07) and Calvary Baptist Church of Cadosia, New York (Apr.'87 through Dec.'96).

My wife, Lola, and I met while we were both students at Cedarville College.  We married when I graduated in 1978.  We have two children. Our daughter and son-in-law, Roberta and Darren Wells, live in Indianapolis. Our first grandchild, Emma Joy, was born August 15, 2005.  Her brother, Caleb, was born July 18, 2007. Our son and daughter-in-law, David Andrew and Jessica Denny, were married in June of 2012. Jessica teaches in a preschool and David is a professional truck driver. Smiling Baby Caleb - 11 weeks old

Lola teaches at Fairless Elementary School. She is an accomplished pianist, and enjoys music and quilting.

I enjoy studying the Bible and preaching. I count it a privilege to be able to help people find biblical answers to their questions. I also enjoy hunting, fishing and Bullseye Pistol Competition.

At the end of 2013 we began to experience all kinds of new challenges. Although I still feel very well, I was diagnosed with an untreatable and fatal disease called myelofibrosis and told that my life expectancy was about seven years. That was a surprise!

But we are determined to see even this be used for the glory of God. Who knows what God will do?
