Location: Lancaster, California, USA
Pastor David Parker, along with his wife Nancy, live in Lancaster, California where David is the senior pastor of the Church. David received his education at the University of Missouri in ancient history and at Regent College, Canada, in theology. He is the author of a series of inductive Bible study guides and has spent a good portion of his ministry helping people understand and apply the word of God to their lives. During the 1980s, David was involved in church leadership in both the United States and Canada. He became identified with the Vineyard movement in 1985 and has traveled widely throughout the Vineyard churches since that time. In 1991, David and his family moved to the United Kingdom to pursue an itinerant teaching and equipping ministry to the church in Great Britain. At the end of their two years there, the Parker family returned to the United States with David assuming the leadership of the Church after the passing of its founding pastor, Brent Rue. For twenty years David has successfully led the Desert Vineyard church to become the fruitful and thriving ministry it is today.
Nancy has served in ministry alongside her husband David for nearly thirty years. Along with overseeing Women’s ministries Nancy oversees the Teen Moms and Mothers of Preschoolers and the much acclaimed Desert Vineyard annual Christmas Tea. Partnering alongside her husband David, Nancy’s leadership scope extends far beyond her regular responsibilities through her outward embrace towards our community as well as international missions.
