David L. Showalter
Honorary Board Member, Mentoring Ministry Director
I was first associated with the State of Nebraska in the early 1950’s, as a boy of 2 or 3 years old attending a church in Bellevue pastored by Bro Worley Davis. Bro Jerry Tiller became pastor just prior to our move to Alaska in 1955. While in Alaska, we met and were pastored by Sis Agnes Rich, from 1957-1959. We returned to Nebraska in 1959 and once again attended the church in Bellevue, pastored by Bro Jerry Tiller. In 1966, I left for Bible College in Portland, Oregon. After graduation, my wife, Jeanie, and I came back to Nebraska and settled in Grand Island to assist Sis Agnes Rich, as Assistant Pastor, from 1969-1978. The church was located on Division and Vine Streets and was hit by lightning in 1968 and burned down. We helped tear-down the old building and rebuild in a new location on Oak Street. The lumber from that church was ‘reused’ in the new building. In 1978, we moved to Omaha, NE to pastor Lighthouse United Pentecostal Church until 2016 when I transitioned the Pastorate to my Co-Pastor Steve Showalter, where I remain as Pastor Emeritus. I have served in various offices in the Great Plains District as well as when Nebraska became its own district in 1976. The offices that I have held are: Sectional Youth Secretary (1973), District Youth Secretary (1976), District Foreign Missions (Global Missions) Director, District Home Missions (North American Missions), District Presbyter-at-large (1983) and District Presbyter for Section 3 (1999), Chairman of Christian Life Camp Board and District Secretary (1999-2008). I currently hold the office of Honorary Board Member since our 2019 District Conference.×
