My name is Dave Proulx (pronounced "Proo") and I'm so excited to be back in Battle Creek —a place our family calls home—to serve the local church and the community here.
We spent the last four years in Dallas while I finished my Th.M. at Dallas Theological Seminary and after that, the Lord made it clear that He was calling us back to Battle Creek to plant a church in an effort to help this community heal from division, and to pass on the education I was able to receive to a church and a community we love so dearly.
Aimee and I have been married for 13 years. She is the light of my life, and is just as passionate about ministry: first to our kids and our family, and then to women in the church. I am excited to see what the Lord does through her in women's ministry.
Our two kids, Bella and Jack, both love to sing and play music. They have always been active in choirs and plays. We have a feeling we may have two musical theater kids on our hands!
Before coming to faith in Christ, I received my undergraduate degree in Piano Performance and Jazz Studies from Western Michigan University, and then after coming to faith, served as a worship leader at a local church for 7 years.
I still enjoy playing in jazz trios and bands all around West Michigan. You may hear me occasionally with the Fred Knapp Trio, or on my own, singing and playing in the area.
I hope you decide to come and check out Battle Creek Community Church. We are a multi-generational church that is passionate about the life we have found in Jesus and are just as passionate about sharing Him with others.
We hope you are able to stop by sometime and attend a service with us. I'd love the opportunity to meet you.
