David Hemphill, Discipleship Pastor

Pastor David’s greatest desire is to see RTBC share the gospel of Christ in our community and throughout the world. He seeks to accomplish this by providing the support, love, and healing of Christ to each person who he encounters regardless of who they are, where they come from, or what they look like.

Pastor Dave values family and sees RTBC as a place that should:

  • Be safe for families
  • Heal families
  • Protect families
  • Reach out to families
  • Build families
  • Nurture families

Dave has been married to Sandy for over 30 years and together they have three children; Emily, Matthew, and Timothy.  Dave is from Eastport (Annapolis) MD, and has lived in Georgia, Kentucky, and Northern Maryland.  He joined the staff of RTBC in September 2016 when First Baptist Church of Edgewater merged with Riva Trace Baptist Church.
