Pastor Dana J. Smith

Pastor Dana has been married to his wonderful wife, Kristen, for 25 years, and together they have three boys (Micah, Caleb, & Jude).  A graduate with his M.Div. (’99) from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary in South Hamilton, MA, Dana has over twenty-five years experience in various forms of the ministry, having served churches in Pennsylvania and Massachusetts, both as an Associate and Senior Pastor. He also was the Chaplain at Lexington Christian Academy in Lexington, MA.  His wife, Kristen (M.Div. ’99, Gordon-Conwell), was a missionary with InterVarsity Christian Fellowship in Paris, France, and for the past 19 years they have served the Evangelical Church in France in a multitude of ways, albeit on this side of “the pond.”

Dana loves to serve both the local and global Church, seeking to emphasize the teaching of sound, biblical/Reformed teaching/preaching, while concomitantly seeking to instill a missions awareness amongst the people of God whenever and wherever possible. To that end, in conjunction with his local church pastoral service, he has spoken at various missions conferences and retreats, most notably as the plenary youth speaker at the 2010 Chinese Mission Convention in Valley Forge, PA.

Along with being a Pastor, he is a trained actor, having had a semi-successful (by theatre standards) career as an actor in the Philadelphia television and film market. He even starred (or something like that) in one episode of  Forensic Files, floating around here and there on the internet. His way of connecting with the local community comes mostly through pick-up soccer, so if you know of a semi-competitive, fun game around, let him know.
