Apostolic Leader | North America
Dave Dummitt is the lead pastor of 2|42 Community Church, ranked by Outreach Magazine for 4 years in a row as one of the top 20 fastest-growing churches in America. As one of the core members of the original launch team, Dave has played an integral part in keeping the mission and vision of 2|42 in focus - “helping people take next steps with God”. Under Dave’s leadership over the last ten years, 2|42 has grown from a 40-member launch team to over 6,000 people meeting at 3 different campuses each weekend.
As an innovative missional community known for its creativity and passion to serve its cities, 2|42 has become a magnet for new and curious people. Dave’s commitment to training and replication has allowed the church’s organizational structure to increase in direct proportion to its growth. In addition, by encouraging his staff to take God’s mission seriously, but not themselves too seriously, Dave has provided an environment where people think big and think outside the box. This has led to the opening of a 95,000-square-foot community center in Brighton, MI, complete with an indoor basketball court and soccer field, 3-story playscape, a preschool, a cafe, and a school for the arts. 2|42 has become a church open 24/7.
Dave has a BA in Bible and Theology from Wheaton College; is the Executive Director of Missional Businesses Inc., a non-profit holding group helping churches start missional businesses to reach their community; serves on the leadership team for the NewThing Network; and sits on the board of directors for the Solomon Foundation, a church extension fund. He lives with his wife of 20 years, Rachel, and their three awesome kids in Howell, MI.
