Jean has been on staff since 2010. With a background in administration taking the position as Pastor Secretary/Administrator just seemed like a perfect fit. She fulfills various roles in our small church making sure that the necessary day to day activities are completed. Besides her job here at DPC, Jean is also active as a Transit youth leader and works with various other committees. Outside of work she loves to spend time with her husband, Steve and her family. She enjoys running and the occasional half marathon. Jean can be reached at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Adam and Carisse Baier
Adam and Carisse Baier are so excited to be joining the staff here at DPC. They have been attending this church for a few years now and love every second. They really felt called to help with the youth, as youth ministries were a huge part of their lives growing up. Adam and Carisse both grew up in the church and are committed to growing and understanding what the Lord calls them to do through their lives. They strive to bring up young kids in the gospel so they can be better equipped for the world God put us in. Carisse also has a huge heart for missions having lived overseas as a missionary, for many years. Adam has a long background of helping with missions trips and youth groups. You can reach Adam and Carisse through Transityouth@dundalkpres.org.

Kim is skilled at keeping children engaged during lessons through music, crafts, and games while ensuring the children are able to retain the important information within the lessons while having fun!

What We Believe
DPC is a God-centered (as opposed to man-centered) congregation which seeks to be joyfully: 1) led by the spirit, 2) faithful to God's Word (as He has given it to us in the Bible) and, 3) obedient bond-servants to our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
What We Believe About God the Father
We believe God the Father is the first person of the Trinity (which includes God the Son and God the Holy Spirit). We believe He is absolutely sovereign over the universe He created. He is all-knowing, all powerful, and everywhere present. Since He is God, He does as He pleases in the realm of Heaven and among the inhabitants of the earth. We believe He is the creator, provider and sustainer of all life and that every living being (whether angelic, human, animal or otherwise) owes its absolute obedience and unwavering allegiance to Him alone.
What We Believe About God the Son
We believe that Jesus is God, as well as the only begotten Son of God. He is the second person of the Trinity (which includes God the Father and God the Holy Spirit). We believe God the Father sent Jesus into the world, born of a virgin, to live a perfect (sin-free) life and to die on the cross to pay the penalty which God the Father demanded for the transgressions, iniquities and sins of His people. We believe that once Jesus completed His God-ordained mission, God the Father raised him from the dead. We believe Jesus commissioned His followers to go and make disciples of every nation and that after giving the commission He ascended into Heaven and is now seated at the right hand of God the Father. We believe that Jesus will return one day to judge all people at the end of human history. Until then He is the Head--Lord and Master--of His Church.
What We Believe About God the Holy Spirit
The Holy Spirit is God. He is the third person of the Trinity (which includes God the Father and God the Son). We believe God the Father and Jesus the Son sent the Holy Spirit into the world to apply the cross-work of Jesus to sinners in order to birth them again, to impute Jesus' righteousness to them, and to begin conforming them into Jesus' likeness. The Holy Spirit is every Christian's sanctifier, comforter, teacher, gift giver and advocate to God the Father, His presence is the guarantee of eternal life for believing sinners.
What We Believe About the Bible
We believe the 66 books contained in the Old and New Testaments are God's inspired Word. We believe the Bible is absolute truth and is therefore sufficient for guiding us in all areas of life.
The Westminster Standards are an excellent resource for more in depth study into many of our beliefs.
