The Rev. David Denoon, Pastor
Dave Denoon is our pastor. His passions are for making the life of faith approachable for all people and for establishing God’s reign of justice and peace. His sermons and classes resonate with those messages.

He is available for pastoral care and counseling either by phone or in person. To arrange an appointment, please contact him by email or by phone at (314) 962-0475, ext. 11.

Pastor Dave’s sermons and podcasts can be downloaded along with other sound files from our SoundCloud page. Please enjoy Pastor Dave’s sermon blog, Post Pastoral. In another blog entitled, From the Tower Room, he reflects on the life and history of First Church.

Pastor Dave also publishes two weblog series on this website. One is Musings and Meditations and offers his spiritual perspective on a number of matters. The other, A Journey for Renewal, presents Pastor Dave’s thoughts and reflections about his sabbatical in West Africa and other locations significant to African American history and culture, June – August 2017.

You can also meet him on Twitter (@DaveD1200) or Facebook.
