Our community has lost a great man of Faith and Vision, recently retiring after serving as pastor for 40 years at Daniels Bible Church. Pastor Don Pfleger went home to be with the Lord last Thursday.

Don served as one of the founders of The Center for Pastoral Studies which became The Center for Biblical Discipleship. This ministry was the answer to our desire to help individuals to grow in their Faith. He served his Lord right up to his last breath.
