Pastor David Nichols was brought up in a Godly home in Springboro, PA.  His parents, Paul and Gladys Nichols explained to him his need of a Saviour, and at six years of age, he received Christ as personal Lord and Saviour. He dedicated his life to the Lord and answered the call to the Ministry in 1958.

He graduated from Bob Jones University in 1966, and in the fall of the same year, he became Pastor of Bethal Baptist Church near Linton, IN.  It has been a great joy to him, to have Pastored 7 Churches over 51 years.  The Lord has given him a deep love for his people and for the countless souls led to Christ.

Pastor Dave married Sharon Fergus in 1967, who passed away with Lupis in 2002.  He remarried Patricia Ahr Phares in 2004.  Both wives have served the Lord with great dedication.

Pastor Dave became the Pastor at Berean Baptist Church in Ashton, ID, in 2012.  It is the only fundamental, Baptist Church within 100 miles in north/south directions.
