Offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship.

Judith Warner

Esther was saved in 1970- that’s over half a century of walking with the Lord. She has been at DFBC for 40+ years and has been an Elder for most of those years. Esther loves this church and everyone in it. Watching it grow and move in response to the Holy Spirit brings her great joy. Her passion in serving the Lord is being a witness of Christ in word and deed. Esther has four children (Cindy, Paul, Marcia, & Randy). 

Evelyn was saved in 1971 and has served the Lord ever since. She has been at DFBC for over 40 years and an Elder for most of that time. Evelyn is a very loving, yet fiery, individual. Her passion is simply serving the Lord. "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me" is her motto and firm belief. Evelyn turned 100 years old in 2023. Together with Milton (deceased), Evelyn has four children (Karen, Timothy, Robin, & Temple). 

Armand was saved in 1981, met Pastor Tony at a Bible study in 1982, and became a part of DFBC in 1987. He initially served as a deacon and was appointed to the Eldership sometime in the 1990's. Army is married to Mary Lou and they have 2 children (Armand III and Nicole). 

Judith was saved in 1975 and has been a part of DFBC for over 20 years. She has served as an Elder for the past 6+. Together with John (deceased), they have 9 children. John's children are Deborah, Robert, & Jason, and Judith's are James, Jonathan, Jill (deceased), Robin, and Sara. Gary is their unofficial adopted son. Her passion centers on connecting with people one-on-one through discipleship and missions. She says, "I am by far the most unqualified to serve on the Board of Elders." With that attitude, Judie is more than qualified.
