Meet the New East Side Campus Pastor

Tilma_family-mdI’m excited to introduce our East Side Campus Pastor and his family. Welcome Dave and Rebecca Tilma and their children Hudson (10), Sophie (8), JD (6) and Ike (4)!

As East Side Campus Pastor, Dave’s focus will be on shepherding, growing, equipping and building the East Side Campus community. Both he and Rebecca have a passion for personal discipleship. They love helping people connect with Jesus and grow in their faith, and they love building a strong church community.

Dave has had a connection to epikos for several years. I (Pastor Danny) became friends while Dave was planting Ezra church in Madison in 2009.  We often exchanged ideas and resources as we both worked at church planting.   Several members of the epikos worship team helped launch Ezra’s first campus.

Prior to that, Dave and Rebecca had a variety of full-time ministry experiences. Dave served for 12 years in large churches in several cities around the country: St. Paul, Minnesota, Portland, Oregon and Austin, Texas. Six years ago they moved to Madison, WI to plant Ezra Church. During that time Ezra went multi-site and helped plant a daughter church on the west side of Madison.In addition to spending time with friends and family, Dave and Rebecca also love to snowboard, meet new people, read, hike, drink great coffee, order random things at restaurants, snowshoe, play bocce ball and throw really fun parties. In the summer you’ll find them on the deck near the grill, sometimes even grilling things.We thank God for bringing the Tilmas to the epikos team, and we are so excited for how they will strengthen and grow our East Side Campus!
We are holding a special reception for the Tilmas at the Eastside on July 12th following the 10:30 service. With the addition of Dave as East Side Campus Pastor, I’m sure you’ll want to meet them and may have questions for what this means for our church family.   This is open to everyone both West Allis and East Side Campuses.

* Please continue to pray for epikos as our staff grows.  God has been so good to us in providing amazing people to help fulfill the mission of making more and better disciples.  Check the current “staff and leaders” page to see more updates.  We are getting closer to hiring our North Side Campus Pastor so please keep that in your prayers as well.
