We are excited to announce that the covenant members have voted to confirm the Overseers recommendation of Pastor Dave Tilma as the next Lead Pastor! It has been a patient, deliberate, and humbling process that has led to this unified decision.
After thousands of inquiries and over 150 applications, the Overseers were led to one internal and one external candidate. Twenty-five additional voices from all parts of epikos engaged with those two candidates, and the Overseers are ready for the next step.
Pastor Dave’s Experience
When Dave was hired as our East Side Campus Pastor in June of 2015, he brought with him an extensive background in multi-site ministry. Dave and his wife, Rebecca, have served at churches ranging in size from 2,500–7,000 in Minneapolis, Portland, and Austin. Dave has been serving in a multi-site context since 1999, and he has served in significant leadership roles with oversight of 20+ staff members and thousands of volunteers. Over the past two and a half years, Pastor Dave has demonstrated and exemplified a commitment to biblical, expositional preaching and multi-site, multi-ethnic ministry as we seek Gospel transformation throughout Milwaukee. The Overseers believe Dave will bring great leadership in creating systems, leading across multiple environments, and helping us continue in our God-given vision.
