David & Pam Dick
- Our Local
- Our Reach
- Our Self
David and Pam Dick serve in eastern Wyoming, using a variety of methods to reach those in out-of-the-way rural places. Some people live closer to one of the small towns, while others are more isolated, living 50+ miles away from the closest store with bread, gas, and other needs. The communities in eastern Wyoming are comprised of fiercely independent and hard working people. Many in this rural area who work as miners have recently lost their jobs, resulting in financial stress and sometimes the loss of homes.
While the area has remained fairly conservative, more and more people do not see a need for God or religion. David and Pam have seen instances of “belief” in God, but there is a lack of personal relationships with the Savior. The greatest spiritual need is for the truth of the gospel to be preached in love through action and outreach.
After seeing the need in their rural community, the Dicks began ministering to ranching families in areas where other ministries were not available. They have started home Bible studies, Sunday services, men’s night, Vacation Bible Schools, and Camp Grace. In addition, they help with physical needs in the community, like roofing and other construction projects.
David and Pam’s main goal is to evangelize and disciple those in their rural community to live out their faith on a daily basis. They often meet in different ranchers’ homes to lead discussions on the Bible. Allowing the ranchers to talk through “life questions”, they are able to apply the Bible lessons they study to their everyday lives. The group serves to strengthen the community and lead them to a better understanding of the Bible.
The Dicks have served as InFaith field staff since 1984.
“I know that God has called and trained me to reach this culture of people in Wyoming,” David explains. “This is where God has called us to go. He has a place for you, too; a place where you fit, and it is with Him.”
