Our Pastor

Pastor David Bottrell, Pastor & Founder

My Testimony

On May 8, 1969, I was born the second of six children to Pastor and Mrs. Rodger Bottrell in Moline, Illinois. Being a pastor’s son, I heard the Gospel at a very early age. On January 1, 1980, I accepted Christ as my personal Savior. God began to work in my life like never before, and two years later, He called me to preach.

At the age of 18, the Lord led me to Bible college where I met my wife Cindy.

One year after graduation, the Lord led us to Brogue, Pennsylvania, to work under the ministry of Pastor Randy Starr. The Lord truly blessed our ministry at Mt. Zion for more than a decade. As youth pastor, choir director, camp director, soul-winning director, and VBS director, my hands were full, and my heart overjoyed. In April 2003, I graduated from seminary with a Master's Degree in Ministry.

On April 25, 2004, God led us to start Hunt Valley Baptist Church where we have endeavored to provide a place where people can come to hear the Truth and to find meaning for their lives.
