Rev. David Filsinger, Th.B., B.A., M.A., M.Div.

Lead Cell Pastor

I have had the wonderful privilege of pastoring the Sherwood congregation since July of 1984. God has been faithful in writing his story in my heart over a lifetime. My wife Nadine serves as an Associate Pastor, leading our Worship and Prayer Ministries. We have 2 married children (Ryan and Reanne) along with 4 adorable grandchildren.

All of my life I have been an avid Toronto Maple Leaf fan! I can clearly remember them defeating the Montreal Canadians and winning the Stanley Cup in 1967…on black and white TV. You are welcome to visit the Leaf Shrine in my office! When you come be sure to bring a Tim’s coffee – Medium Double Double!

Personal Calling/Mission Statement: “My life has been chosen and appointed by God to be His dwelling place, set apart for the purpose of glorifying, loving and serving Him. My desire is to bear lasting fruit by relationally connecting my family, my parish and my community to God’s unique destiny for them. My mission is to kindle a contagious passion for service and ministry by equipping, empowering and releasing competent spirit-filled leaders in order to advance the Kingdom of God in this generation.”

Life Verse: (John 15:16 NIV) You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you so that you might go and bear fruit–fruit that will last–and so that whatever you ask in my name the Father will give you.
