Meet Montana Nazarene's Leaders!
Rev. Dave & Cindy Crofford
Pastor Dave and Cindy are now in their 14th year as pastor at Montana!
Their previous ministries have taken them literally around the world, and serving in a variety of capacities. Their places of service since beginning in ministry in 1979 have brought them from their roots in upstate New York to Michigan, Kansas, Haiti, North Carolina, and Ohio.
