Dave Bender

Dave is retired from Steelcase. He met his wife Dorrie in 1980 and they were married shortly after in January of 1981. They have three children and currently seven grandchildren : Donique and Ryan Kosters with Jude, Gemma and Cora who live in Rockford, Danielle and Mike Arnold with Clair and Evelyn who live in Texas and Dylan and Rachael Bender with Ellee and Ella (and one on the way) from Middleville. Dave and Dorrie began coming to Whitneyville in 2016 and joined in early 2017. They both serve on the missions team. One of Dave’s favorite scriptures is Ephesians 2:8-9: For by grace you have been saved through faith and this is not your doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast.
