Pastor Dave Braun, in his own subtle way, won the hearts of everyone that met him. His infectious laugh and smile made everyone around him feel like life was good, no matter what circumstances surrounded them. Pastor Dave's sudden departure on May 24, 2007 has left a void that will likely never be filled completely.
However, his departure also left a challenge to carry on the legacy that Pastor Dave began. As he smiled his way into people's hearts, a legacy of love was established, one changed life at a time. His 25 years of ministry on earth affected many people for God's kingdom, and we can feel him cheering us on to do the same.
