My wife Jen and I live in Yorktown, VA with our five children; Kyle, Parker, Eli, Kaelin, and Ty. As you can imagine life is always pretty crazy at our house!
In October of 2004, I had the privilege of joining along side 26 other people to start Freedom Life and have been here ever since. My energy is primarily spent focusing on the Vision of our church and coordinating our Preaching Team.
In addition to serving at FLC I also have the privilege of serving as a Teaching Pastor at my mentor pastor's church, The Chapel, in Nothern Chicago. Locally, I cooridnate our churches Kingdom Partnerships with organizations like the Virginia Unity Project, and the Peninsula Baptist Association.
When I am not at church or the office, I am probably hanging with my family, at the gym, watching TV, or playing some kind of sport. I love playing/watching/talking about football. Go Houston Texans!!!!
Random Facts: I have never broken a bone in my body, I currently have four tattoos (but can’t wait to get more), nothing annoys me more than the sound of people chewing food, and I am afraid of birds.
Donte R Banks : Interim Campus Pastor
Donte Banks is lead pastor of GodChasers Community Church in San Antonio, TX. He and his wife Tabitha Banks planted GodChasers in 2014 with 12 parishioners and through their guidance, GodChasers has become one of the fastest growing churches in South Texas.
Pastor Banks delivers God’s word in a way that is relevant, concise and anointed. His heart for worship has made him a sought-after teacher in his city. Despite a rigorous childhood, God’s plan prevailed, and victory stands in the place where fear, doubt, defeat, and unbelief used to reside.
Pastor Donte is a published author, accomplished songwriter, musical director and worship leader. His life changing book, 99 Lessons for my Teenage Son is available everywhere books are sold.
“PD”, as he is affectionately called, would say that his greatest titles however; are Husband to his wife Tabitha, and Father to his sons Dominique and Saivon.
