Pastor David M. Hutchens – Associate Pastor

Pastor Dave has served as Senior Pastor at Walnut Hill since the fall of 1989. Before entering the Ministry full time he served as an intern at Galilee Baptist Church (CBA) in Denver Colorado and at Oakland Ave. Presbyterian Church (EPC) in Pontiac Michigan. His theological training came from Denver Seminary (M. Div.). Previous undergraduate and graduate work was done at Oakland University in Rochester, MI and the University of Michigan.

Pastor Dave married his “much better half,” Anne, in 1977. Over the years Anne has served in children, youth, adult, drama, outreach, music and administrative ministries. Dave and Anne’s three grown children and their families all live in Baraboo and attend Walnut Hill.

Prior to his pursuit of the ministry he worked as a public school teacher, electrician, manufacturer’s representative, ranch hand, janitor, and environmental maintenance administrator. The experiences gained during these seasons of employment have been invaluable to him in the ministry.

The driving spiritual passions that have remained consistent throughout his years of service have been faithfulness to the truth of divinely inspired Word of God, the great commandment (Matthew 22:34-40), and the Great Commission (Matthew 28:16-20).
