About Pastor David

David Bardowell

David Bardowell serves as the Senior Pastor at The Gate Christian Bible Church. He and his family founded the church in 2003. The Gate is a place for everyone. There are no strangers here, only friends we haven’t met yet.

Not only is Bardowell a gifted preacher and teacher of God’s Word, he also is an accomplished musician and singer-songwriter, with over 10 CD’s recorded and distributed throughout the world. He is also the author of the book, “Healing Steps, The A, B, C’s of Healing” (Xulon Press, 2016).

People who come and hear God’s Word at The Gate leave with the distinct knowledge of God’s truth along with the powerful experience of God’s Spirit coming alive, leaving the participant transformed. Bardowell believes that information without transformation is powerless. Transformation only happens through application of what is known; therefore Bardowell teaches with the objective of how one would apply God’s Word to his or her life.

Bardowell is married and has three grown children. He holds a Master of Divinity from Rockbridge Seminary and has studied extensively as a grad-student at Talbot Seminary. Bardowell loves God and His Word and is currently on the path to attaining a PhD in Systematic Theology.
