  • Dan Baker, Senior Pastor


    On February 25, 1973 I accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior in my home church in Omaha Nebraska. On June 10, 1983 our Father gave me my high school sweetheart as my wife. On May 5th, 1996, I was ordained as a minister of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. On Sunday August 30, 2015 Jeanne and I met our new church family here at Appleton Christian Church, and we are so blessed to be called here to work together to share the Good News of Jesus to those who need hope. Jeanne and I have five children, Jim and his wife Marisel, Jon and his wife Monica, and our daughter Katie.  We have three grandbabies, twins  Xelenie and Magnus, born to Jim and Marisel; and Gabriel, born to Jon and Monica, all born September of 2016.  We also have a dog named Abby.

  • Alan Dyson, Associate Pastor

    My family and I accepted the calling to minister at Appleton Christian Church in April of 2016. We know that this is where we have been called and can't wait to see what God continues to do in and through Appleton Christian Church. Having been in full time ministry for the last 11 years, since graduating from Emmanuel Christian Seminary, I am excited about becoming a part of the ACC family as we grow and continue to seek God together. My wife Kari and I are looking forward to raising our three boys Nathan, Luke, and Gabe in such a close knit church.

  • Kathy Messamer, Secretary

    My family and I were transplanted to Colorado in 1995 after living over 40 years in Iowa. My husband, Kelly, and I were married on a cold day (January 11, 1980) in Iowa. We began attending ACC in August of 1998 after searching for a church home. My job description includes a number of tasks, such as answering phones, overseeing publications such as our weekly bulletin and monthly newsletter, The Apple Press, and "other duties as assigned".

  • Gary & Donna Ward, Custodians

    We met at Intermountain Bible College in Grand Junction in 1967 and were married in 1969, which resulted in 5 children and 16 grandkids. (God is awesome!) We've been the church custodians for the past 10 years, and we also serve on the church's missions’ team. Gary is a retired school district custodian.
