Dave Sartain


Meet Dave

Areas of ministry: Children, Students, and Marriages

When did you start attending Grace?


When did you come on staff?


Dave and Melodie met in college and have been married since 1990 (which you would never guess from their youthful appearance 🙂). They have four kids: Jonathan (28), Rebekah (24), Benjamin (21), and Caleb (15). Melodie owns an academy that partners with homeschool parents is also an actress with a kids participation show at the State Fair of Texas. Dave’s background includes work experience in management and training for companies in Texas and Georgia. During these years in the business world, Dave served in a variety of volunteer and part-time ministry roles with kids and adults.

In 2015, he moved back to Texas and was blessed to enter full-time ministry.  He has served as a children’s pastor since then and is excited to move to a role that expands his influence to include students and marriage. This is his dream job because it allows him to combine his skills of leading and training with his passion for helping kids, students and their families grow closer to Jesus and closer to each other.
