Pastor Dennis and Venessa started attending GHCC in 1998 and received the call to ministry. They moved to Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, to attend Rhema Bible Training College. Returning to GHCC in 2002, Dennis served as an usher and Venessa volunteered in the book store.

Dennis joined GHCC staff as Assistant Pastor in 2004 after completing a two-year internship. Over the next twelve years, Dennis and Venessa served GHCC as  Intercessory Prayer Team leaders, Home Group leaders, ushers and greeters, children’s and youth ministries, pre-marriage counseling, nursing home ministry, and building maintenance and security.

In 2016, Pastor Dennis joined the Pastoral Care ministry, which was build upon Isaiah 61:1-2: "He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to those who are bound. . .to comfort all who mourn.” This ministry includes a prayer team for the congregation,  a nursing home ministry, and a family support team for emergency situations to provide meals and groceries. Pastoral Care also offers hospital and home visitations for the sick.

“A supportive ministry to the people of Goffstown Harvest Christian Church who are experiencing the common trials and struggles that characterize life in this world, providing spiritual support to individuals, couples and families assisting them in working through pressing problems in their relationships to themselves, others and to God.”
