Pastor Dalton Mault

Youth Pastor

Our youth pastor is the amazing, Dalton Mault. He has a passion for loving others and seeing them experience the riches of knowing Jesus. He has been married to his beautiful wife, Dani for over 10 years. They have 3 amazing children.


Dalton was born and raised in Lima, Ohio. At the age of 16 he had an encounter with the marvelous Love of Jesus and was radically transformed. He began to study the scriptures and recognize the voice of God in his life. He soon heard God calling him to “Go into the streets you know and tell them about Me”. Part of this call was realized at the age of 18 when he became a youth leader at Lima Teens for Christ (Elida Chapter). He ministered there for almost 2 years, seeing many teens including his own two sisters come to know and be transformed by Jesus.

Dalton has a heart to minister to youth and adults alike. He conveys his heart like this:

“God has been so faithful to me. His love has amazed me again and again as I’ve come to know Him more intimately over the last 17 years. He has loved me through the highest highs, and the darkest darkness. I am so humbled to have the calling of Pastor and Prophet on my life… but I am most humbled that I get to share the Amazing, Boundless, Limitless Love of God with all people, regardless of where they are in life. I know the power of that Love… a Love that washes over you, makes you whole, gives you rest and gives you peace.”
