Minister of Music, Dr. David L. Deffner has been a church musician since the age of 16 and has taught music at the high school, community college, and university levels. He holds an MFA in Choral Conducting from the University of Minnesota and a DM in Church Music from Northwestern University. He joined the church staff in May of 2016 after moving to Las Vegas in January with his fiancée, Flo Gardipee, who was hired by the U. S. Fish and Wildlife Service to help coordinate efforts to save the desert tortoise. David loves hiking, racquetball, Flo, and his new congregation (not necessarily in that order).
