Pastor Dewayne Ramsey moved to Dayton in November 2001 with his wife Melody, and children, Micah and Bethany-Noel, to begin ministering at Community Bible Church. In 2008 his family grew by five as God brought Alishia, Isreal, Enrique, Nathan, and Yasmine to be a part of the Ramsey clan. By 2009, Dewayne was able to complete his Doctorate degree in Church and Para-Church Executive Leadership through Denver Seminary. His passion is to create an authentic Christian Community where individuals can reach their full maturity in Christ. His “life verse” is Colossians 1:28-29–“We proclaim Him, admonishing every man and teaching every man with all wisdom, so that we may present every man complete in Christ. For this purpose also I labor, striving according to His power, which mightily works within me.”
We have purposed to follow a Biblical Eldership model for church leadership, with Elders and Deacons serving side-by-side in the course of accomplishing our mission of making whole-hearted followers of Jesus Christ. The men who serve in this capacity meet the Biblical qualifications as listed in 1 Timothy 3 and Titus 1, and are furthermore recognized publicly by the congregation– KC Kuykendall, Paul Mackay, Mike Strang, Robert Yutzy.
The Deaconesses of CBC have the responsibility of shared leadership in meeting the particular needs of women in our congregation. These women, too, meet the Biblical qualifications listed in 1 Timothy 3 and Titus 1, and the public recognition of the congregation– Kris Kuykendall, Melody Ramsey, Korinda Wallace, Julene Tackett.
