Pastor Dave Ratliff grew up in Columbus OH. and now lives in St. Clairsville with his wife, Rachel (Sellers) who he married in 1993, and their three children, Joshua, Jacob, and Kari.
He and his family came to EREFC in 2014 when Dave began serving as Assistant Pastor. Prior to that, he and his family owned and operated a small commercial cleaning company in Hilliard, OH.
Ephesians 3: 20-21 are his favorite verses; “Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.” He says, “It’s a great reminder to me of the inexhaustible power of God unto Salvation!”
Dave studied Biology at Cedarville University and The Ohio State University. In 2013 he graduated from Luther Rice University and Seminary with a Master of Arts in Biblical Counseling (MABC).
Dave enjoys classic car shows, music, and Sunday afternoon drives. He is a self-proclaimed science nerd and dreams of someday going into orbit. Until then, he satisfies his “space ambitions” by watching the NASA channel.
