Darold & RichaLee Bunce
Pastor Darold & RichaLee have been married for 29 years and have raised two wonderful boys. In 1986 Pastor had everything he ever wanted; a wife, twin boys, a great job as a firefighter, two rapidly growing businesses on the side and a world of possibilities before him. But it was then, in the midst of all his success, that God spoke to his heart something that he ran from long ago. God was calling him to be a Pastor.
While working as a firefighter Pastor had time to complete his Berean classes, gaining his Christian Workers Certificate in 1987. Pastor & RichaLee served as youth pastors for the next 6 years. He then went on to gain his ordination with the Assemblies of God and served as the senior pastor at New Hope in Leavenworth, KS for the following 18 years. In May of 2010 they took a step of faith and resigned from New Hope due to a strong calling on their hearts from God telling them to return to a familiar territory, Shawnee, KS. God has now blessed the church with a new building in Kansas City, KS. Pastor and RichaLee are excited to make an impact and new relationships with those in the community.
