Rev. David J. Panning

As a second career pastor, ordained in 2006, Rev. David J. Panning brings both a lifetime of experience in the secular world as well as the excitement of new beginnings to his role as spiritual leader.


His passion is bringing the comfort and hope that God offers through His Son, Jesus Christ, to hurting people, helping them to see how God’s love can impact their lives and relationships. Come meet Rev. Panning at one of our Sunday Myrtle Beach church services.
