David Ouellette

Pastor David Ouellette grew up in southern Maine and studied classical music (saxophone) at USM. During his first year there, he met the two most important people in his life. He discovered that Jesus Christ was not a historical figure, but a living, loving friend on whom he could depend in everything. He also discovered that a certain young French horn player was who he wanted to spend his life with.
After graduation, David and Esme left with their first son as missionaries to Siberia in Russia. After thirteen years of serving the church, working as musicians, and having four more children, they returned to Maine, where David has pastored NWMC since 2011 while completing a Master of Divinity degree at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary.
