Our Pastor

Pastor Dave Martelle


Dave has served York for the over 30 years as a business owner, public servant, associate director of the local rescue mission, and now as the lead pastor of New Life Church.

His walk with the Lord began with a dramatic spiritual rescue in 2003. Having experienced the mighty power and love of God, God put an ache in his heart for the struggling, hurting and the lost. It is his deepest desire to lead them to victory in Jesus and empower continued growth through discipleship, teaching, preaching, and simply through the love of Christ. Pastor Dave is a caring shepherd of those God has given him to protect, guide, grow and love. His ministry focus is on building closer relationships between us, God and others.

Second only to Christ, his wife Jamie (aka Sweetie) is his greatest love. Collectively, their joys are found in their daughters as well as their daughters’ husbands and their grandchildren.
