Southside Baptist Church Staff
Our leadership team recognizes the authority of God, and realizes that we are shepherds who serve under the Chief Shepherd, Jesus Christ. We desire to devote ourselves to prayer and to the ministry of the Word. Our passion and goal is to equip the believers for the work of the ministry until we all attain maturity in the fullness of Christ.
Pastor David Klinedinst
Sr. Pastor
Pastor David was called to Southside Baptist Church in the summer of 2020. He grew up in Chesapeake, Virginia, and came to the Lord while serving on a Missions Trip with his youth group in 1999. In 2005 he earned a degree in philosophy from Liberty University and married his high school sweetheart, Emily. They have three awesome kids: Madelyn,  Haydn, and Ryland. He graduated from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary in Charlotte and has spent over a decade in ministry serving in urban church revitalization.  In college Pastor David was on the debate team and still loves participating in childish arguments about petty things. He enjoys reading about the big issues of life: theology, philosophy, etc., but also enjoys the smaller stuff like building a good fire and having a better cup of coffee while watching cartoons with the kids. You can usually catch him on his down time lost in his thoughts either with a book, or on a great day, fishing.
