Our Staff


Pastor Dane Davis: Lead Pastor

Dane has been married to his college sweetheart, Christine, for twenty-one years. They have four amazing daughters (ages 9-17) who are growing up way too fast. Dane has served as the lead pastor of Impact Christian Church (formerly First Christian Church) for the past twenty years. He loves learning and teaching God’s word and seeing lives transformed by it. Dane is very excited about this new opportunity our church has to make a greater impact in the Victor Valley for Jesus Christ. Dane enjoys jogging, playing just about any sport, and taking teenagers on short-term mission trips. He is the author of "Holy Huldah: Lessons You Should Never Forget from Bible Characters You've Never Heard Of" and "Buoyed Up: Jesus' 8 Steps to an Unsinkable Life."

Christie Rahder: Director of Children's Ministries

Christie has been married to her husband Erik since 2001. They have three teenage boys who are the light of her life. In addition to working at the church, she works for San Bernardino County school as a paraeducator. She grew up in Orange County, but she’s called the High Desert home since 1995. She likes to spend time with her family and enjoys a good drive on the open road.

Javier Romero: Ministry Associate and Custodian

Javier has been serving at our church since 2012 -- first as a volunteer parking lot attendant, then a backup bass player for the Worship Team, and now in the sound booth.  He likes to record music, fellowship with other believers, and study Biblical prophecy. Javier loves serving Christ at Impact!

Holly has been married to her husband, Charlie, for over 26 years, and they have two grown children. She has been serving as administrative assistant at Impact since 2011 and counts it as one of her greatest joys.
