About Us

God has a distinct purpose for Fort Hunt and Southern Alexandria.

God has a distinct purpose for you and every one of us.

Our vision is to obey the truth we presently know and then pursue God’s enduring plans as He reveals them to us. Then, when our assignment intersects your need, we intend to be properly prepared and available to faithfully represent His purpose.

We know that God holds the key to our safety, success and satisfaction. As His agents, we seek to deliver God’s grace and love in effective ways. If God is inspiring you to find a church home or learn more about Him through authentic worship and responsible Bible study, you will want to visit us.

We are a church in transition, looking for where God is leading in 2019 and beyond. Perhaps He is calling you to play a critical role is this transition. You may be the person or have the critical gifts that we need to make more than incremental gains towards His ultimate vision.

Whatever the case, we pray the same for you as we do for everyone – – “God, please reveal Yourself to us in increasingly meaningful ways and give us the faith to obey Your voice and draw closer through Your Spirit.”

David (Dave) Howard and his wife Sharon have lived and served in many places across North America.  Dave’s ministry career began while at California Baptist College, when he worked as an associate pastor on several church staffs. Becoming a church-planting missionary in Arizona, then a national missionary in Georgia, Dave has been blessed to assist new and established congregations in more than fifteen states and Canada.

At various times in his ministry, Dave served at: The Central Association of Southern Baptists, Phoenix, AZ; The Arizona Southern Baptist Convention; The North American Mission Board, SBC; and the Metropolitan New York Baptist Association.

Throughout his tenure as church planter, missionary, pastor or mission strategist, Dave has consistently led with a strong preference for lay ministry involvement.  Whether revitalizing churches through an Acts 1:8 strategy or discovering strengths as the basis for member engagement, he is committed to the principles of mission, purpose and engagement.

Dave and his wife Sharon together enjoy personal fitness, travel and staying actively involved in the lives of their adult children and grandchildren. If you chose to join us for a visit some Sunday please make a point to introduce yourself, we would love to meet and get to know more about you and your journey.


Paul Spring Retirement Community


We conduct a monthly service at the Paul Spring Retirement Community. This time of worship is designed to extend the Belle View ministry to this important population of our neighboring community. This service includes worship in the form of singing and bible study.

Manor Care Services


Our ministry at Manor Care Health Services is a musical one, which involves a monthly hour visit to lead residents in singing patriotic and seasonal songs as well as favorite hymns. One aspect that the residents especially look forward to is the “Manor Care Band”, where they are actively engaged in playing their choice of rhythm instruments to accompany themselves in singing traditional Sunday School songs and praise choruses.
