Dakota Rush

10399901_111569122105_3296978_nDakota and Sherry Rush have been ministering with Willard Community Christian Church for the past thirteen years. Sherry works at Willard Central Elementary School where Dakota substitutes on occasion. Since their three boys are grown, this helps keep Dakota ‘youthful’, so he says!

Dakota graduated from Ozark Christian College in Joplin, Mo and received his Master’s Degree from Johnson Bible College in Knoxville, TN. The Rushes have been involved in ministry their entire married life. Dakota says he loves helping people — and is certainly able to do so as a preacher, teacher and counselor.

Dakota has always enjoyed studying and continues even today to work toward yet another degree.   “It’s not about the piece of paper they give you but it is about continuing to learn and to sharpen one’s gifts and communication skills.”

Sherry is a very gifted musician and spends some of her free time working with the Worship Team, special ensembles, as well as sharing her talent through the key board and piano.

The Rush family enjoys the Willard community and lives in the community as well. If they can be of service to you and your family, please don’t hesitate to call them at the Church office number: 417-742-1222
