Pastor Dave Claeys & Family

For over 26 years Pastor Dave Claeys has been serving in ministry. He led the youth ministry of SCCC for 12 years prior to stepping into the Interim Pastor role in 2020, and the role of SCCC Pastor in July 2021. His wife Shelley serves as Director of Youth & Family Ministries. 


Originally from Indiana, their families lived in the same neighborhood while growing up and Dave & Shelley met when they were only four years old. They even shared a tree fort in their backyard. They have been happily married for 26 years and have five children, Madeline, Molly, Canon, Meg, & Cai.


The Claeys Family has called St. Croix home for over 13 years now. The Claey's enjoy boating, fishing, hiking and spending family time together. 


It has always been their joy to disciple youth and serve others together. Pastor Dave’s

passion for St. Croix is to help people take their next steps towards the Lord no matter where they may be on their journey.

As they like to say, He is the potter, we are the Claeys.
