Church in its new location
In the 1960s, as the county and the congregation grew by leaps and bounds, a new church building was needed. Plans were drawn, and construction began of a new “A-Frame” on a lot next to the original church. In the 1980s, the construction of the Eisenhower and Johnson tunnels gave greater access to Summit County, and the congregation again grew in numbers. This brought a full-time pastor, and an increased vision for the gospel and reaching the lost. This initiated our tradition of summer amphitheater services to reach those locals and visitors who might not otherwise come to a church service. By the mid-1990s, DCC no longer fit the profile of a rural missionary church and had outgrown the A-Frame space. Under the guidance of Pastor Brian Post, the current beautiful facility was completed in the fall of 2002.
The new century brought an expanded vision for DCC in 2007 under the leadership of Pastor Brian Myers. The vision focused on Intimacy with God, a Caring church-family Community, and Going Passionately to reach out to meet real needs within the community and the world. This historic church continues to blossom into a vital partner with Jesus Christ the Good News in the town of Dillon and in Summit County. In 2013, under the leadership of Pastor Jim Howard, DCC continued and expanded ministry around the world including teaching in schools and leadership conferences in Nepal, Mozambique, and Haiti. The vision was also expanded to include loving, serving, and teaching in all aspects of church ministry.
