A GoFundMe account has been set up for Dave Bogue, former Charis Fellowship pastor, to raise money for he and his wife, Elaine, to purchase a new Mobility Conversion Van. Dave most recently led the Grace Brethren Church, Upper Arlington, Ohio, and was a popular speaker at Momentum Youth Conference. (He is the brother of Jeff Bogue, senior pastor at Grace Church, Akron, Ohio.)
On January 27, 2017, Dave was injured during a scheduled back surgery. This injury caused him to experience permanent paralysis throughout his left hip and leg rendering him unable to walk and primarily placing him in an electric wheelchair to be mobile. His wheelchair requires a Mobility Conversion van with an on and off ramp that allows Dave to be mobile and to do ministry.
Dave is still serving as the Lead Pastor at Arlington Memorial Baptist Church in Akron, Ohio, and occasionally still accepts speaking engagements. His wonderful church family has completely accepted his disability and has graciously encouraged him to continue to be their lead shepherd.
