NFC Pastor Welcoming

Dustin Maddox

Lead Pastor


A gifted pastor and preacher, Dustin enjoys creating hospitable spaces for people of all ages and backgrounds to experience God’s love, to be transformed, and equipped to join God’s healing activity in our city and world. He enjoys reading broadly with a cup of coffee, meeting new people, spending time with family and friends, and, most importantly, exploring God’s creation with his incredible wife, Robin, and one-year old son, Beckett.

Dustin graduated with a Master of Divinity from Fresno Pacific Biblical Seminary, and served as Associate Pastor at University Presbyterian Church, Fresno, from 2012-2020. In June 2020, Dustin received the call to become Lead Pastor of North Fresno Church, and he is excited about NFC’s next chapter of being a Jesus people for the sake of others.
