Our Shepherds

David Bruner
David and Linda Bruner’s first date was for a football game at Harding University. He says, “she made eyes at me the whole game.” They have been married for 32 years and have two children (Justin who is a Youth Minister in Friendswood, Texas and Jessica who works for the prosecuting attorney’s office in Cd’A). David is a Social Worker with a nursing home in Spokane Valley. He has served as one of the elders of Dalton Gardens since 2000. When David thinks of Dalton Gardens he thinks of home and family. He says, “we really are a place to belong, a place to grow as a family and grow in the Lord.”

Dale Herboldt
Dale & Diane Herboldt both grew up on the banks of the St Joe River in the small logging town of St Maries, Idaho. They became Christians in June of 1971, and have six children and eleven grandchildren. Dale recently retired from a small wood products mill specializing in sliced veneers for the furniture industry. Diane continues to work as an assistant nurse manager for Sacred Heart Medical Center in Spokane, Washington. She is in her 37th year of service at the hospital.

Dale and Diane live on a small farm and ranch near Harrison, 50 miles south of Coeur d’Alene. They find great joy living simply as Christians and doing whatever they can to bless the lives of others. As part of the Dalton Gardens church family, they touch many lives with hope and encouragement, receiving in return blessings many times over.

Scott Rouse
Scott and Karmen met in their church youth group, where they both attended church meetings with their families. Once they really noticed the other, they knew they had found their forever loves. Married for over 40 years, they still love each other and spend all the time possible with their 3 sons, (Ryan, Chris & Adam), daughters-in-law (Emily, Nichole & Ada), and 4 terrific grandchildren (Aidan, Abby, Asher & Madilyn). They are excited to share the Lord with their family and friends. They feel blessed to worship and serve the church family at Dalton Gardens since 1993.
