The Pond Campus, 503 Main Dunstable Road, Nashua, NH 03062

Welcome to the Pond Campus

Located in Southwest Nashua near the state line, the Pond Campus welcomes hundreds of people each Sunday from New Hampshire and Massachusetts.  Each week you’ll meet people from diverse backgrounds of all ages connecting, worshipping and enjoying the beauty of this unique and beautiful setting.  (It’s not uncommon for some of New Hampshire’s wildlife to show up too! And kids especially love watching the fish in the Pond.) Throughout the week you’ll find groups meeting, people gardening in our Outreach Gardens, and ministries to students, moms, senior adults—and more—happening. Throughout the year we do special events here like our Kids Fishing Derby, Pond Hockey, Easter Egg Hunt and Christmas Tree Lighting.  Crossway’s main offices are also housed here at the Pond.  Welcome, friends!

The Pond Campus Staff

Dave Ripper

Lead Pastor

Dave Ripper has served as the Lead Pastor of Crossway since March 2019.  Prior to his time here, he ministered as a pastor at Grace Chapel in Lexington, MA.  In addition to his role at Crossway, Dave founded and has led the Boston Bruins chapel program since the 2015-2016 season.  Go B’s!  Dave is a graduate of Grove City College, Denver Seminary, and is completing his Doctor of Ministry from Fuller Theological Seminary and the Dallas Willard Center for Christian Spiritual Formation.

Dave is married to his high school sweetheart, Erin, a licensed mental health counselor. They are the proud parents of two boys, Dallas and Clive, a daughter, Avila, and a stately old yellow lab, Howdy.  Originally from the Pittsburgh, PA, area, the Rippers love to travel—especially to the ocean, the White Mountains, and America’s National Parks.  In his free time, Dave is attempting to hike all 48 of New Hampshire’s 4,000 foot mountains.

One of Dave’s biggest passions is spiritual formation, which is the process of how people become more and more like Jesus.  He writes about this in his first book, The Fellowship of the Suffering: How Hardship Shapes Us for Ministry and Mission (IVP, 2018), co-authored with his mentor, Paul Borthwick.  Spiritual formation is also at the core of Dave's discipleship initiatives at Crossway: Monday School and the Getting Heaven into People podcast.  Dave loves to connect with people one-on-one, so don’t hesitate to reach out.
