Pastor David H. Lydick was physically born on November 11, 1948, in Wichita, Kansas, and spiritually born-again on June 9, 1957, in the same city. After graduating from Baptist Bible College in Springfield, Missouri, he and his wife, Sandy, came to Bellevue in June, 1978, to establish an independent, fundamental Baptist church. Our pastor and his wife have three daughters, each born in Nebraska.
Pastor Lydick stands ready to serve anyone of any religious or philosophical persuasion at any time. He has a special desire to meet and help those who have not yet accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as their own personal Savior, and newcomers in the community who have no local church home.
Andrew Diorio was born on March 3, 1990, in Plattsburgh, New York. He grew up in Papillion, Nebraska, and has attended Midlands for most of his life. It was through the ministries of this church that he came to trust in Christ for his salvation, and where he began to grow in the Lord.
After graduating high school, the Lord led Andrew to Heartland Baptist Bible College in Oklahoma City, where he graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Biblical Studies. He also met his future wife, Amanda, at the Oklahoma school. Andrew has served at Midlands as a summer intern for several years and has now been the Associate Pastor since August 2013.
