Dave & janet miles

VitalChurch is made up of a team of pastors who are called to the unique ministry of helping churches through times of transition or crisis. We do this through a proven, biblically-based, three-step process, with the goal of bringing about real and lasting change in every church we serve.


Dave Miles is the executive director for the VitalChurch team. He lives in New York City with his wife, Janet. They’ve been married since June 1980. Together they have three daughters, three sons-in-law, and numerous grandchildren. Dave loves to be a pastor and enjoys the challenge of working with churches in transition. He is the author of the reTurn Resource Kit published by ChurchSmart. He loves to surf, run marathons, play golf, and read books. He has a Th.M. from Dallas Theological Seminary and a Doctor of Ministry from Fuller Theological Seminary.

“The church ought to be a pilot plant where men can see in our congregations and missions a substantial healing of all the divisions, the alienations mans rebellions has produced.” Pg. 47 Francis Schaeffer, “Pollution and the Death of Man,” in The Complete Works of Francis Schaeffer, 5:47

Dave Miles, Rich Schoenert, & Gregg Caruso
Christ Community Church
Rochester, MN
Start date: November 2018
CCC continues to work through the grief and conflict it experienced with the resignation of their long time pastor. The past seven months have been filled with ongoing attempts to bring a measure of healing and reconciliation among people in the church.

Working as a team, Rich Schoenert and Gregg Caruso, have come alongside to help Dave: Rich is on the preaching team and has worked in the development of evangelism and mission; Gregg Caruso concluded his time at CCC this June after his help with the associate pastor search process, church infrastructure, and small groups.

The church held a Sacred Assembly, an event designed to corporately confess sin and commit to move forward into the future this spring. At the conclusion of the Sacred Assembly, Dave said, “Welcome to the future,” and the church irrupted into applause.
Please Pray… for healing and reconciliation at this wonderful church whose mission is “restoring our broken world.”
