Ministers

We are fortunate to have four men serving as ministers at Concord Street covering the areas of pulpit, youth, college/singles and Hispanic.  To read more about each minister see below.


"But you be watchful in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry" 2 Tim. 4:5.

  • David Pharr

    David pharr

    Pulpit Minister

    David J. Pharr began working with the Concord Street congregation in August of 2022. He and his wife, Amber, have 4 awesome kids—Kherington, Lukas, Linkoln, and Crockett. David and Amber met at Freed-Hardeman University in Henderson, TN. Amber is from Kentucky and is a work-from-home mom as an online teacher and an executive assistant. David is originally from South Carolina. David is a third-generation gospel preacher who has ministered at congregations in South Carolina, Tennessee, and now Florida.

     

    David graduated from Freed-Hardeman in 2006 with his B.A. in Bible. He also holds two Masters degrees, an M.A. in Religion from Liberty University and an M.Div. from Freed-Hardeman University.

     

    In preaching, David’s main goal is to be Biblically balanced and culturally relevant. He strives to share God’s Word with truth, clarity, and passion. His favorite books of the Bible are the Gospel of John and the letter to the Hebrews. The Gospel of John provides for a deep dive into the person and power of Jesus and is written in such a way that gives endless opportunities for exploration. In the book of Hebrews, he finds a presentation of Jesus unlike anywhere else in Scripture that weaves the Old Testament into the ministry and salvation of Jesus.

     

    David enjoys spending time with his wife and kids, running for miles and miles, and all things to do with the University of Tennessee Volunteers. 

  • Connor McLean

    Youth Minister

    Connor McLean began his work as the Youth Minister at Concord Street in late January 2020. He has lived his entire life in Alabama (until now), growing up in Mobile, then moving to Montgomery to attend Faulkner University, where he received Bachelor's degrees in Psychology and Vocational Christian Ministry. In October 2013, Connor began working in the Admissions Office at Faulkner, and one year later moved to Jasper, Alabama, to be the Youth Minister at Midway Church of Christ, where he served for five years. He is also currently working on a Master's Degree in Marriage & Family Therapy through Amridge University. 


    Connor met his wife Kadyn in 2011 at Faulkner University, and they began dating in 2014. The two were engaged in May 2017, and got married in Montgomery one year later. Kadyn received her PharmD in 2019, and is currently employed as a licensed Pharmacist. When they're not working, Connor and Kadyn enjoy catching up on their favorite Disney+ shows, searching for outrageous desserts, and planning every detail of potential trips they want to take. They are very thankful God has lead them to this work with Concord Street here in Orlando.

  • Dan Cawthon

    Campus Minister

    Dan Cawthon was born in Decatur, Alabama, to Bob and Gloria Cawthon and grew up in San Diego, California. His family moved to Orlando when Dan was a senior in high school and he has lived in Florida since.


    Dan attended F.T.U., now known as the University of Central Florida, for nearly three years. He later worked as a grocery store manager and then went into the food sales business. In 1995, Dan became acquainted with Wade Brown and shared his interest in helping start an Inner City Ministry at Concord Street in August of that year. Dan first served as a volunteer and later filled a part-time, paid position in the Inner City Ministry. For the past three years, he has served as the full time Inner City Minister at Concord Street. This ministry, which works with children, their families and others who live in Orlandos inner city neighborhoods, also started an inner city church in 2002 at Midtown Church of Christ.


    Dan met his wife, Magaly, on a mission trip to San Cristobal, Venezuela, that was sponsored by Concord Street. Dan and Magaly were married in December 1998, and they now have two children, Daniel and Ariana.


    When Magaly arrived in Orlando with her new husband, she spoke very little English. So, Dan and Concord member Alonzo Herrera started a Spanish service that has grown from just seven members to a larger congregation that continues to meet today at Concord and has its own full-time minister.


    In addition to his love for the Lord and reaching out to the lost, Dan enjoys the outdoors, camping, hiking, working in the yard and wildlife. He also enjoys participating in sporting activities and following his favorite sports teams.
