Leadership

Dustin Battles

Pastor/Elder

Dustin believed in Christ around the age of 10 following the preaching of God’s Word. He is privileged to have been raised in a Christian family and has felt the burden to pastor since he was a young child. He pursued that burden by studying at Bob Jones University.

Dustin later earned a Master of Arts (Pastoral Studies) and a Master of Divinity while serving as a member and deacon at Heritage Bible Church, Greer, SC. Dustin served as the pastoral assistant at Grace Baptist Church, Carlisle, PA before being called as the pastor of Mercy Baptist Church (then called The King’s Chapel) in 2015. Dustin’s favorite authors include Thomas Watson and Sinclair Ferguson.

Dustin met his wife, Megan, through their mutual love of music and married in 2011. They both still enjoy performing music. Dustin also writes hymns, psalms, and spiritual songs for the church. His works are published with Beckenhorst Press, Grace Music, Church Works Media, and others.

Dustin and Megan are thankful to the Lord for their two sons, Clark (b. 2015) and Jonah (b. 2018).
