Our Pastors

Dave and Keena McNaughton were married in 1980.  Dave fully and proudly admits that he married “well above his station”.  They are extremely proud of their three children Kara, Caleb and Courtney, their son-in-law Ryne Deckard, and daughter-in-law Morgan McNaughton.  While having children of their own brings great joy to them, they have five grandchildren that light up their lives.  Kara and Ryne have two children; Elijah and Hattie, and Caleb and Morgan have Micah and their identical twins, Judah and Levi in July 2017.

Dave and Keena began their call to ministry in Dallas, TX as the Jr. High Youth Pastors at Oak Cliff Assembly of God.  Since then, beginning in the early 90’s they felt the call to become heavily involved in church planting.  Dave has been instrumental in church planting across the United States for the past 17 years and has served as a US Missions Church Planter since 2002.

Dave and Keena relocated from Texas to the Boston area to help plant The Link Church, which launched on February 24th 2013. At that time The Link was lead by their son and daughter-in-law Caleb and Morgan McNaughton.  They have played a crucial role in the church’s growth and connecting people to what matters: Jesus.  When Caleb and Morgan relocated to Colorado in December of 2016 Dave and Keena took over as Lead Pastors. They are excited for what is next for The Link and the city of Boston.
