Our Beliefs


Dustin Sider

Lead Pastor

I’m the youngest of three boys. I grew up in a pastor’s house and loved it. Our family lived in the prairies of Saskatchewan. Shortly after high school I moved to Calgary Alberta. I felt God calling me into ministry and enrolled in biblical studies at Canadian Nazarene College. After dating Rachel long distance for several years I moved to Englewood Ohio and was married in 1998. I started to pastor in the summer of 2001 and transitioned to my role here at Fairland in September of 2009. I have two wonderful children who I love to spend time with. With my free time, I like doing outdoor activities with my family and friends.
