The King’s Chapel is led by elders and deacons.

Dustin Battles


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 in Greer, SC. Dustin served as the pastoral assistant at Grace Baptist Church, Carlisle, PA before being called as the pastor of The King’s Chapel in 2015. Dustin’s favorite authors include Thomas Watson and Sinclair Ferguson.

Dustin and Megan met through their mutual love of music and married in 2011. They both still enjoy performing music. Megan is the Principal Accompanist of the Cincinnati Children’s Choir and Dustin sings with the Vocal Arts Ensemble of Cincinnati. 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 have one son, Clark, born September 2015.

* While The King’s Chapel believes in a plurality of elders to shepherd the congregation, Dustin is the only elder currently. We are praying for God to raise up willing and qualified elders in our midst.
