Dwayne Sommersell

Student Ministries Pastor

I was born in the Caribbean Island of Trinidad and moved to Brooklyn, NY at the age of 4. I grew up in a Christian home where every Sunday morning I went to church. At a young age I prayed to receive Jesus, but I prayed that prayer many times because I wasn’t sure if it was enough. I was trusting in the prayer rather in Jesus. As I grew older, my desire to learn God’s word grew. I was given various preaching and teaching opportunities in the church and I wanted to grow in my understanding of the Bible. After talking to my pastor, I decided to go to Bible College. It was there that God truly humbled me. In my years prior, I was longing for acceptance and approval from people. I wanted the spotlight. I would elevate myself above others so that I could feel better about myself. Through my professors, the study of the Word and other good Christian books, I began to realize that God saved me not because I was a good and moral person (because I’m not), but because he wanted to for his own glory. Jesus died to save me from my sin so that I can live for him.

In 2015, while I was still in Bible college, I was given an opportunity to do an internship at a church in Chicago. It was that summer that I met my beautiful wife Mariah and we got married in August of 2016. Through God’s providence and kindness I was offered a position to serve on staff at the same church as a pastoral resident in 2017 where my understanding of the local church really grew. God blessed Mariah and I with Jeremiah in June of 2017, Josiah in January of 2019 and Aliyah in August of 2020 and Joshua in April of 2022. I am grateful that God granted me this position here at ABC to serve the students and I am excited to see Christ being formed in them.

My family and I are thankful that we can be a part of ABC and enjoy living in Cedarburg. In our free time we love to laugh, watch movies and explore the neighborhood!

Jon Vallier

Pastor of Lakeside alliance church
In response to God’s promptings, I joined Alliance Bible Church’s staff in April of 2017 as the Associate Pastor of Adult Ministries. Prior to moving to Wisconsin, I had earned my Bachelor’s in pastoral studies from Moody Bible Institute. In addition, my wife Adele and I have served in ministry in both Pennsylvania and Washington. As of 2024, I will be the Lead Pastor of Lakeside Alliance Church (a new strategic partner of Alliance Bible Church in the Northern Ozaukee area).
Adele and I have four young boys, Judah, Jonathan, Seth, and Malachi. As a result, I spend most of my time building forts, engaging in cap gun battles, and dressing up as a superhero. I also enjoy a good cup of coffee, hiking, reading, and brainstorming new ideas. In ministry, I am passionate about teaching God’s Word, designing ministries, and seeing lives changed by the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  My family and I remain excited to be a part of what God is doing at Alliance Bible Church and can’t wait to see what God does next!
