In June of 2012, Dave returned to his hometown to serve as the associate pastor at their sending church. At Christ Community Church, Dave led the youth ministry, coordinated adult small groups, facilitated leadership development courses, and oversaw the evangelism & discipleship team.
Dave and Anna have now been married for 15 years, and their children, Abigail & Caleb, are now 13 and 11 years old. Dave has a passion to encourage, develop and coach leaders. He loves to come alongside people who are suffering, assist in the preaching of God’s Word, and facilitate prayer, local outreach, and our involvement in global ministry. When time allows, Dave also enjoys a pick up game of basketball, racquetball, a round of golf, or a strategic board game with his family or firstname.lastname@example.org
