Pastor Dave’s journey with Christ began as a child when he placed his faith in Jesus Christ as his Savior. He was baptized at twelve years of age and surrendered his life to the Lord Jesus when he was sixteen. He received the call to the pastoral ministry when he was thirty. He has been in the pastoral ministry for over 25 years and the Senior Pastor at Faith since 2006. He loves to teach the scriptures so they become practical to people. His greatest joy is to see Christ-followers growing in their faith and sharing their lives with others, especially those who do not know Jesus. Dave’s education includes a Bachelor of Science in Industrial Education from Iowa State University and a Master of Theology from Dallas Theological Seminary.

In 2018, he transitioned out of a career in Law Enforcement and started down the path to ministry with his wife and four children as his greatest source of encouragement. He has a passion for working with kids and young adults and seeing them grow closer to Jesus.
