Having served as a youth pastor, family pastor, senior pastor and campus pastor, Dave brings over 30 years of field experience to his current role as General Superintendent. He considers it a high and holy privilege to serve as “lead pastor” for EFC-MAYM, and is deeply grateful for the opportunity to partner with Friends who share his passion for equipping the whole church to take the whole gospel to the whole world.

A graduate of Malone University (BA) and Ashland Theological Seminary (MA), Dave completed his doctorate (DMin) in leadership and spiritual formation at George Fox Evangelical Seminary. Dave and his wife, Carol, have been partners in full-time Christian service throughout their 31 years of marriage. They have six children (Josiah, Sarah, Jeremiah, Hannah, Jessie and Jasmine) and five grandchildren (Isaiah, Noah, Isabel, Abigail and Lincoln).

In addition to his love for the church, Dave enjoys sports, nature, travel, photography and spending lots of time with his family. When away from home, Dave’s favorite destination is a solitary cycling route on the Kansas prairie or a scenic hiking trail anywhere above timberline in the Rocky Mountains.
