Pastor Dave was blessed to grow up in a pastor’s home. He has invested his life in that same calling as a youth pastor and senior pastor. In the spring of 2016, God called Pastor Dave to Walnut Park as its lead Pastor.

Dave has a gift for communicating the Bible in practical and understandable ways. Walnut Park is known for its excellence in preaching and teaching. Sunday mornings here are never dull!

Pastor Dave is often found connecting with a friend over coffee for discipleship and he is passionate about influencing others for the gospel.

Dave is known for saying things like, “The most important thing you can know is that God loves you!” Or, “I can’t wait to see what God is going to do with this situation!” Or, “God can do that!” Or, “Read your Bible, pray every day, and don’t do anything stupid!”

Dave and his wife Lori have four adult daughters, three son-in-laws, and four grandchildren.
