Dave grew up in the San Fransisco bay area, moving to the central coast of California for college where he met both Jesus and his lovely wife, Rachael.
Having fallen in love with the Lord, His Word, and His local church, Dave was invited into the ministry serving both as Youth and College Pastor at Calvary Chapel San Luis Obispo. The opportunity to study, handle, and minister the Word of God made him feel as if he had found his true calling in life.
Desiring to go deeper into the Scriptures, Dave and Rachael relocated to Portland, Oregon for Dave to pursue a Master of Divinity degree at Western Seminary in 2005. Moving at a glacial pace, he finally earned his degree while planting Redeeming Grace Church in Troutdale, OR.
In the fall of 2015, the question was asked, “can we better make disciples of Jesus together than apart” with Gresham Bible Church. On all accounts the resounding answer was, “yes!” and in May Redeeming Grace church joyfully folded into Gresham Bible Church.
Dave and Rachael are blessed with 5 lovely daughters and wonderful friends. When they used to have free time they enjoyed Hot Lips Pizza; spending time in the Gorge; and exploring the Hood River area
