Dave became the Senior Pastor at MLAC in August of 2017. He was drawn to the church by it’s commitment to Jesus and the congregations desire to see His name go forth throughout Moses Lake, the Columbia Basin, and beyond.
Dave came to know Jesus the day after his 21 birthday with the help of his best friend from Junior High School and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes in San Diego. Four very influential men in his life who loved Jesus helped lead him to pursue ministry. He credits these same men and a few others, and some of his favorite authors like John MacArthur, David Jeremiah, C.S. Lewis, J. Warner Wallace and Andrew Murray with continuing to shape him into the image of Jesus.
Dave married J’lene in June of 2001, and they have two beautiful daughters, Makenna and Cailyn. Dave enjoys baseball, football, bungee jumping (or jumping off of anything high), boating, working out, reading and anything that involves danger or the potential for injury.
He is most inspired by what he reads about Jesus in the Scriptures as well as the men and women who have continued to fight the good fight for Jesus regardless of circumstances.
