David serves as Pastor for Body Life at Grace Church of the Valley. He is responsible for the life-on-life corporate ministry, as well as being heavily involved in every facet of children's ministry, from general oversight to teaching and writing curriculum. Additionally, David and Adam share various shepherding and administrative responsibilities.
David was blessed to be born into a Christian family that prized the Gospel and biblical teaching. One night following family devotions David trusted Jesus as his only way to Heaven and began a lifetime of growing obedience to Him. God directed David's steps toward pastoring from a young age. From firsthand observation of his own dad who pastored in rural Pennsylvania to camp counseling and church internships to his Bible degree in undergrad at Bob Jones University, David pursued full-time ministry training both formally and informally. David finished an M.A. in Bible from Bob Jones Seminary before completing his Masters of Divinity at The Master's Seminary. David is married to Cathy and they have three children, Silas, Raina and Meg.
