God has blessed Pastor Dave with high energy, which has served him well in more than 30 years of youth leadership, including more than 10 years as Cape Atlantic’s youth coordinator. He has actively worked on urban streets and in suburban neighborhoods, most recently in a global ministry caring for refugees and those seeking asylum.
Pastor Dave’s personal theology has a focus on Jesus’ message in Matthew 25:
Then the righteous will answer him, Lord, when was it that we saw you hungry and gave you food, or thirsty and gave you something to drink? And when was it that we saw you a stranger and welcomed you, or naked and gave you clothing? And when was it that we saw you sick or in prison and visited you?
And the king will answer them, Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me.
His previous position matched this calling, and St. Paul’s work with the homeless through Family Promise and the hungry through our Food Pantry is a match, as well.
Pastor Dave is married to Donna, who is gifted in children’s ministry. They have two grown daughters, Megan and Colleen.
