Dave is the son of a preacher so he has been around ministry all his life. He did his training at the Cincinnati Bible College and Seminary (now Cincinnati Christian University) Upon his graduation in 1975 he was ordained by his home church in Croton, Ohio. He has been preaching now for 40+ years. “A lot has changed in those 40 years. We sing different songs and wear a little different style of clothes. But a lot has stayed the same. People still need Jesus and need to be loved.”
Dave is married to Robin who works for the State of Ohio. She is his partner in ministry. They have three grown children and 8 (almost nine!) grandchildren. For fun they officiate High School volleyball. Dave also officiates basketball, baseball and softball.
