Dave has been on staff at GBC since 2007.
Before joining our staff he and his wife, Julie, worked as professional musicians for many years, playing (mostly) bluegrass and country music at festivals and other venues throughout the Southwest. In addition to performing, Dave operated a commercial recording studio and taught high school music as well as maintaining a roster of private students on guitar, bass and dobro.
Even while earning a living as a musician Dave was always active in some form of ministry, usually involving music as well.
In 2001, while serving another church as Director of Contemporary Music and Director of Technical Ministries, Dave sensed God was calling him to something more. And though he had studied theology informally for years, he began a more intensive preparation for whatever road God might lay out before him.
That road led here to Grace Bible Church, where Dave started out overseeing ministry teams and teaching a variety of classes. And in February of 2013, Dave was voted in as Senior Pastor.
Dave and Julie were married in 1984. In their spare time they enjoy fishing, camping, and playing music.
