Dave spent five years serving in campus ministry at Truman State University in Missouri. He participated in the music ministry as well as small groups and an internship. Dave used his gifts to serve God and share His love with college students.
In 2006 he and his wife Erica, along with a team of friends, moved to Tucson, Arizona to help with a church plant called Damascus Road. It is a campus-based ministry reaching the students, faculty, and surrounding population of Tucson.
Dave was raised in a Christian home and made his faith his own while in high school. During his freshman year of college, at Truman State University in Kirksville, Missouri, he was looking for a ministry with which to get involved. A friend from down the hall invited him to an event at the Truman Baptist Student Union. Dave quickly got plugged in. Through that ministry he was able to strengthen and continue in his walk with God.
Through the partnership of the Baptist Student Union and Missions Door, Dave was appointed for campus ministry in 2003.
While serving at the BSU at Truman, Dave met Erica his future wife. They were married in February of 2005. They serve together as part of the ministry team for Damascus Road. Their first child, daughter Kaelyn Grace, was born February 8, 2011.
