Dave and his family have been attending and serving at Calvary Memorial Church since 2009, following Dave's graduation from The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in May and transfer to the Roanoke area as a corporate chaplain in June of that year. Dave worked as a senior mechanical designer for various engineering firms across the country for several years prior to his call to the ministry. Dave earned an A.S. in Architectural Studies from McNeese State University in Lake Charles, LA (1987), a B.S. in Organizational Behavior/Applied Psychology from Albright College in Reading, PA (2002), and an M.A. in Biblical Counseling from The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary (2009). Dave's delight is helping people learn and apply biblical truths to their lives. He has been married to his wife Stacy since 1981, and they have four sons: Ben (who is married and lives in San Antonio, TX), Sean, Ian, and Evan.
