Dave began his ministry in 1973 as a Youth Pastor while still at Crown College in Minnesota. Dave realized that the teaching of the Scriptures was his ultimate desire as the basis for his ministry. This desire resulted in a BA in Bible and Theology from Crown College, a Masters Degree from Bethel Seminary (MN) and a Doctorate of Ministry from The Master’s Seminary in CA.
Dave and his wife Arlene have served together at churches in the Midwest and the West Coast. Dave has also served as a Police Chaplain in Minnesota and with the Iowa State Patrol. He has also served on various state boards for the CBA and as the CBA State Director in Iowa for several years.
Dave and Arlene have always been active in the community where they lived. Since they have always been athletic, they’ve been in running and cycling clubs, skied (snow and water), whatever was available in the community. While serving in Palm Springs, they have worked on the Tour de Palm Springs committee every year.
Regardless of where they have served, Dave has realized that it is imperative to teach the Scriptures accurately while making them clear and applicable to the daily lives of his listeners.0]22
