Dave moved to the Elsinore area in the late seventies. He attended both Elsinore Elementary and Elsinore Jr. High where he must have caught the bug for the town.
Since that day Dave has had a strong call towards the youth of Lake Elsinore and after graduating with a degree in Psychology from Azusa Pacific University, Dave and his amazing wife Kim moved back to Elsinore in 1994 to begin ministry on the school campuses and Kim has worked as a teacher in the school district. He has worked full time and as a volunteer for Student Venture. Dave was also the youth pastor at the Lamb’s Fellowship of Lake Elsinore from 2001 to 2014.
He has been described as having a “shepherd’s heart” for the youth of our city and is gifted in discipleship and teaching ministries. He loves to reach out to the broken and forgotten in society. Dave and Kim have two amazing teenage children Kaylee and Mark, whom they love with a crazy scary kind of love. He enjoys all things creative and musical, thinks life is pretty funny and loves to connect people to Jesus.
