David is the pastor of both Brookville Baptist and Richardsville Baptist Church. He and his wife Leslie have four young and energetic children Jameson, Isaac, Kathryn, and Annelise. They love western Pennsylvania and are actively involved in the community.
As a follower of Jesus Christ who has been saved by God’s amazing grace pastor David is passionate about seeing the people of God become more and more like Jesus. He longs to help our churches experience true biblical fellowship that overflows into reaching the community with the gospel of Jesus Christ. His love for the Word of God is evident in both his preaching from the Bible and helping others learn to study the Scripture for themselves.
As a native of Southern California David trusted in Christ at an early age and has been involved in ministry most of his life. In junior high and high school his enthusiasm for God grew stronger and stronger as he was involved in mission trips, passing out Bibles, home Bible studies and leadership roles in the church youth group. The more David read the Bible and learned about the Lord Jesus, the more he wanted to be about Christ work. In 9th grade he was given the opportunity to preach and has been preaching and teaching the Word of God ever since. David spent a summer as a missionary in Tanzania, Africa proclaiming the good news of Christ. He went on to study theology at California Baptist University and Southern Seminary in Louisville, KY.
If you spend any time with David, you’ll hear him talking about how the gospel is the power of God both for salvation and sanctification. He enjoys travel, photography, strategy games, reading, hiking with his family and riding bikes.
If you’re interested, he’ll be happy to buy you lunch and tell you more about what’s going on at either Richardsville or Brookville Baptist.
