GET TO KNOW ME

Hi, I'm David. I'm a dad of two young children, a pastor serving a church in the Chicagoland area, as well as a spouse of a pastor serving in the Chicagoland area. Having grown up on the East Coast, I love exploring my new city. I also enjoy camping, hiking, and learning more about photography. I have a variety of interests, passions, and hobbies but I have one goal:

I want to help develop communities of compassion and meaning that transform lives and impact the world.

I believe healthy communities of faith can transform the world, and that our faith communities should be places where others can explore their calling. Committed to creating space where others can live a life of discipleship, I have focused on developing programming that has helped congregations evaluate their changing identity within the community, participated in building new relevant programming, ministries, and worship experiences. I have taken part in developing small group ministries, expanding a Stephen Ministry program, and helping grow new community through various models like dinner church.

I would love to hear your story, especially if you are in the midst of community building and development.


If you want to continue the conversation, then add me on Facebook.


If you are into the business thing, then add me on LinkedIn.

I love to take pictures, and you can check them out on Instagram.

Or feel free to reach out by email. If you are in the Wilmette area, then I would love to grab coffee and hear your story!
