Above everything else, Dave's gift in the body of Christ is as a pastor-teacher. In 1973 he sat together with about sixteen others in a small town thirty miles southwest of Dallas. These sixteen wanted someone to simply open up the pages of Scripture on a Sunday morning, help them to hear the truth, and then train them on how to live it in the marketplace. Dave served as their pastor at Midlothian Bible Church for 40 years and is now focusing on serving the greater body of Christ.
He received both his Th M and Th D from Dallas Theological Seminary and is an adjunct faculty member for the seminary on both the masters and doctoral level. He also teaches Introduction to the Bible at Southern Bible Institute, and World Religion at Navarro College. Dave speaks regularly for Bible Conferences and in many foreign countries. Dave's greatest joy is his wife, Mary, their eight children (counting spouses) and twelve grandkids. His life goal is to communicate God's truth through the power of the Spirit in practical and skillful ways. Through Truth Encounter we invite you to join us for his unique depth, passion, and practicality. This Bible teaching is rooted in solid study but lives in the office, classroom, and ball field.
