Pastor Dave was born and raised in Philadelphia PA until his 18th birthday when he joined the U.S. Air Force. When he completed his four years of service in the military in 1977, he went back to his home town in Philadelphia, but due to a lack of employment opportunities Dave moved to West Texas and spent his next six years there before moving to the Sacramento area in 1984, where he has lived ever since.
Dave gave his heart and life to Jesus Christ just before his 16th birthday and rededicated his life to our Lord in 1998. In 2000 and 2001 Dave attended the School of Ministry at Abundant Life Fellowship in Roseville, and was ordained as a Pastor, and with his training and college degree in computer science he served as the Pastor of Communications at a local church in Antelope CA from 2003 to 2009. In 2008 Dave was appointed to the office of an elder here at the Pointe.
Pastor Dave has taken numerous Biblical and other college courses over the years, and has served in several ministries including teaching and mission outreaches to the greater Sacramento area. Dave has been with The Pointe in Antelope since the church was planted over 10 years ago! His passion and love for our Lord and his heart to assist others in developing a personal and deep relationship with God connects well with him serving as the Serve Pastor for The Pointe. Dave believes serving God and serving others is the greatest way to bring the “Good News” and joy to those we serve, and to bring joy and blessings into the server’s life.
Dave also finds joy and blessings in his beautiful and loving wife Pamela, his two adult children, David and Sharon, his two teenage children Brenden and McKenzie, and seven grandchildren, Kahryn, London, Phillip, Amanda, Calista, Brennon, and Violet.
“His master replied, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master’s happiness!’
Matthew 25:21 (NIV)
