If the church were a university, David would be one of its most tenured professors. As a member since 1985 and part of the support and ministerial staff since 1987, David now provides care for people in the church and community, referrals for counseling, and leadership of FBG’s care and recovery ministries. His common-sense approach to life and caring might belie his academic mindset, but a Doctor of Ministry in Marriage and Family Counseling from Denver Seminary, a Master of Divinity from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, and a Bachelor of Science from Middle Tennessee State University encourages a person in need that they are receiving help from both a warm and knowledgeable source.
