Though originally from South Carolina where Christ adopted him into his family, Dave has spent most of the last 12 years on the West Coast. He holds degrees in history (BA) and theology (MA) from Biola University/Talbot School of Theology in Los Angeles, California. Some of the most fun and enriching experiences of his life have been: mountaineering in Patagonia for two months, meeting and winning the love of his life (Lauren), discipling and being on mission with college students, and being enmeshed in the life of the local church. Dave’s primary goal in life is to know Christ more deeply each day and help others to as well…in hopes that they would all be “disciples who make disciples”. He and his wife Lauren have a son, Graham, and a daughter, Macy Jane. They reside in the Brier Creek area of RDU. He and his wife are planning to start a husband/wife blog in the near future (This was not his idea).
