About Pastor David
I am originally from Florida and have lived in Iowa since 1983. I have been married to Karen for 30+ years and we have raised five children. I hold a Master of Divinity degree from St Paul School of Theology in Kansas City. I served United Methodist churches as a pastor for 12 years.
I enjoy reading, watching a little TV, and playing board and word games like Quiddler, Five Second Rule, trivia and such. I also love college sports. Growing up in Florida I still love and support the University of Florida Gators. I occasionally get the opportunity to travel and watch the Gators play. I’ve been very fortunate to watch Gator teams win three of our most recent national championships.
I also love the ocean. I grew up near the Atlantic and it is fascinating and relaxing to sit and watch the waves as they crash into the shore.
