Meet The Coach
Dave has been married to Barb for 30 years and they live near their son and grandson in suburban Minneapolis/St. Paul, MN. Dave loves the Lord and wants to serve Him above all else.
He grew up in the New York City/northern New Jersey area where he learned to play guitar and was in rock bands in high school. His dad loved musicals, so the family often went into New York City to see Broadway musicals. Dave still plays guitar often and has opened small group sessions with worship music. He sees music as a way to reach people emotionally and spiritually.
Dave worked at the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association in Minneapolis for eight years. During Dave’s years in the Response Center, he helped hundreds of people with prayer and counseling, while leading many to Jesus Christ. Dave developed much empathy as part of that process.
It was after working at Billy Graham that Dave dealt with his own sexual purity issues attending a small group. He co-founded a sexual integrity group at Grace Church Eden Prairie Minnesota in 2006. The group is still thriving today.
Dave has led weekly small groups for over 10 years at Grace Church. He is also the Author of Live Pure and Free – The 90 Day Game Changer devotional book, which was published in 2017. The book is helping men around the globe to take steps toward freedom.
Dave regularly speaks at Iron Sharpens Iron men’s conferences and leads weekly men’s bible studies.
He is also a Gateway to Freedom alumni. Gateway to Freedom is a 3-Day Men’s Intensive weekend founded at Be Broken Ministries in San Antonio, Texas. He frequently contributes to the monthly Gateway men’s live online community gatherings as a presenter. Dave very much enjoys those opportunities.
Dave has a:
• B.A from the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul, MN.
• Did a dietetic internship at the University of California Berkeley, CA.
• Holds a certificate in Volunteer Management from Hamline University, St. Paul, MN
Dave looks forward to working with you.
