Pastor Dave

Pastor Dave began his work as St Mark’s Pastor in August 2018. He has served congregations in Wisconsin, Arizona, and Iowa in small rural and large urban congregations. Pastor Dave and his wife Leslie have three adult daughters living in Sacramento, CA, and Minneapolis, MN. They have a Golden Doodle named “Oscar,” who frequently helps him with pastoral care.

Pastor Dave has a passion for helping congregations live into the future God is calling them to. For St Mark this has meant rethinking how we "do church" so that we are making a direct difference in the lives of congregation members and in the community. You will frequently see him involved in activities helping to build community both here at St Mark and in the larger community. The vision for the future that we share is for St Mark to be a caring and compassionate community; reaching out to others by making a real difference. 

His preaching style is weaving the scriptures and our daily lives, inviting us to be the voices and hands of Jesus in the world today.
