David grew up in Hillsboro, OR as the son of a pastor. He invited Jesus into his heart at age 3 1/2, and really came to a much deeper and more personal relationship with the Lord while attending Multnomah Bible College (now called Multnomah University) in Portland, OR.
While attending Multnomah, David grew in his understanding of God’s heart for the world and David’s heart grew as well. David eventually changed from the Youth Ministry major to the Intercultural Studies major (as well as the Biblical Studies major) for his Bachelor’s Degree.
After finishing Multnomah, David joined Wycliffe Bible Translators and served for 4 years in the Wycliffe Northwest Regional Office doing recruitment and church relations. In 2003 he married Denise, and in 2004 they went to Indonesia and served with Wycliffe there until 2017, helping with the Bible translation effort through training pastors and providing administrative support for the Wycliffe teams. While living in SE Asia David and Denise had three children: Hannah, Benjamin and Asher.
David has known about the ministry of FFICM since its inception through his relationship with Rich Gardner and Cedar Mill Bible Church and is excited to serve as the Director of Operations for FFICM.
David is passionate about seeing lives transformed by God through His Word and loves using the gifts and skills that God has given him in administration to help FFICM grow and expand in depth and breadth!
