David was raised in a home where both parents were committed Christ followers. When he was six years old, God grabbed David’s heart for himself. While in fifth grade, God began to direct David to service in missions. He was discipled in a Navigator ministry while a student at UCLA. During those same years God gave David a heart for military ministry.

David began ministry to the military in 1972. He has served with Cadence International (a ministry to the US military) since 1985. Following 16 years on the Asia field, David served on the Executive Leadership Team for 13 years at Cadence HQ. Following his service there, God surprised David with a call to mentor Cadets at Texas A&M University in Fall of 2014.

It is with great joy that David meets weekly with numerous Cadets for personal mentoring and organic discipleship.

David joined New Life in 2015 and has faithfully served the church body. He is a core group member of the Covington Life Group. He also enjoys actively serving with the Welcome Team.
