Though raised in a peace tradition, it wasn’t until the last decade that David has become and advocate for everyday peacemaking. After a trip to Israel/Palestine David became intrigued by models of peacemaking that bring reconciliation and wholeness to people and communities. David has served the Friends Church at both local and denominational levels in several locations throughout his career. Joining the staff at Friendswood Friends Church (Houston) in 2000, he has been that church’s Senior Pastor since 2005.
David graduated with a degree in Management and Organizational Development from Tabor College in Kansas and received a Masters of Divinity from Fuller Theological Seminary. He is the vice-president of the board for Family Promise of Clear Creek, the local affiliate of a national homeless ministry, and also serves as a volunteer Chaplain for the Friendswood Police Department.
David resides in Friendswood, TX with his wife Rochelle, the owner of Friendswood Family Counseling. They have four grown children of whom he is immensely proud.
