He attended Asbury Theological Seminary and has also pastored at Los Fresnos UMC, Bee Creek UMC (a church he helped to start), and Harlingen FUMC.

    David enjoys golf, downhill skiing, and enjoying the outdoors. David and Lori have three "fur babies:" Sparkle and Stella.

    "I'm still amazed that God has given someone like me the privilege of being a pastor," says David. "If he is willing to offer me grace, hope, love, and joy then I'm going to do my best to offer the same to others. I'm willing to try anything and everything... go anywhere and everywhere... at anytime and every time to make sure that anyone and everyone knows how much they are loved by Jesus!"
