Dave has faithfully trained and discipled lay leaders, missionaries, and pastors for the last 30 years. He was raised in upstate New York—Finger Lakes region—and in a Roman Catholic home. After graduating from Rochester Institute for Technology (B.S.), he entered the workforce as a Packaging Engineer with RCA and eventually Stanley Hardware. During this time, God worked mightily in Dave’s life to bring about saving faith through the faithful witness of his wife, Jane, and a local congregation in Southbridge, MA. Dave and Jane served as youth leaders for four years until Dave was led to attend Word of Life Bible Institute. Soon thereafter, Dave and Jane entered full-time ministry with Word of Life local church ministries for 18 years. In 2008, Dave came on staff at Heritage to oversee discipleship, outreach, and leadership training. He enjoys anything outdoors—hiking, camping, and skiing. Dave is married to Jane, and together they have three adult children: Samantha (Derek), Michael (Micah), and Daniel (Anna); they also are blessed with three grandkids: June, Betsi, and Lee.
