Dave grew up in Williston, ND. He attended the University of North Dakota in Grand Forks, earning his Bachelor of Music in Music Education and Vocal Performance in 1999.  He went on to pursue a Master of Vocal Performance at Florida State University, which he did not complete because he was called to serve as Youth Ministry and Contemporary Worship Coordinator at Calvary Lutheran Church in Grand Forks, where he served for 16 years. 

His internship was served at St. Mark’s Lutheran Church (also in Grand Forks), and in May of 2017 he graduated from Luther Seminary with his Master of Divinity, and was ordained on May 24th, 2017, beginning his call at First on June 1st 2017. 

Dave and his wife, Kim, have 5 children and are thrilled to be a part of the community at First.  

He loves coffee, and is always up for a conversation…
