David has been blessed to serve as the senior pastor of the Beltway Park Church in Abilene, Texas since 1998. He is very convinced he serves with the best eldership and staff in the country, and they make him look like a fairly decent leader. During his time Beltway has grown in attendance from about 350 to almost 4,500 on 2 campuses in a community of 120,000.
David is still overwhelmed that his wife of 30 years, Jeannette, said yes to him. Due to the experiences of adopting their third child from the Texas foster system, Jeannette leads Beltway’s ministry to help families with foster children as well as families pursuing adoption. Together they have three children: Joshua (married to Bradye), Rebecca (married to Hunter), and Zoe and one grandchild, Esther.
In addition to the joy of leading Beltway Park and spending time with his family, David enjoys lifting weights, shooting shotguns, and scuba diving.
