David grew up in a pastor’s home and so, early on, was able to observe the unique joys and challenges of a minister’s life. David gave his life to Jesus Christ at the age of eleven and as a young college music student was called to full time Christian service. 
     David earned his Bachelor of Music from Houston Baptist University in 1985, then continued his education at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, earning his Masters of Church Music in 1989.
     He has served as Minister of Worship in a number of Baptist churches, often serving in additional areas of Youth, Outreach, Education, Senior Adults, and Spanish Language Ministry.
     David recently celebrated his 40th wedding anniversary with his wife Barbara.  They have two daughters – Claire, an educator who lives in Houston and Caroline, a fashion model who lives in New York City.
      In his spare time David enjoys reading, walking, composing, and collecting.
