David's devotion to God and desire to reach out to everyone in this community are the base of his ministry and the focal point of Bay Hills Community Church. He has a unique ability to connect your life to a 2,000 year-old story in a manner that is exciting, easy to understand, and is applicable to the issues and struggles we all face.
His teachings are filled with familiar anecdotes, incorporate today’s headlines, and are told with a common-man’s perspective that is all driven by the desire to help you identify with Jesus’ message. David has a gift for not only teaching our congregation God's Word, but also applying it to our daily lives. With the help of his leadership skills, Bay Hills has grown from a small church of 40 to a church over 1000.
David was born in Chicago, but raised in Barcelona where his parents had moved to serve as missionaries for the Spanish Bible Institute. It was in his adopted country of Spain, that he accepted Jesus into his life. Spending his childhood in Europe enriched him with the colorful Spanish culture and language, and his parent’s work exposed him to a life of Christian ministry.
He moved back to the United States to attend college, where he met Sandy, and chose to enter the ministry. David and Sandy married in 1990. He completed Seminary in 1993 and accepted the call to pastor at Bay Hills. They have three children, Josh, Jessica, and Julia.
His passions permeate his teaching. Known for his humor, love for his wife & children, and his obsession for his hometown futbol team, F.C. Barcelona, God has blessed him with a remarkable ability to relate the Word so you can understand it. No matter your background, your age, or what you might have heard before, David strives to energize you to deepen your spiritual journey.
