Dave is a life-long Episcopalian and Texan, born and raised in Austin. He was baptized at St. Michael’s and confirmed at St. George’s. Dave combines a love of God and the Episcopal Church with a love of the outdoors, and experiences God most powerfully in God’s creation. His favorite activities include backpacking, fishing, hiking, and birding. Dave believes that all human beings are created in God’s divine image, and he is driven by the desire for all people to understand that they are beloved, and that their worthiness stems not from their own actions but from the unconditional Love of our Creator.
Dave graduated from the Episcopal Theological Seminary of the Southwest in 2006 and served as Associate Rector at St. James the Apostle, Conroe, before being called as Rector of Trinity Marble Falls in 2009. He regards this call as one of the greatest privileges of his life. Dave lives in Round Mountain (a suburb of Marble Falls) with his wife Amy, and their son Samuel.
