Dave was born in 1960 and grew up in Colby, Kansas with 5 brothers and 2 sisters.  He was a football and basketball star in high school, receiving much interest from many colleges.  After receiving Christ into his life at age 17, Dave decided to head to a Christian University to study theology.  He soon met Carol, the two quickly fell in love.  On December 30, 1983 the two lovebirds got married!

Dave and Carol moved to Chino, Ca to take a youth pastor job at Chino First Assembly of God Church.  For over seven years Dave served as Associate Pastor over youth, Christian education, and possibly fifteen other things.  During these years God was preparing Dave and Carol for something big.  They started to dream of a new kind of church in the Southern California area that would reach thousands of people who were far from God.

In 1991, with a few other families on board, Inland Hills Church held their first public service with 292 people in attendance.  For many years people kept showing up and they soon out grew the multipurpose room at Ayala High School. After years of praying, the church purchased land and built a beautiful campus near the 71 freeway in the Chino/Chino Hills area.

Over the last 20 years, thousands of people have come to know Jesus Christ in a real and authentic way.  Dave wouldn’t take any personal credit for this, but we know that God has used him in a huge way in thousands of people’s lives.  It is because of Dave’s humble obedience to God’s call in his life, that so many lives have been changed.

Dave has three kids and one daughter-in-law:  Andrew is a Pastor at Inland Hills and oversees the weekend services and creative arts staff. Kayla is Andrew’s wife, she is a pre-k teacher at a private school. Paige is a senior at Biola University studying to become a speech and language pathologist.  Austin is a student at Vanguard University studying film.
