David grew up in Massachusetts and came to Long Island to attend Webb Institute of Naval Architecture. His senior year he put his trust in Jesus through a combined ministry of the Sea Cliff Gospel Chapel and Glen Cove Community Gospel Church. He was baptized at the Chapel and while working as a Naval Architect in NYC, decided he wanted to delve into the Word more deeply. He took a leave of absence to attend Trinity Evangelical Divinity School near Chicago, eventually graduating with a Master of Divinity. The Elders at Sea Cliff invited him to serve the Lord full time here in Sea Cliff as a Commended Worker, and eventually an Elder. David is happily married with2 boys and 2 grand-daughters.
