The Lord saved David as a child. He saw his need to extend his Christian education beyond what he received in church as he grew up in central Texas. He attended Montana Wilderness School of the Bible outside of Augusta in 1983 and fell in love with Montana. He also met his wife there and they were married in 1987. They were blessed with two boys and one girl. Their daughter also attended MSWB and became the first student whose parents were both alumni. As of 2016 they have four grandchildren. In 2014 David and Tammy were able to move to Montana permanently, Lord willing. David has a passion to build healthy marriages and disciple men to maturity in Christ.
