In 1982 Dave & his wife JoAnn founded the Crisis Pregnancy Centers of Greater Phoenix, Inc. where he served as President & CEO until 2001. Under Dave's leadership the ministry grew to be one of the largest CPC operations in the country, seeing a record 170,000 client visits to their Metro Phoenix locations, and bringing the message of the freedoms of abstinence to students in over 80 schools annually.
Dave's passion is to see the Biblical values of the sanctity of human life, abstinence, and marital fidelity restored as a foundation for our lives, our families, our communities and the nations.
In December 2011 Dave was asked by the Board of Directors for CPC Phoenix to once again take the leadership of the CPC ministry as the new President/CEO. Dave assumed the role as President on Jan 1, 2011.
In 2000 Dave founded The Strategic Resource Group, Inc. and has served as its President/CEO serving nationally as a mentor and advisor to ministries in the area of vision, ministry development and strategic planning in order to influence and transform people, cities, and nations for the glory of God.
One of SRG's key projects has been to assist Life International in their effort to minister to the global mission field created by abortion by establishing Christ-centered life-affirming ministries wherever abortion exists in 183 countries around the world.
In 2003 SRG assisted in formulating and executing a strategy of restoration and reconciliation in the West African nation of Liberia. To implement this project Dave served as the international Executive Director of AHEAD – The Agency for Holistic Evangelism and Development.
In 1994 Dave founded The Amigos Group, an informal fellowship of leaders (President/Executive Directors) of large national pregnancy centers with a focus on expanding and improving life affirming ministries through fellowship and resource sharing with the goal to equip, strengthen and build relationships among leaders. Dave currently serves as an officer of The Amigos (Life Resource Group Inc.).
Dave's integrity and leadership skills have enabled him to develop meaningful relationships among leaders in the business, government, and church community. Before serving in his role in the Crisis Pregnancy Centers, Dave was the co-founder and associate pastor of a local church. Dave was also a successful business leader in Arizona for 8 years.
