Dave and Cindy met in college and were married in July of 1984. They have two adult children and four grandchildren.
Their son Adam is an artist. His wife Elisa is a talented graphic design artist and marketing guru. God has blessed Adam and Elisa with four beautiful sons (Otto, Wilson, Sully, and Cy) who are the joy of grandma and grandpa's heart.
Dave and Cindy's daughter, Emily, works for the Illinois State Police. Her dad thinks she's one of the most hard-working, talented, capable people he's ever seen. If you need something done, ask her to do it! She's a joy to her mom and dad.
Pastor Dave and Cindy enjoy traveling (especially anywhere near a beach!), eating alfresco, attending concerts, and riding their Suzuki Boulevard around the back roads of central Illinois.
