David’s pastoral path brought him to Montana in 2005 as the Senior Pastor of Florence Carlton Community Church. He leads the preaching, vision, and leadership teams of the church. David grew up in a great Christian environment created by loving parents, and made the personal decision to become a follower of Jesus Christ in 1980. David and his wife Beth married in 1985. David loves music, 19th century American history, and any sport with a scoreboard. Beth loves reading, quilting, and almost anything with an artistic bent (and to quote her, is “very fluent in sarcasm”). They have four adult children and four grandchildren. David earned his M.Div./R.E. from Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary, and was ordained in 1986.
