About David

For more than twenty years, I’ve enjoyed building value and increasing results for the organizations I’ve worked with. I am grateful for the leaders and mentors who have invested in me professionally and personally and in the same way, I am honored to encourage others. I admire the ministries we serve and I love helping to fuel their mission to build and care for God’s Kingdom.

I see life as an adventure—family life with my wife and three kids, enjoying God’s creation in the great outdoors, learning something new, or just about anything. I believe that sharing that enthusiasm adds to the success—and fun—in whatever you do.

My hope is that you will find these Adventures in Giving both practical and supportive and that they will help you recognize your own journey as an adventure.

I appreciate your comments and I wish you the best in all you do!
