"Thank you, Lord. Thank you for leading me to Riverwood. When I had given up on life, was counting the minutes, ready to finish it all, you brought me home."
- Riverwood Family Member
David and Cheryl met just a few miles from Riverwood in the 1990s while ministering to at-risk youth from Chicago. The Lord called them to serve as missionaries in the Middle East and in the Midwest until joining the Riverwood team in 2019.
Through his years in missions, David has served as a pastor, youth pastor, interim pastor, conference keynote speaker, and preacher at numerous colleges, universities, churches, and Christian camps.
David holds degrees in Biblical Studies and Bible from the University of Northwestern - St. Paul, and a graduate degree in Linguistics from the University of North Dakota. Additionally, he is in a Doctor of Religious Studies program in Christian Apologetics and Culture.
David is author of the books Work of Influence: Principles for Professionals from the Book of Daniel, Mondays In the Middle East: The Lighter Side of Arabian Nights, and contributor to The Desert Is Alive! His latest book The Integral Life: Complete Passion and Purpose for God (forthcoming 2021) specifically teaches church members on how to integrate home life, work life, and ministry life all to serve the Lord.
Together, David and Cheryl have five teenagers who make the Cross home a fun, eventful environment.
