Dave serves as the Sr. Director of Worship Arts at Open Door. He first joined the staff as a sound tech, but and eventually moved into a worship director role, and now oversees the entire Worship Arts Department. He brings almost 20 years of worship leading to the team and is helping to develop a culture of authentic worship at the church. He is a talented musician, playing multiple instruments, but his main goal in his position is creating an environment with the least amount of distractions possible, so that people can make a personal, life changing connection with the Lord through worship.
Dave has served as a volunteer and on staff at a number of churches leading worship, pastoring students, and running tech. His background as a studio sound engineer has allowed him to make a number of connections with national acts like Switchfoot, Needtobreathe, Anberlin, and many others, and has only grown his love for music and technology.
Dave currently lives in Elyria with his wife Danielle and they love spending time together, whether it’s eating, golfing, mountain biking, snowboarding, or riding dirt bikes (mainly just Dave on this one). They’ve been married for 14 years and share a love of music.
