LM Coaching Director
About the instructor
Drawing from his own experiences and lessons from life, occupational ministry, and the marketplace, Dave has a passion to help individuals hurdle the obstacles that rob them of the joy and passion of a life lived with purpose and a sense of destiny. His joy is to come along side of others to encourage and assist them toward discovering and developing their unique mission in life. He has traveled down a road of personal experience that has cultivated a heart, developed a perspective, and equipped him with the tools and skills to help individuals make real movement toward their destiny.
Dave’s coaching focus is life development and spiritual growth. He has a passion to help individuals move toward their calling and potential in both their “being” capacity (the kind of person they are becoming) and their “doing” capacity (the roles they can excel in).
Dave’s calling is to equip and develop authentic followers of Jesus. The mission he has from the Lord for this sea-son in his life is to help others engage God, their hearts, and their life journey really well, so that they can experi-ence personal transformation and lay hold of their destiny in Christ. A very close second to this is to train others who will do the same.
Dave earned a BA degree in Psychology at Bethany University in Santa Cruz, CA. He has over ten years experience in occupational ministry in which time he served on staff of three churches in the capacities of College and Career Pastor, Young Couples Pastor, and Senior Associate. Dave also has close to 30 years experience in the construction industry in which he served on the management team of two residential development companies, and for ten years ran his own construction company.
Dave has over 500 hours of coaching experience. His training in life coaching has been through Western Theological Seminary in Sacramento, CA. He has also received coach training through Coach22. In addition to his own coaching business, 3D Coaching, Dave serves as a coach for Bethel’s Coaching Center, Dream Culture, and Leadership MetaFormation. He also facilitates coach training and spiritual development courses and workshops as part of Bethel’s Coaching Program. Dave is also a Certified Calling Coach and is currently working towards an Associate Coaching credential with the International Coaching Federation (ICF).
Dave lives in beautiful northern California with his wife, Luanne. He is the proud dad of three sons, and one daughter, and granddad to three grandchildren. In his spare time he enjoys working around his ten acres, walking and hiking, golfing, building things, reading good books, writing, good conversations with friends, and just hang-ing out with his family. One of his, yet-to-be realized, dreams is to own a Victory motorcycle and go on some really cool road trips.
