David and Lee moved to Dothan in 2015 to be with their daughter, Anna Lee, and family including their three youngest grandchildren and joined Calvary shortly after moving. Though raised by godly parents in church, David was saved at age 30 at a men’s retreat. David and Lee were married in 1970, raised their three children in Gainesville, Georgia and now have twelve grandchildren.

After the death of their first grandson, Zach, in 2003, they, along with their late daughter, Katie (Zach’s mom), formed PURE Ministries to help inform, inspire, and train local churches to better minister to and with special needs people and their families. David is an ordained Minister of the Gospel, and, in conjunction with his role at PURE Ministries, has previously served as National Consultant for Disabilities Ministries for the North American Mission Board of the Southern Baptist Convention. He holds a Bachelor of Industrial and Systems Engineering degree from the Georgia Institute of Technology and has been instrumental in the founding and development of several technology companies.

David is the author of “A Better Way: Where Least is Most,” and, in addition to serving at Calvary, now speaks/teaches PURE Ministry in churches, conferences, college, seminaries and wherever God leads.
