As an elder-led church, we are careful to follow the New Testament’s qualifications for men who shepherd the flock. Our leaders and staff consider it a privilege to serve and disciple the body of believers at Riverview. We hope you’ll get to know them better through the bios below—and in person!

Dave is a passionate follower of Jesus, dedicated to nurturing mature disciples and fostering gospel-centered growth.

Since 2003, he has served as the lead pastor at Riverview Church. Beyond the pulpit, my heart finds solace in the great outdoors. Whether it's hunting, fishing, or honing my archery skills, he's always found a profound connection to God's creation. Dave has been married to Melissa since 1996. Together, they have three incredible children who continually remind him of the beauty of family, love, and God's grace.
