While David was pursuing his undergraduate degree at Clemson University, he felt the call to ministry and transferred to North Greenville University where he received his degree in Business and Christian Ministry. While he was there he was active in the Baptist Collegiate Ministry music team and that is how he met his wife, Katie. After graduating from North Greenville, David attended seminary at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary in Wake Forest, North Carolina.

Before moving to Shady Grove in July 2021, David served as a student pastor in North Carolina.
