Dave is the Teaching Pastor at Grace Fellowship Church in Costa Mesa. He and his family live in the Halecrest neighborhood of Costa Mesa. He, along with 3 other pastors and 4 other residents of the neighborhood, were invited to a Trellis gathering in the neighborhood to discuss the idea of encouraging and stimulating neighbors getting to know, care and support each other more effectively. Realizing how minimally he was connected with his own neighbors, Dave was convicted about making it real for himself before he started teaching about it in the church. Since then he has done several things to connect more with his neighbors and is seeing the value and potential impact as he shares the stories with his congregation. The ripple effect will be awesome to see.
