Dave writes this in reflecting upon his work with The Daniel Foundation: 'It grants me pastoral opportunites and I really enjoy it! My gratitude cannot be overstated.' Dave has begun 'Finishing Strong' weekend retreats for men, during which time, 'we talk about Jesus, trials, pain and then pray over each man.' In addition, Dave spends ample time indiviudally with a number of men through which he seeks to, 'enocurage, support, challenge, listen and to pray.'
Dave and Jill also host events designed for women who have lost their spouses, during which time they simply, 'listen, support, love and pray' over the women who attend. As if that were not enough, Dave and Jill visit with families whose children suffer from addictions of one sort or another.
Dave presently exploring the possibility of coming on tDf staff full time, should there be ample financial and prayer support.
