Dave’s trip to Honduras in October 2010 was his first experience with the incredible ministry that Sparrow Missions is doing. He and his wife, Jennifer, love Honduras and its people and have been on and helped lead many trips since, and Dave remains very humbled and excited to have the continuing opportunity to be involved through his participation on the Board as a founding member. Dave and Jennifer and their children Ruby, Jackson, and Eli (and another daughter coming!) are currently living in Shelbyville, Kentucky. Ruby and Jack came to Honduras with Dave for the first time in February 2014, and they expect many more trips in the future to minister together as a family and with their church, Christ Community Church in Shelbyville, where Dave serves as one of the Pastors/Elders. All for His glory!

He marvels at the amazing growth and effectiveness that Sparrow has accomplished in just a short time and anticipates more miraculous fruitfulness over the years to come.
