Pastor Dave is committed to the vision God gave him of moving High Street Church of God forward and upward to being a tower of strength in the community and in the body of Christ.

His motivating Bible verse is Proverbs 3:5,6, "Trust in the Lord with all thine heart, and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct thy paths"
