We have two children – Joshua and Jenna. Our son is engaged to Olivia and we're looking forward to a June wedding this year! It is our greatest joy seeing them flourish as young adults following Christ.
We were born and grew up near Springfield, MO. We have served at Riverside Community Church in the Pittsburgh area for 20 years. RCC is a multi-site church and we facilitate a team of incredible leaders at both the Oakmont and Pittsburgh Mills locations. We are devoted to discipling others and helping them to become fully devoted followers of Jesus.
David is a chocoholic, a tennis fanatic and loves electronic gadgets. Amie loves nature and a good cup of coffee. Together we enjoy traveling, reading, biking and hanging out with our family.
