Board of Directors
David serves as Professor of Old Testament and Biblical Languages at the Biblical Seminary of Colombia. He and his wife Karen work from dual ministry bases, spending half of each year near Hartford, Connecticut, USA and the other half in Colombia’s beguiling second city of Medellín. David and Karen have six adult children and ten grandchildren. David was born and raised in a small Pennsylvania German town amid rolling farmland between Appalachian ridges and still feels rooted in that same modestly magnificent valley. Yet the Lord’s calling on his life has taken him far from there in support of Majority-World theological education and those who shape it and are formed by it. He served for a dozen years as the president of Overseas Council (USA) and so is no stranger to the Overseas Council Network, of which reSource Leadership International is a member. David serves as a Global Consultant for reSource.
