Q&A WITH DAVID:
What personal characteristics and/or gifts do you have that make you a good pastor?
A sense of humor.â€¨â€¨
How did you know God was leading you to become a pastor? Were there any defining moments?
I didn’t want to do it, but everything else was a closed door. A big moment was when I came back from being in Ireland for three months and had to decide what to do next. I had just graduated college and I wanted to do something important or significant. My only opportunity was to go to work for a little church in Phoenix called Living Streams. It didn’t sound good to me at the time, but I’ve found and enjoyed more life and health here than ever before.â€¨â€¨
What is your vision for Living Streams?
I want the people at Living Streams to be people who successfully resist the gravity of the superficial and artificial virtues that the city of Phoenix is built upon. I want our people to thrive—not just survive their lives. I want our congregation to experience Jesus’ presence and hear His voice. The only way I know how to accomplish this is to do what the first church did. Acts 2:42 tells us that that first church devoted itself to the apostle’s doctrine, the breaking of bread, fellowship, and prayer.â€¨â€¨
What areas of ministry do you feel personally called to:
Inspiring Christians to be courageous and competent.â€¨â€¨
What characateristics do you think make a good leader?
Courage, Grace, and FAITHFULNESS.
