Dave Carpenter’s life has been devoted to mission and service. Dave believes the church should be a place where believers are connected to one another, fed and equipped for ministry, and then sent out, daring to give expression to their faith in ways that touch the lives of others. Through Dave’s work in such places as Africa, Northern Ireland, Croatia, Mexico, and U.S.A. inner cities, he has learned the value of “hands on” ministry.
