Our Staff


    Lead Pastor
    • Dave and Cindy

    Dave has been married to his lovely wife, Cindy, since 1988. They have three daughters, Sarah, Hannah, and Moriah, and were thrilled to add a son-in-law to the family in 2020 and their first grandchild in 2022. 

    Dave received his Masters of Arts in Ministry from Moody Bible Institute. After serving at First Baptist Church in South Portland, Maine for fourteen years, in 2002, he and Cindy moved their family to Concord, New Hampshire where Dave became the Youth Pastor of CenterPoint Church. During his time there he served in various roles including Youth Pastor, Executive Pastor, Co-Senior Pastor, and acting Senior Pastor.

    On March 10, 2013, Dave and Cindy were delighted to receive a unanimous invitation to come and serve as pastor at Seneca Community Church. Since his arrival that April, he has been committed to serving alongside the Leadership Team, Ministry Leaders, and family of SCC as they strive to make a difference in people’s lives wherever they are. Dave is passionate about seeing people integrated into the life of Seneca Community as their relationship with God grows.

    When he is not busy with family or church, Dave can be found winter camping, hiking, skiing, or cycling the country roads of the Finger Lakes.


    • Modeling how Jesus can increasingly become more his life’s center
    • Mastering the study and presentation of God’s Word (a life time pursuit)
    • Moving the church toward vision & mission
    • Multiplying leadership within the church

    Your job is to teach them the rules and instructions, to show them how to live, what to do. And then you need to keep a sharp eye out for competent men-men who fear God, men of integrity, men who are incorruptible-and appoint them as leaders over groups… If you do this and God so commands, you will be able to stand the strain, and all these people will go home satisfied. – Exodus 18:20-23

  • Leadership Team

    We take the responsibility and privilege of serving on the Leadership Team (Elders) very seriously.  Our desire is to steward the church’s God-given mission and vision to the best of our ability while following God's leadership in all that we do.

    Mission (why we exist): We hope to be “making a difference wherever you are” by leading people into a growing relationship with God through Christ.

    Vision (why we do what we do): We seek to become a multigenerational church that has an undeniable cultural impact on the Finger Lakes by lifting up Jesus Christ, teaching God’s Word, and making disciples who love and live like Jesus.

    We hope and pray you will engage at SCC along with us, making a difference and making disciples who love and live like Jesus!
