I am passionate about the different roles I have as a husband, father, pastor, and therapist and have been working with youth and families for the past 19 years which ultimately led me to become a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. My wife and I live in Illinois with our four boys.
Over the years, I've had the privilege to work with adolescents and adults on different continents. I've learned there is a uniqueness that connects people together if we listen. Stories. Everyone has one. We're all part of a bigger one. At the heart of it, I am a storyteller with the hope of bringing people one step closer to the person of Jesus Christ. We all have the ability of becoming more of the person we are designed to be when we are honest with our own stories and learn how to continue merging them with God's greater story.
What can you expect when we work together? Teamwork. Whether it's a student or a staff member, an individual or a group, I love engaging with others outside of the speaking times.
Let's work together to create better stories.
DAVID CREEK | Public Speaker
When we bring in a speaker for one of our camp events, there are a variety of qualities we look for. For us, it is critical that our speakers are relational and love people, who are gifted and engaging communicators through humor and stories, who enjoy connecting with campers throughout the event (and even afterward) and is easy to work with. But most importantly, we desire speakers who are committed to the absolute truth of God's Word.
Which is why we love Dave as a speaker. He has spoken at camp in a variety of settings. Our students and staff have grown to appreciate and love Dave's ministry. Dave is a gifted communicator of God's Word who loves young people!
