Dave Young has been pastoring churches since 1996, serving in America, Europe, and Asia. He has degrees in Bible and Counseling, and a D.Min. from George Fox Evangelical Seminary. His doctoral dissertation focused on moving churches from an oasis paradigm to missional thought, community, and practice. Dave is an advocate of being changed and bringing change – knowing that God is always deepening our dependency on Him and encouraging our experience of Him during times of transition. Dave and his wife, Maryanne, have been married since 1987. They have two adult daughters.
