Our family started coming to the Gathering almost one year ago. At the time, I had been going through a tough time and had lost hope for the future. I had been beaten down by people claiming to be “religious”. I was so tired of feeling like I wasn’t good enough.
Pastor Dave’s messages gave me hope again.
My favorite saying of his is “If God is for us, then who gives a rip who is against us”.
He cared for us messy people in a way that nobody else has. He showed us that Christianity doesn’t have to be boring or judgemental. I will forever be grateful for him letting us know how much we are loved and that our lives do have a purpose. I now feel more confident and ready to make a difference in the world.
Even though we are deeply saddened by your passing, we know that we will see you again one day.
