Education & Licenses

David was born and raised in Germany and lived there until the age of 25. He worked in road maintenance and volunteered at his church until he began to wonder what God could do with him. He then joined a one year discipleship training program with OM in South Africa which had a deep impact on his spiritual life and passion for missions. Afterwards he married an amazing girl, Courtney, from Alabama who always wanted to be involved in Missions. God directed their steps to Prairie where they both earned their degrees. They left Three Hills for 2.5 years only to return in 2015. David earned his flight instructor rating and loves his work at Prairie, where it feels like they are part of a big family.
