RUF International welcomes students and scholars from around the world to the University of Texas at Dallas.
David was born and raised in Colorado Springs, Colorado. He graduated with a degree in journalism from the University of Colorado in 2008 and then moved to Dallas, Texas for a job in sports broadcasting. During that stint in Dallas, David met his wife, Meredith, a Baylor graduate who was working as a pediatric ICU nurse. He began to sense a call to ministry, and they moved to Colorado in 2010 where David served on staff with The Navigators back at CU. With a desire for seminary training, they moved to Richardson, TX in 2013 for David to attend Redeemer Seminary in Dallas, and he graduated with his Master of Divinity in 2016. He and Meredith have two daughters: Evelyn, who was born in the summer of 2012, and Norah, who was born in the spring of 2016.
