Dave and Kate love people and the local church. They met in 2003 while Dave was living in the Philippines doing missions work, and they were married in April of 2004. After doing ministry for two years in South Bend, IN, Dave and Kate moved to Birmingham, AL to study church planting at Church of the Highlands, one of the most successful plants in the country. In 2010, working closely with Pastor Chris Hodges (Pastor of Church of the Highlands) and ARC, Dave and Kate moved their growing family back to the city they loved to plant itown church. itown has now grown to reach over 4,000 people in weekly attendance across 3 campuses. Dave and Kate now live in Fishers, IN with their five children.
