Pastor Dave and his wife Caitlin were launched to the Kempsville region of Virginia Beach to begin what is now the Door Church of Kempsville in September of 2022. Starting as a small bible study and later moving to the current location, they have a heart for people and a vision to see Jesus change lives as He changed theirs.  Originally from the Los Angeles and Dallas areas, respectively, Dave and Caitlin both came to Virginia Beach as the result of being US Navy veterans. Eventually meeting at the Virginia Beach Potter's House, they were later married and have two sons.
