Dave has been blessed to grow up in a Christian home. The Christian heritage goes back to his great, great-grandparents as well as their service in the Church (pastors, elders, Sunday school teachers, choir members, and the like). Dave accepted Jesus Christ as his personal Savior at the age of 7 on Halloween evening, and literally had the Hell scared out of him after watching the Wolf Man with Lon Chaney. His mother and father helped with the pray and the life to follow. Dave continued to go to La Crescenta First Baptist Church, but with a new purpose. Much of his spiritual growth came from attending Grace Community Church and EV Free Fullerton while attending Biola University.
Dave's second best decision came when he married his wife, Patty, almost 30 years ago. The Brown family started attending Calvary Church of Santa Ana shortly after moving to Orange County. They have been regulars since 1989 and became members in 1991. The Lord has blessed Dave and Patty with four children who have all accepted Jesus as their personal Savior and also attend Calvary. Dave has been involved with leadership in young family Sunday School classes, and is serving on the security team, the premarital mentoring team, and as a couple are serving in College Ministries.
Dave is a businessman and has worked in sales since 1987. He is currently trying his hand in the world of real estate investments. Dave would enjoy long walks along the beach at sunset but because he doesn't live near the beach, he likes mountain biking, soccer, backpacking with this sons and dear friends, and making his wife laugh.
