David and his wife, Kathi, have been First U members for 10 years. David sings in the concert choir, because he enjoys singing and belonging to a “small group.” He recently co-facilitated a Connection Circle centered around humor, during which he became convinced that everything he said was funny. David coordinates First U participation in Ministry of Caring's International Nights to benefit the Emmanuel Dining Room. He has also served on the Church Board of Trustees. He plans to retire from his day job in January, at which point he will spend much of his time painting fairly large non-representational acrylic paintings.
