Contemplative: Deep thought.

Pragmatist: Practical application. 


Dave Blanchard

I help ministers and churches.

My grandfather baptized me as a teenager. My call to ministry came a few years later. Over the last twenty years, I have served churches in Oklahoma, Oregon, Michigan and Texas. My current ministry context is nestled in the valleys of beautiful central Pennsylvania. Youth ministry has been my focus, in the context of larger congregational initiatives. I have taught ministry courses at two universities and presented at a variety of venues during this time. I have learned that ministers and the churches they serve need help - sometimes the kind that is best provided by informed perspectives outside the immediate congregation.
