About David & Liz

Newbies, young-uns, kids, whatever you want to call us, we’re the newest Awana Missionaries in North Carolina! Praise be to our God!

I (David) grew up in New Hampshire, and was a Sparky when my church started Awana. I progressed all the way through the Awana program, earning my Citation award as a high school senior in 2003.

I’ve fallen in love with the ministry and have seen Awana change my life and the lives of friends and family. Today, I live with Liz, my lovely wife of nearly 5 years in Winston Salem.

Liz and I met at our first college class at Union University in Jackson, Tenn. Liz was born in West Columbia, S.C. and has also lived in Virginia, Alabama and Tennessee. She is a first grade teacher in the Winston-Salem public schools. We are expecting our 1st child in November 2012!

Together, we love the Lord and Awana and look forward to reaching more and more boys and girls with the gospel of Christ. God called us to become Awana Missionaries full time in the spring of 2009, and it’s truly a blessing to see God at work before we ever really knew what His plans were. And we know He’s still working in our lives.
