Our Pastors & Staff


Dr. Dave White

Meet our Founding & Senior Pastor Dr. Dave White (pictured here with his wife of 27 years, Sue.)  Dr. White is a highly educated, traveled and trained teacher and intellect with a uniquely personal, authentic and creative style.  Pastor Dave has traveled to 53 countries of the world--including a stay in London, England where he studied under Theologian John R. W. Stott and a stint as a missionary in the former Soviet Union.  He gained much perspective from the many places he visited, and he brings that perspective to his understanding of our faith--a faith grounded in actual history.  And, as a student of history, he carefully brings that understanding to bear as he passionately but accurately handles the God's Word.

Pastor Dave got his Masters of Divinity from Talbot Theological Seminary where he also went on to get his PhD.  In his role as teaching Pastor at NorthPark, Dr. White loves to teach right from the Bible and share the transforming message found there.  Pastor Dave also gives overall vision and leadership through our Executive Team.

While Pastor Dave is big on the truth, Pastor Dave is careful to integrate God's grace.  He loves to put a creative twist on his message series so that the listener is engaged.  His unique way of approaching a topic breaks through the noise so that people often come away having experienced an "aha!" moment. Pastor Dave believes the Bible speaks directly to our everyday lives, and that its application is transformative!  His messages regularly make us laugh, they sometimes makes us cry--but they always makes us think.

As a sports enthusiast and a professional referee, Pastor Dave speaks in a way that men find they can relate to.  As a committed husband of 27 years and father of five, he speaks to women in a way that encourages and respects them as the pinnacle of God's creation.  Pastor Dave is fun, authentic and full of faith!
