Dave Davis has been the Executive Pastor of Parkview Community Church in Glen Ellyn, IL since 2009 where he works with leaders to develop people, resources and systems advancing the mission, vision and strategy of Parkview.
Before coming to Parkview, Dave spent 10 years at River Pointe Church in Sugar Land, TX where he served as the Pastor of Student Ministries, the Pastor of Creative Development and as the Executive Pastor.
Dave uses every day to advance his life mission: To help individuals and organizations move closer to their God given path. This has led Dave to serve within several non-profit organizations. He previously served as the Chicago Metro Director for Living Water International, an organization working to end the water crisis in the name of Jesus. A passion for anti-trafficking initiatives led him to previously serving on the Board of Directors for Refuge for Women and currently on the Board of Directors for NewName – both Chicago-based organizations helping exploited women transition into a new life.
Co-Founder of The Ashland Group, Dave equips churches, non-profits and corporations to find their unique purpose and develop strategies to increase impact. In addition to doing StratOp work he is passionate about bringing clarity to individuals through the LifePlan. Dave works with a variety of people, but is particularly focused on Senior Leaders and Creatives.
