Officer Bio

Dr. David DeVries

Vice-President and Executive Committee

Dr. Dave DeVries serves as the Executive Director for the Missionary Church Western Region. He is a seasoned church planter, pastor, coach and strategist. He started Lake Hills Church, Castaic in 1990 where he pastored for sixteen years. He also served as the Director of Church Multiplication for the MCWR since 1998 and as a missionary with One Challenge since 2006.

Dave gives leaders hope, clarity and direction. He’s concerned that many leaders lack clarity, confidence and connectedness to face the uncertainties and complexity of ministry. Dave is leading the MCWR to provide meaningful connection, training and coaching to thousands of leaders and leadership teams because when leaders are fruitful, kingdom movement happens.

Dave’s experience in church multiplication led to his doctorate in transformational leadership at Bakke Graduate University. He also received a Master of Divinity from The Master’s Seminary and graduated from Biola University with a B.S. in Business Administration.

Dave and his wife Deanne live in Bellevue, Washington with their golden retriever Olive. They enjoy gardening, travel, reading, coffee and when possible, hanging out with their two adult children.
