Dr. Dave Bennett returned to Trinity Bible College and Graduate School in July 2016, after having previously served Trinity for 14 years. Most recently he was a church consultant and itinerant teacher, presenting seminars and workshops helping people discover God’s design in their lives and how to serve him in ways that fit their unique profile. Prior to that, he was the Director of Student Ministries, Placement, and Ministerial Internships at TBC. He also taught Pastoral Ministries and Bible classes. Dave has broad pastoral experience as a church planter, senior pastor, and several associate pastor roles.

Dave is passionate about equipping a new generation of pastoral leaders for ministry according to their God-given design. He believes that everyone is designed by God to make a positive contribution to our world. He hopes to impact the church by providing competent leaders for America’s churches.

Dave, and his wife, Rose, have five grown children, and at last count, 12 grandchildren. He enjoys spending time with his family, music, a good book, investing, woodworking, gardening, fishing, and hunting. Dave and Rose live in a Victorian house which they have restored over the years.
