They married the following summer. Dave graduated from Lancaster Bible College in 1981 and in 1987 from Westminster Theological Seminary with a Master of Arts in religion. In addition to maintenance, Dave has worked as a printer, butcher, sexton, and general contractor in order to get through school.
