About Me

Written on October 19, 2009 – 3:09 pm | by dave |

Welcome to the home base for David C. “Dave” Shields, me! This site is to provide an online reference for those wishing to know more about me as a professional minister or professional IT worker including prospective employers. It is, in no way, designed to sell services or to be used for soliciting purposes.

I am a working professional with an AAS in Information Technology, a BS in Management of Information Systems, and a Master of Science in Cybersecurity. I am married to my high school sweetheart. We have enjoyed 21 years as a couple and 16 years married. We have 5 children from ages 15-6 including two special needs children.

I accepted the call to ministry for the first time as a youth pastor for Agape Baptist Church in Blanchard, OK. However, after accomplishing the tasks God needed me to perform, I respectfully submitted my resignation on May 26, 2010.  After searching for various churches we found our way to CrossPointe Church, a multi-denominational church near our home where I served until God called me to Kansas City in 2018. I now serve as a key member of the Outreach team for Grace Church in Kansas City, MO. I lead the Men’s Coffee small group, I lead the Freedom Fire Urban Outreach ministry, and I am an active member of the Production crew, responsible for running sound for worship events at our main campus.
