Pastor Dave

David L. Michener Jr. (a.k.a. “P. Mich”) grew up in the Cleveland, Ohio area. He crossed the line to trust Christ as Savior as a young boy and sensed early on that God wanted him to use his vocation to help others. He received his undergraduate education with a Bachelor of Science in Bible at Clarks Summit University in Pennsylvania, and his Master of Arts in Ministry degree from Moody Grad School in Chicago, IL, where he met Pastor David and Pastor Dan. After serving as a pastor for 13 years at churches in Johnson City, NY and Willoughby, OH he joined the Bridgeway staff in 1998 and has been a fixture ever since. He has served in many roles, (Student Ministries Pastor, Connect Pastor, Executive Director of BridgeLeader Network, and Executive Pastor.) Today he leads our Owings Mills/Reisterstown Campus as Campus Pastor.

P. Mich loves spending time with his wife, Donna, and the rest of his family. Hiking and fishing, and almost anything else that takes him outdoors to play into his boyish sense of adventure are at the top of his recreation list, including riding his Harley-Davidson motorcycle.

His personal mission statement is, “By God’s grace, I will live, love, and lead like Jesus, while being the best version of myself.” And he encourages others to do the same with his authenticity, passion for helping others maximize their potential, and leveraging his sense of humor and gift for storytelling.

He and Donna live at Long Hoped For Acres in Reisterstown, MD.
