Dave Eisenhauer

Dave was raised in a Christian home with the belief that Christ died for his sins. There was no formal declaration or defining moment, but by the time he was in junior high he knew in his heart that Christ was his personal Savior. During this time he was active in the youth fellowship of his church. After graduating from high school he went off to college and began to backslide. After several years of college, he failed out and was drafted and spent the next 3 years in the U.S. Army. Returning back to the U.S., he began working at McDonald’s and taking courses at the University of Delaware.
During this time the best event of his life happened. He met the most important person in his life, his wife of 42 years – Tina. After they made the decision to get married, they made the decision to find a church. After a year-long search they decided to join EP Church which they joined a few weeks before they were married there. During this time Dave spent hours with the Associate Pastor reaffirming his faith and understanding the PCA. A couple years after that they began raising a family. They had three children: Candace, Tara, and Wally.
When their oldest, Candace, attended the University of Delaware she became active with Cornerstone and the praise team. This became an opportunity for Tina and Dave to attend Cornerstone where they always felt very welcome. They continued to attend EP Church for many years, but would occasionally attend Cornerstone when they needed an early service. After one of these services they were moved by the sermon and decided to attend Cornerstone. After a year, Dave became involved with Family Promise and they started attending the Williams’ Home Group. They subsequently joined Cornerstone. After this, Orval Foraker took Dave under his wing and began encouraging him to take the Deacon training.
Dave began working on the Deacon training in 2019, but that came to a screeching halt in January 2020 when his wife of 42 years was diagnosed with cancer. After a valiant fight, she went to be with the Lord on October 6, 2020. With all the support from his church, friends, family, and especially his three children, Dave is slowly returning to society. He knows life will never be the same, but he is now looking forward to what the Lord has in store for him in the future.
