Dave Spangler

Dave grew up in York, PA, attending church weekly with his family. From an early age, he desired to serve God and wanted to do what was right. As he faced personal challenges growing up he wrestled with his goodness, while also working through the truth claims of Christianity intellectually.  As a college student, Dave found solid reasons for faith, and found the Lord to be a real God of grace and truth, realizing that though he could never fully do what was right, Christ has accomplished all of that for us who trust him.

Dave has found the local church to be a home of grace, peace, and truth for all the challenges of life among God’s people.

He and his wife Amy have been married 25 years. They have four children; Adam (married and out on his own), Josh, Peter, and Emily. Dave has served on the missions committee and with the boys’ ministries at Cornerstone. He loves being part of, and serving, God’s family at Cornerstone.

There is a catechism question which asks: “What is my only hope in life in death?”, where the answer is, “That I am not my own, but belong to my faithful savior, Jesus Christ.” Dave trusts God to make this only hope in Christ the resounding theme of his life.
