Get to Know Dave Falcone – HOPE’s Youth Pastor and Director of Connections Ministry

Falcone FamilyTHE FACTS:

He has hiked the Belize countryside, jumped out of a plane, and helped those in need from Nicaragua and Florida to Ireland and Jamaica. An ordained minister with a B.A. and M.A. in Youth Ministry and his mission work around the world, Dave is a fearless follower of Christ, which is what makes him such an inspiring youth pastor for HOPE Church since 2007. If there’s a will, there’s a way; Dave’s go both … and a wild heart. He is passionately in love with the three women in his life–his wife, Jackie and their daughters, Adelyn and Corinne.

THE ANSWERS:

One thing I love about my role on staff …

I like that I get to wear multiple hats and that my job is never the same from day to day. We’re encouraged and challenged to be creative and experimental. Trial and error is definitely embraced here at HOPE.

A time I saw God work in my life …

The months leading up to the birth of my daughter, Adelyn and the month after she was born, I felt as though I grew to a deeper understanding of God and His love for all His children.

A book that rocked my world (in addition to the Bible) …

In addition to reading a wide variety of books relating to ministry and leadership, I really enjoy spending any free time I have reading post-apocalyptic literature. the story lines typically allow us to imagine being suddenly forced out of our comfort zones, into survival mode in a zombie-ridden world where humanity wins in the end. Good stuff!

One reason I think people should check out HOPE Church …

HOPE is a family! It’s a place where you grow in community with others who become extended family members. I’m so grateful my girls are getting to experience that love.

A hobby I’d love to get into but probably never will …

Culinary Arts … I cook every night and really enjoy it. And, I’m pretty good! But, it’s not likely that I’ll go onto any formal training as a chef.
