MEET OUR PASTOR
The Rev. Dave Inglis
Dave grew up in Denver, Colorado attending a UCC church where his father was the minister. He has always been very active in his church, even if it sometimes meant being the only one to go to his youth group. While in high school, Dave went regularly to Camp La Forêt, and served on the youth leadership team. He attended the Colorado College, where he sang in an a cappella group and studied physics. When asked how he went from physics to being a minister, he explains, “Physics explains how the world works, religion explains why.”
Before becoming a minister, Dave worked at Wells Fargo Bank in Denver and was a counselor at camp where he played guitar and served for two years as director of senior high camps. He attended the UCC General Synod in 2001, where the music, preaching, worship, and fellowship helped him realize and accept his call to ministry. In 2006, he graduated from the Chicago Theological Seminary. At his orientation there, Dave met his future wife, Felicia. They have two sons: Zach and Nathan. Dave has served UCC churches in Western Springs and Crystal Lake, Illinois.
