David Lopez comes to the Generis team with over 18 years of domestic and international ministry experience. His call to the ministry began in while he was in college attending Trinity International University. After completing his BA, he and his wife Adriana moved to Ft Worth, TX to complete their graduate work at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. Post-grad school, they served as church planting missionaries in Milan, Italy through the International Mission Board of the Southern Baptist Convention.
Upon returning to Miami, Lopez served as an associate pastor at a local church for three years. Sensing a change in direction, Lopez stepped into a different form of ministry in the non-profit world by joining Hope for Miami for almost four years serving as a project manager, grant writer, case manager, and Senior Team member.
In 2010, Lopez received an invitation by Christ Fellowship to serve as the Downtown Campus Pastor. In his time there, he was also part of the teaching team, Directional Leadership Team, and helped to start new campuses and church plants on behalf of the church. He was also the Executive Director of church's non-profit, Caring for Miami. Currently, Dave serves as one of the elders at Cornerstone Miami.
He has completed his Doctorate of Intercultural Studies through Western Seminary with an emphasis on Hispanic culture and work.
Dave, his wife of 19 years, Adriana, and their two kids live in Miami.
In his spare time, Dave likes to travel, go to the gym, and eat really good food.
