David Ashcraft is the speaker for the 2011 Nathan D. Maier Series in Bible Exposition. Born in Dallas, Texas, David was raised in France until the age of seven. His family moved to California and then back to Dallas for his middle school and high school years. David is a graduate of Texas Tech University with a degree in Business Administration, holds a Master’s Degree in Theology from Dallas Theological Seminary, as well as a Doctoral degree in Ministry from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, in Chicago, Illinois. He served for 12 years at Scofield Memorial Church, Dallas, as the Minister to Adults which coincided with his 10 years of service as the Director of Scofield’s “Camp El Har,” also in Dallas.
David began serving as Pastor of LCBC Church (Lives Changed By Christ) in Manheim, Pennsylvania, in February 1991. Over the past 20 years LCBC has grown from a weekly attendance of 150 people and a staff of one to a weekly attendance of 10,500 people and a staff of over 100.
As LCBC continues to grow, David reminds the church of its goal—seeing Lives Changed By Christ. That responsibility grows as the church grows—including reaching beyond the campus walls into Central Pennsylvania and by working to transform one community on each continent of the world. Because of its work around the world, in 2008 David and LCBC received “The Courageous Leadership” award from the Willow Creek Association and World Vision.
David and his wife Ruth live in Lititz, Pennsylvania, and have two children, Justin, a recent graduate of Lancaster Bible College, and Ashleigh, currently serving with YWAM.
The series runs Tuesday, October 4, through Friday, October 7, and is entitled “More Than”.
Tuesday: “More Than Ever”
Wednesday: “More Than Me”
Thursday: “More Than This”
Friday: “More Than Us”
Appointments with David Ashcraft are available through Kayla Cole in the Academic Dean's Office.
