About the Sermon|Geek


David Rudd is the Lead Pastor for The Gathering, a non-denominational church in Centerville, Ohio (between Dayton and Cincinnati). David has over 20 years of pastoral experience and has served in a variety of roles in churches of all shapes and sizes (really just 3.5 different churches).

David and Marianne have been married since 1996 and have two amazing children, Emma and Liam. Emma is a student at Taylor University in Upland, Indiana. In the fall of 2017, Liam is heading to George Fox University in Newberg, Oregon. Miley and Roscoe are the four-legged members of the family. Both are rescue pups. Neither is well-behaved.

Coffee, Liverpool FC, reading, the Detroit Tigers and a growing collection of fishing shirts occupy different corners of David’s mind. He tries to write every day and hopes to someday be an author.

Sermon|Geek is a space for David to explore the craft he’s been developing for the past two decades. Here he discusses preaching methods, the preparation process, church-issues, experiments he’s trying, ideas from his mental crock-pot and more.
