Dave Martin

Eastern District Director
EFCA GATEWAY Theological Institute

After serving as Senior Pastor of the Evangelical Free Church of Hershey for 37 years, Dave transitioned to serve as the Eastern District Director of GATEWAY Theological Institute. Dave's passion is to train spiritual leaders to be effective teachers of the Word and leaders of God's people. As Director of GATEWAY for the Eastern District, Dave sets up classes of church leaders who meet one Saturday a month for a year to study through the ten articles of the EFCA Statement of Faith.  The classes meet at local churches and are facilitated by district pastors. An additional two years of study can follow GATEWAY year one.  Dave enjoys facilitating many of these classes, meeting and mentoring dozens of younger leaders in our churches.  He is encouraged by their deep commitment to the Lord and the mission of the church.

Dave and his wife Sharon live in Elizabethtown, PA.
