Meet Pastor Dave

David Smith
Lead Pastor

I’ve been the lead pastor at QCAC since 2014. I’ve served as a Christian and Missionary Alliance pastor in New York State, Ontario, Canada, and Minnesota. I love Queens the most.

I met my wife, Donna, while doing undergraduate studies at Canadian Bible College in Saskatchewan (now Ambrose University in Alberta). We’ve been married a lot of years and we keep getting closer to each other. Our adult children, Élysa, lives with us, and Clayton, in California, is married to Biquan.

Interwoven within a diverse pastoral ministry, I’ve completed a M.Div. at the Alliance Theological Seminary in Nyack, New York, and a Th.M. in Christian Spirituality through the University of Toronto, and a D.Min. Degree from the Alliance Theological Seminary. Always a learner, but I’m done with education!

I like to play racquetball and read. My heart and mind are on fire for God and for people.

I’ve written “How Can Ask God for Physical Healing? A Biblical Guide.” First published by Chosen Books, a division of Baker Publishing Group. Later translated into Indonesian. Now available as an e-book. I think you’d like it. Another book or two are in process.

I also write devotionals, and if you’d like to subscribe, send me your email address. I’d be glad to include you.
