Reverend David graduated from Unity Institute’s Ministerial Education Program and was ordained by Unity Worldwide Ministries in 2006.  After ordination he served as co-minister with his wife, Rev. Edna, in co-founding Unity of Loudoun County with L.U.T. Amy George.  Together they served that spiritual community from 2006 to 2012.  In 2012 the Moshers moved to Lawrence, KS in order to be part of the lives of their grandchildren.  Rev. David served the Lawrence Unity church for two years as a temporary minister (2013-2015) during their time of transition.  In October of 2015 Rev. David joined Unity Worldwide Ministry's Ministry Development where he now works primarily with Unity churches in transition, with the goal of co-creating healthy, thriving, mission-focused ministries.

Previous to becoming a Unity minister, David had fourteen years of service to the Unity Church of Lawrence.  His many roles in the Kansas community included Chaplain Ministry, Family Ministries Director, Youth Ed Teacher, leading the Wednesday Meditation Service, Worship Assistant as well as six years on the Board of Trustees. 

 

Rev. David brings to his ministry practice thirty-four years of business experience, primarily in all aspects of printing including managing printing operations for corporations and small privately owned firms.  David graduated from the University of Kansas with a degree in Religious Studies and Theater.  These areas of interest broaden his approach to ministry and sometimes show up on Sunday mornings.

 

Rev. David's central message to a church community is “NOT TWO” for he believes that we are one spirit — as and with our God, our Creator, and we are also one with each other.  Everything that exists and gives meaning to our lives is connected to this idea.  We are the child of God.  We are light in this world.  We are love with skin on and God calls

to us to wake up to the wonder we are!  This idea of oneness lies at the heart of his personal mission statement: transformIng lives by empowering others’ awakening divinity.

Seeking to transform lives and churches is the way Rev. David lives into the vision he holds in common with Unity, a world transformed by spiritual awakening.

 

Semi-retired, Rev. David enjoys the affections of five grandchildren ranging from 19 to 3 years of age. They all live within 3 miles of his Lawrence, KS home which blesses him and Edna beyond measure.
