David Waterman, Field Associate, CBMC Central Pennsylvania

David Waterman

Former educator, pastor, leadership developer and investment advisor, David L. Waterman began work with Christian Business Men’s Connection in Central Pennsylvania in January 2013. He currently serves as Field Staff Associate along with David L. Balinski, Central PA Area Director, and shares the oversight of about half of the local CBMC teams in the region.

A native of New York State, Dave Waterman has lived the majority of his life in Pennsylvania. He and his wife, Patricia (Pat), graduated from the former Philadelphia College of Bible (now Cairn University) with B.S. degrees in Bible.

Dave also holds an M.A. from Wheaton (IL) Graduate School of Theology, as well as the Degree of Higher Studies in French Civilization from the University of Grenoble, France.

Dave and Pat worked in France for almost 8 years, where Dave served as leadership developer and teacher in several small churches and a Bible Institute.

Upon return to the U.S., Dave worked briefly with Search Ministries of Maryland, a home evangelism and discipleship ministry, before serving as an interim senior pastor of a medium-sized congregation in New Jersey. From there, Dave took up work in the financial services industry, where he served for 30 years as an investment advisor in both Pennsylvania and Colorado. It was in York, PA, where Dave got acquainted with CBMC and began volunteering oversight and development of 3 Central PA teams. Most significantly however, due in part to a CBMC study, God uniquely brought Dave under solid conviction of his sin before a holy God, and after years of hypocrisy, led him to true repentance and saving faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.

Subsequently, Dave began to sense God’s call on his life to serve the Lord more fully in calling men to follow Jesus Christ and grow in Him to become spiritual reproducers. God then led Dave then to complete his investment career in Colorado in November of 2012 to return to Pennsylvania to join CBMC.

Dave and Pat currently reside in Carlisle, PA, where Dave serves as an elder in their church, and where Pat directs a women’s Bible study and a “Titus 2” women’s discipleship ministry. They have 3 grown sons and enjoy God’s blessing of 13 grandchildren.
