Meet the Elders - March 2019

The elders of Faith Lutheran Church work together as a group to assist the pastor in planning worship services and other activities and programs which strengthen the spiritual life of the congregation as a whole as well as its individual members.

In order to get to know the men serving on the Board of Elders, read a little background on each one below! If you have any questions or concerns about the church, service, or the Pastor, feel free to contact your elder via a Slack message, phone, or email. You can sign up for a Slack account at

Dave Anderson - Maureen and I met in college, we were married in 1979 and will have been married 40 years this July 2019. We moved to Moorpark in 1987 with our two children Ryan and Kristen. Ryan and his wife Shawna live in Simi Valley with our two grandsons; Kylar (8) and Declan (5). Kristen and her husband Dan live nearby in Oxnard with our granddaughter Gracie, (10 months old). I have a Bachelor’s degree in City Planning and a Master’s degree in Public Administration. Although I am now retired my career in City Planning extended over a period of 36 years serving a number of Southern California Cities. Maureen and I take great joy in our family and being so close to our grandchildren. I volunteer in a number of capacities both at church and in the community. I enjoy a number of artistic outlets and also look forward to boating, hiking, and fly fishing.

I have served as Congregational President and Elder at Faith and have taught numerous Bible study classes. I enjoy woodworking, woodturning, and especially photography. I can often be found wandering the back roads of Ventura County with my little dog Stitch photographing wildlife.
