Dr. Dave Gudgel is a pastor who has degrees from Westmont College (Sociology), Talbot Theological Seminary (M Div), and Western Seminary (D Min). Over the years he has been the Lead Pastor at three churches and has taught several hundred Live Events for Walk Thru the Bible Ministries.
Today Dave and his wife Bernice live in the San Francisco Bay Area where Dave is the Lead Pastor at Bridges Community Church in Los Altos. They are committed to helping people grow in their understanding of who God is and what it means to follow Him - which includes encouraging and equipping people to make disciples.
Along the way Dave has also hosted a weekday radio program and written four additional books-Before You Live Together, Before You Get Engaged, Just One More Thing: Before You Leave Home, and Bible StoryBoards. He'd tell you he couldn't have done any of that without Bernice by his side.
Dave loves to play golf and travel. He and his wife Bernice have three children, two daughter-in-laws, one son-in-law, and nine adorable grandchildren.
