Bobby Larew

I have been a resident of Warminster, PA for most of my life and graduated William Tennent High School. My faith in Christ developed at a young age, but I did not understand what it meant to follow Him till eighth grade. Even then I had my ups and downs, but by twelfth grade I knew I wanted to serve Him in full time ministry. After graduating from Messiah College God opened a door for me to pursue a music career in Nashville, TN. My success was limited, but the experience will never be regretted (I still have copies of my demo cd if you would like one). During my time in Nashville I realized my true calling was church ministry. The love of my life, Emily, and I have four children; Jackson, Lily, Evie and Cayden.. Beyond loving my role here at Davisville Church I have a Master’s Degree in Religion from Cairn University, enjoy exercising, scuba diving, and wearing my Orange Crush tank top when the weather is warm.

Dave grew up in the area, came to faith at an early age and started attending Davisville with his family when he was 10 years old.

He served as our Worship Pastor for 12 years until he transitioned to the role of Executive Pastor in 2018. He has a passion for enabling other staff members and volunteer teams to be effective in ministry.
