Desiring God Live Broadcast with Dave Harvey


Mark your calendars for this Wednesday, July 28th from 7-9pm CT to join Dave Harvey on desiringGod.org/live. (It’ll be similar to the Ask Paul Tripp event two months ago). As always, we encourage you to send your questions and feedback via Twitter, using the hashtag #dglive.

Who is Dave Harvey?

He recently released his new Crossway book Rescuing Ambition. But there’s more to this man than that. Here’s a helpful bio from the Sovereign Grace Ministries website.

Dave Harvey is responsible for church care, church planting, and international expansion for Sovereign Grace Ministries. He has served as a member of the Sovereign Grace Ministries leadership team since 1995.

Dave has been in pastoral ministry at Covenant Fellowship Church (Glen Mills, PA) since 1986, was ordained in 1988, and served as senior pastor from 1990 to 2008. He has served on the board of the Christian Counseling and Educational Foundation since 2006. Dave received a Master of Arts in Missiology from Westminster Theological Seminary in 1989, worked toward a Master of Divinity from Eastern Baptist Theological Seminary from 1993 to 1995, and in 2001 became a graduate in Westminster’s D.Min. program. The subject of his doctoral thesis was the identification and equipping of church planters.

Dave contributed a chapter to Worldliness: Resisting the Seduction of a Fallen World (Crossway, 2008) and is the author of When Sinners Say “I Do”: Discovering the Power of the Gospel for Marriage (Shepherd, 2007). Dave also wrote a chapter for Why Small Groups?, a book from Sovereign Grace’s Pursuit of Godliness series. He continues to work on other writing projects.

Dave lives in West Chester, Pennsylvania, with his wife, Kimm. They have four children and, despite his many protests, one stray cat.

Desiring God Live will be hosting more live broadcasts in the months to come. August 25 we’ve scheduled Tullian Tchividjian to be with us. So stay tuned!
