David Linde

Placement and Credentialing


Director of Church Resources Dave Linde oversees the credentialing and pastoral search processes in the district. Holding degrees from Bethel University and Dallas Theological Seminary, Dave was a solo pastor for 14 years. He’s now been in district ministry for twenty years, connecting with pastors and church leaders in a variety of ways: coaching, advising, resourcing, teaching, encouraging, and helping organize our twice-a-year conferences. Desiring to put Jesus’s greatness on display, he especially loves to help others connect the truths we hold so dear from Scripture to heart and life in such a way that transformation takes place from the inside out. Dave considers himself widely traveled: he looks out his NCD office window onto the building where he was born. He and his wife, Kathy, live in Circle Pines and have nine children and eleven grandchildren.
