About the President

Dave Wike and his wife, Margie, live in Carolina Beach, NC with their four kids and their dog, Happy. When he’s not serving pastors, you can find him strumming his guitar, surfing, or hanging out with his family. He loves the Lord, and feels as though he has called him to caring for pastors time and time again.
