Dave Ripper (M.Div. Denver Seminary) is currently the Lexington Campus Pastor at Grace Chapel, one of New England's historically largest and most influential churches, with five campuses and nearly 4,000 people in weekly attendance.
In addition to his role at Grace, Dave founded a chapel program for the Boston Bruins and has served as the team's chaplain since its launch in 2016.
This past May, Dave released his first book (co-authored with Paul Borthwick), The Fellowship of the Suffering: How Hardship Shapes Us for Ministry and Mission (IVP).
Dave married his high school sweetheart, Erin, a licensed mental health counselor, in 2007. They are the proud parents of two young boys, Dallas and Clive (and their yellow lab, Howdy). The Rippers originally hail from Pittsburgh, PA and love to spend their free time hiking, exploring America's National Parks, and hosting dinner parties.
