David is Minister Emeritus of the Unitarian Church in Summit, New Jersey. Bringing more than four decades of experience in Parish Ministry, David has served rural, urban, and suburban churches – large, small and mid-sized congregations. He also has wide experience in Public Ministry. Before joining the Meadville Lombard faculty, he taught at Drew Theological Seminary. The author of two books, The Education of God, and Unitarian Universalism: A Narrative History, David is married to the Rev. Beverly Bumbaugh, with whom he has served as co-minister. They have four grown children, one of whom is a graduate of Meadville Lombard, and three grandsons.

“I have known Meadville Lombard as a student, as an alumnus, and now as a faculty member. My love of the school has always been tempered by a frustration that it never quite realized its potential as an institution and as a force in the Unitarian Univeralist movement. The school seems to be closing the gap between possible and actual. I am too much a realist to believe that gap will ever close completely, but it is an exciting time to be part of the school.”
