David George, EPC Church Planting Residency Director, dies


DavidGeorge2Rev. Dr. David George, Director of Church Planter Residency at Christ Church East Bay (Calif.) died on September 12 following a brief illness.

He joined the East Bay staff in 2014 to direct the church planting residency program under the auspices of the EPC Church Planting Team, as well as doing general pastoral care. He previously served as Pastor of Valley Springs Presbyterian Church in Sacramento, which he and his wife, Jayne, planted in 1985.

He is survived by his wife, Jayne, four adult children, and nine grandchildren.

Memorials can be made to the Dr. David A. George Church Planter in Residence Scholarship at Christ Church East Bay. The scholarship honors George’s commitment to pastoral mentoring and church planting, and will help fund the church planting residency program—one of three currently active in the EPC. The residency program at Christ Church trains young, diverse, emerging leadership for the sake of the gospel and growth of the church in the Bay Area and beyond.

Checks should be made payable to Christ Church, with “church planter scholarship” in the memo line, and sent to Christ Church East Bay, 2138 Cedar Street, Berkeley, CA 94709.
