David (Dave) Burnette
LOT 2540 Board Member
Dave first came to LOT 2540 in December 2011 because of the Holy Spirit’s work through Marty. Marty called Dave and shared a sad story of homelessness in Rockingham County. At that time, Dave had gone through “Stephen’s Ministry” training through Greensboro Urban Ministry and was serving as a chaplain at Pathways Shelter for families.
Dave’s heart was broken for the needs of families who struggled for basic necessities. He also felt a calling on his life to help bring restoration to people recovering from brokenness. Through the power of the Holy Spirit, Dave has been able to bring encouragement and truth to people who are seeking wholeness and searching for their true identity in Christ. Dave has served on the Board of Directors for LOT 2540 from the organization’s inception.
Prior to LOT 2540, Dave had a long career as a financial planner where he served people in a variety of capacities. However, the LOT 2540 mission gave Dave the opportunity to say, “Yes” to God’s call and the courage to trust Him for all strength. The journey has been and still is amazing and tremendously fulfilling.
Dave and his wife Sandy recently moved to Louisville, KY where Dave serves as Community Engagement Leader for Thrivent Financial. Dave helps financial reps build relationships in their communities so that they and their clients can live generously and change lives. Dave loves spending time with Sandy while leading worship and word at Louisville Rescue Mission. Dave and Sandy love their sons, daughter-in-love and grandchildren.
