Assistant Pastor of Discipleship & Congregational Care
Emanuel “Manny” David serves as Assistant Pastor of Discipleship and Congregational Care at St. Andrews. He has the joy of giving vision to the areas of pastoral care, deacon ministries, discipleship of the Men at St. Andrews, and inspiring the church body to grow deeper in their spiritual, emotional, and theological formation. Manny earned his undergraduate degree in Theology from SBC Bible College, and his Master of Divinity with an emphasis in Theology and Ethics from Fuller Theological Seminary. Over the course of 20 years of vocational ministry, Manny has pastored in a variety of areas to include Youth and Young Adults Ministries, Worship and Creative Arts, and Spiritual Formation and Discipleship. His unique blend of giftings help him lead effectively, shepherd people faithfully, and convey scriptural truths clearly and thoughtfully within multi-cultural and pluralistic contexts. He is married to his beautiful wife, Shanna, and help raise their son, Briley. Manny is a Los Angeles Laker fan, cherishes warm lattes, smokes his Wagyu meats to perfection, and enjoys good music and a good book – often a “nerdy” theology book.
