David Kotter formerly taught graduate economics, finance, and global business for Indiana Wesleyan University at the campus in Louisville, Kentucky. Professionally he worked for Ford Motor Company as the finance director of a manufacturing plant in Europe, as a financial analyst at the world headquarters in Michigan, and as a financial advocate for the minority supply base. After attending seminary later in life, he was invited to be one of the founding pastors of CrossWay Community Church and by God’s grace saw the church grow from under eighty people to over eight hundred.
He graduated Summa Cum Laude with four degrees: an MBA and B.S. in Engineering from the University of Illinois and an M.Div. and M.A. from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. A Ph.D. in New Testament studies is in process at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary.
David has been married to Ana for 26 years, and they have three children, Joshua, Caleb, and Lydia. Their black Labrador dog is named Onyx.
