The Rev. David M. Murphy

Pastor David was called to Good Shepherd in June of 2013, after completing his MDiv from Wartburg Theological Seminary in Dubuque, Iowa.  Married with four children, Pastor David is excited by what God is doing here at GSLC.  His passions for ministry include: encouraging and empowering everyone to live out their calling from God, having spiritually rich worship services, proclaiming God's word in relevant ways, and caring for the needs of everyone in the parish.  In addition to his role as parish pastor, he also serves as a Chaplain in the Navy Reserve.  Pastor David loves living in such a beautiful area where fishing, canoeing, and hunting are so easy to get to.  A proud alum of Ohio State, Pastor David cheers for the Buckeyes but also for the Packers.
