Dave Cotham | Executive Director

Dave Cotham served on the pastoral team at Church Unlimited, formerly Bay Area Fellowship, for 9 1/2 years. His role as Executive Pastor of Spiritual Development included leading the Life Groups ministry, God Behind Bars prison ministry, Celebrate Recovery, and developing curriculum for Bible studies and discipleship classes. Dave also helped launch and then pastor the Padre Island campus for Church Unlimited for 8 years.

Dave has served in the ministry alongside his wife of over 35 years, Mary Ann. They are blessed with three incredible children and eleven grandchildren. Jennifer and Chris have Landon, Averie, and Olivia. Leo and Sabrina have Ian, Bryson, Zane, Gunner, Teagan, and Sawyer. And James and Caitlin have Harper and Payton. All of them live in Corpus Christi and regularly spend time together as a family enjoying all the love God has poured into their lives.

Dave’s prior experience includes 20 years in the US Postal Service with the last 15 of those in upper level management.

Dave grew up in the outdoors with his dad and family spending much of their time camping, fishing, and hunting. This love of the outdoors has carried over to his family. With the grandchildren coming along it has become a primary focus for his family and for ministry of helping this next generation come to know and love God and all the beauty and splendor of His Creation.

Dave’s passion is identifying and raising up leaders and passing on God’s life lessons to those next generations of future leaders.
