Resources for Prayer, Spirituality, & Pastoral Ministry

In addition to his ministry of liturgical music composition, in recent years, inspired and motivated by the spiritual writings of Henri Nouwen and his passion for Franciscan Spirituality,David has become involved with developing resources and networks advancing Henri’s legacy, the charisms of Sts. Francis and Clare of Assisi,and other spiritual movements and how they speak to the vocation of ministry in the life of prayer. This has been realized through his involvement as an author and contributor with Clear Faith Publishing (, an enterprise committed to creating resources and connections in the areas of prayer, spirituality, and preaching.  David is also the author of many print and other media resources for spiritual growth and formation, and for those in leadership roles in pastoral ministry.

David continues to develop books and other print materials, DVD’s, webinars and e-resources for adult formation; prayer and spirituality; liturgical education and youth ministry with other publishers, including Twenty-Third Publications, Liturgy Training Publications, Saint Mary’s Press, The Pastoral Center, The National Association of Pastoral Musicians, Franciscan Media, as well as GIA Publications.   David has and continues to write articles for professional magazines and journals such as Pastoral Music, The GIA Quarterly, Catechumenate, The Liturgical Singer, Ministry and Liturgy, and Connect.
