David Ashcraft

David Ashcraft

Senior Pastor

David was born in Dallas, Texas and graduated from Texas Tech University with a degree in Business Administration – there he also met his wife Ruth, who was pursuing a degree in Interior Design. David also earned a Masters of Theology degree from Dallas Theological Seminary and a Doctor of Ministry degree from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. He served for 12 years at Scofield Memorial Church in Dallas as the Minister to Adults before coming to LCBC in 1991.

In 1991, David began serving as the Pastor of LCBC (Lives Changed By Christ) Church in Manheim, Pennsylvania. Over the past 28 years, LCBC has grown from one location with a weekly attendance of 150 people to multiple locations across the state of Pennsylvania and a combined average weekly attendance of over 17,000.

David and Ruth live in Lititz and have two grown children. As LCBC continues to grow, David continues to remind the church of its goal of introducing people to Jesus and together fully following him. That goal grows as the church grows, including reaching beyond Pennsylvania and working to transform communities across each continent of the world.
