Meet the Staff
Pr. Nevergall is a native of St. Marys, a small city in west-central Ohio. He is a 1978 graduate of Ohio Northern University with a degree in Music.
It was during his years in college that he was introduced to the Lutheran tradition. Prior to entering the seminary in 1990, Pr. Nevergall worked in advertising and marketing communications, working the final six years in this first career focused primarily on new market and new product development for Kodak, Remington, and DuPont.
The unexpected death of a young neighbor, however, gave urgency to the call to ministry. So, one year later, Pr. Nevergall, his wife, Karen, and their two young sons packed up and moved to Columbus, Ohio, to study at Trinity Lutheran Seminary. Upon graduation in the spring of 1994, Rev. Nevergall was called to Grace Evangelical Lutheran Church in Elmore, Ohio, where he served for 19 years. Pr. Nevergall came to Holy Trinity in the fall of 2013.
Pr. David and Karen are celebrating 36 years of marriage this year. Karen works as a Certified Public Accountant. They have two grown sons: John, who lives in Boston, Massachusetts, and Michael, who lives in Austin, Texas, with his wife, Rachel, and their children, Caroline and Elliott.
