Dave Larson - Soul Shepherding Dave Larson - Soul Shepherding

Dave serves with Soul Shepherding as a Spiritual Director and Coach. He is the Lead Pastor for a large church in California’s Central Valley, where he has served for nearly 30 years. 

He has an M.A. degree from California Theological Seminary. Also, he and his wife Gena completed the Soul Shepherding Institute and Spiritual Direction certificate training.

In a season of weariness and spiritual dryness he went on Sabbatical and found Soul Shepherding. Today more than ever he is passionate to help people move one step closer to Jesus and to help leaders and pastors find a healthy rhythm of ministry for the long haul. He loves to engage with others in ministry and is especially appreciated for his authenticity, grace, and humor.  

Dave and Gena live in Turlock, CA and have four grown children and one amazing grandson.


Are you feeling stuck in your faith walk? The healthy Christian life is one of continuing spiritual, emotional, and relational growth, but sometimes we feel stuck or stagnated at one stage of the journey.

Get unstuck and identify the next steps you need to take to grow emotionally and spiritually—no matter where you are or how long you’ve been following Jesus.
