David Eymann makes his home in Estacada, Oregon, where he has retired from serving at Eagle Fern Camp. He was born and raised in Phoenix, Arizona, graduating from Grand Canyon University in 1975 with a degree in Music Education. His music training served him well as a worship pastor in several churches. David graduated from Western Seminary in Portland, Oregon in 1978 with a Master's degree in New Testament Studies. It was in the New Testament Greek classes during seminary that he first developed the burning desire to discover, on his own, accurate interpretations of the prophecies of the end times. He grew weary of being told what to believe, and "please don't ask questions."
David served as an associate pastor in churches in Tucson, Arizona and in Gladstone, Oregon. He then teamed up with a few other brave men to start a church-plant in the Parkrose district of Portland, Oregon. He stepped out of ministry for a time and worked as a construction contractor for a few years before coming to Eagle Fern Camp.
David's wife, Carol, has been an RN for many years, while still managing to raise six children. We called it tag-team parenting. God gave her a heart full of mercy, and for nearly thirty years now she has cared for some of the most medically fragile children in Oregon, at Providence Child Center.
