founder and executive director, CityUnite
Dave Runyon is the founder and executive director of CityUnite, a role in which he acts as a consultant to faith, business, and government leaders to help them unite around common causes and make a positive impact in their communities. Dave is passionate about following the biblical commandment to love our neighbors and inspiring others to do the same. To that end, he started a neighboring movement in 2010 that has now spread to over 3,000 churches around the nation, an experience which prompted him to co-author a book with Jay Pathak titled The Art of Neighboring. Prior to founding CityUnite, Dave served as a pastor for 10 years at Foothills Community Church and The Next Level Church. He and his wife, Lauren, have four children.
