Rev. David Loleng

Director, Church Financial Literacy and Leadership

David joined the Presbyterian Foundation in 2016 in a new role established after the Foundation was awarded a $1 million grant as part of Lilly Endowment Inc.’s National Initiative to Address Economic Challenges Facing Pastoral Leaders.



David oversees the Foundation’s programs and services related to the Lilly initiative – working to address the many financial challenges that diminish the effective ministry of pastoral leaders in their professional sphere.

He leads the effort to assemble a body of educational materials and tools for effective financial church leadership and administration and make them available to both pastors and lay leaders; develops a comprehensive overhaul of the PC(USA) congregational stewardship system (i.e., how Presbyterians view and raise funds for ministry and mission); and builds on existing and creates new technological means to deliver training, tools, and resources for pastoral and congregational leaders.

Prior to joining the Foundation, David served as Associate for Evangelism in the Presbyterian Mission Agency. He has more than 20 years of ministry experience in Presbyterian churches in California and frequently speaks about evangelism, discipleship, missional life and culture at conferences, camps, synods, presbyteries, retreats and churches. He holds a Bachelor of Arts (World Trade and Development) from the University of California, Davis and a Master of Divinity from Fuller Theological Seminary.
