Dr. Dave Gentry
Dr. Dave Gentry founded Westwood Ministries in 1989 and from then until August 2016, served as both Executive Director and Senior Counselor. Recently, after more than 27 years of leading, teaching, counseling and basically being the driving force behind Father’s work through Westwood Ministries, Dave Gentry has transitioned to his “Sweet Spot”. Not retirement per se, more like a series of purposeful Christ-filled events with people he loves to share life with.
Officially his title is now Director Emeritus. Unofficially, he keeps his phone off and his fishing pole handy. Dave will continue to devote time to writing books and leading retreats under the Selah Living banner. These events will be shared here on the Westwood Events Page. You can also join our newsletter to be notified of upcoming Selah Living retreats.
