Unless you are an avid credit reader like me, you might not recognize my guest today by name. But I guarantee you will recognize his work. Dave Clark is a songwriter, publisher, and arranger who has lived in Nashville for the past 40 plus years. He has written songs for Rascal Flatts, Larnelle Harris, Sandi Patty, Donny Osmond, Glen Campbell, CeCe Winans, Al Denson… just to name a few. And he’s written at least one #1 song in four consecutive decades with more than 25 number one songs on the Christian Music Charts. I think Dave is pretty good at his job!

Dave Clark is a writer. It is not just what he does, but who he is. He left his home in Jackson, Michigan, when he was 17 and followed the song to Nashville, Tennessee. Forty years later he has penned songs for Rascal Flatts, Larnelle Harris, Sandi Patty, Donny Osmond, Glen Campbell, CeCe Winans, Al Denson… just to name a few. And he’s written at least one #1 song in four consecutive decades with more than 25 #1 songs on the Christian Music Charts.
He has been married more than 35 years to the only math teacher he ever had a crush on. He and Cindi met on a blind date, and he bought the ring two weeks later. Their home has known the laughter of three children. Allison, Anna, and Sam each bring a unique passion for life and are champions for Christ.
Nearly 30 years after graduating from high school, he enrolled as a first-time freshman at Nazarene Bible College and graduated Delta Epsilon Chi and ABHE Honor Society with a Bachelor's Degree in Ministry.
