Business Staff

Dave Best / Business Manager | email

Dave prepares and analyzes monthly financial statements, and handles other accounting responsibilities for Family Life. He also enjoys working with donors, vendors, and employees to ensure that all financial and compliance reporting is presented and communicated in a fair, accurate, and comprehensible format.

Dave came to Family Life in 2004 after working as a CPA in public accounting and other industries. He grew up in Western PA, and received his accounting degree from Grove City College, where he met his lovely wife, Mindy. They were married shortly after graduation and have been blessed with a wonderful family.

Dave grew up in a loving home, and attended church and Sunday school from an early age. As a teenager, Dave was confronted with questions about the meaning of his faith, which tested his personal response to the claims of Jesus and challenged him to completely trust in the Lord for salvation. Dave chose to commit his life to serving Christ, realizing that the only true Hope that exists in this world rests in the person of Jesus.

Dave enjoys playing sports, cutting firewood, and camping with his family.

April Wright / Assistant Business Manager | email

April works in the business office along with Dave Best, taking care of the business side of Family Life. You could say she is like "Robin to Batman" except the Business Office doesn’t fight crime or have lights in the sky to signal trouble ahead. They do get to save the day when employees or vendors want to get paid, solve mysteries reconciling accounts, and face the dangers of the villain of paper and its lethal henchman the paper-cut.

Before coming to Family Life, April worked for 10 years in the hospitality industry. She also worked as an assistant business manager at a private Country Club for two years. As a long time listener, it was a dream fulfilled when April was hired in 2008 to become part of the team at Family Life. April’s favorite thing about working at Family Life is hearing the testimonies of how God is using this ministry to change lives and hearts.

April enjoys spending time with family, friends, and her wonder dog, Barnabas. God has blessed us and promised us abundant, grace-filled, adventurous lives, and April is the beneficiary of that blessing every day.
