Elder of Financial Peace University
Dave Weagraff was born in Syracuse, NY, and grew up in Pittsburgh, PA, where he attended Pennsylvania State University, earning a bachelor’s degree in accounting. He met the love of his life Marcy, also an accounting student, when he was a student there, and they were married in 1984.
Dave came to know Jesus as a teenager during a time when his parents recommitted their lives to the Lord. Following their example, Dave responded to God’s offer of salvation and was baptized as an older teen. Now he gladly serves Him in whatever capacity He is needed.
Dave and Marcy have served in many ministries through the years including children’s ministry, youth ministry, and leadership development. For the past few years Dave and Marcy have led the Financial Peace University team here at Grace. This ministry is dedicated to helping people get free of debt and understand what the Bible teaches about money and living out those truths.
Dave was certified as a CPA in the State of Minnesota in 1984 and has worked in various finance departments in industry since 1988. In 1995 he began to work for Alcon Laboratories at their Fort Worth headquarters as a Cost and Finance Manager and has worked for the same company ever since.
Dave and Marcy have three adult daughters; the older two are married (living in Carrollton and Lubbock, TX), and the youngest is in college at Texas A&M. Dave loves camping and hiking with his family, and just about any other outdoor low-tech activity. He also enjoys board games and playing cards with friends. Dave also enjoys long distance running and has successfully completed six marathons and would like to complete many more. He says that God teaches him a lot through the rigors of long distance training.
