Dave WineingerDave Wineinger, SEAMIST General Director

SEAMIST is blessed to have Rev. David Wineinger as our General Director. Brother Dave brings more than 30 years of ministry experience to SEAMIST. As a pastor and as a missionary in Africa, he found the faithfulness and power of the LORD to be enough to sustain him and his family in every circumstance.

Brother Dave is a senior missionary sent by World Indigenous Missions in Texas, USA. He came to Cebu Philippines to work with SEAMIST in 2007 where he has faithfully served as a trainor and leader while assisting with church planting, especially among the Aeta tribals in Negros Oriental. He is available to speak at conferences and seminars in the Philippines and especially likes to share about how to be blessed!

Dave and his wife Polly have three children, all married, and five grand-children. You can contact him anytime using the SEAMIST contact form.

SEAMIST Founders Richard and June Bartz came to Asia in 1991. They served in the Philippines for two years and then in Indonesia. In 2001, they returned to Cebu to establish and develop SEAMIST. Currently they are our Field Directors.
