Dave Jones grew up in Western Pennsylvania and spent most of his early childhood and adult life in and out of hockey rinks around the world; playing in cities such as Ottawa, Cleveland, Pittsburgh, Kalamazoo, and Grand Rapids. His love and skill for hockey lead into a professional career in Europe playing in many countries including Luxemburg, Russia, Slovakia, Switzerland and finally Germany.
Dave’s hockey career was followed with a four year tour in the Air Force, after which he earned a BS in Management Studies from the University of Maryland, European Division, and at the age of 27, he founded Marketing Ministries on November 18, 2001.
Under Dave’s leadership, Marketing Ministries was developed into one of the largest Christian advertising agencies on the east coast serving ministries such as Kenneth Copeland Ministries, J12, Rod Parsley and C3 Church. Dave also authored a book, Spend Less, Reach More -- a pastor’s guide to reaching more people.
For over 13 years, Dave has worked personally with Christian entrepreneurs, pastors, churches, and ministry leaders on their business and marketing strategies. And today, Marketing Ministries has served over 350 clients worldwide through consulting, brand strategy, marketing and advertising campaigns, social media, video production, web development and graphic design.
Dave’s personal vision is to unify excellence in the marketplace. And fueled by his passion for excellence and innovation, he co-founded The Reset Agency in June of 2010. He now coaches CEOs, executives, and former professional athletes to help achieve their vision, and works with organization leaders on their strategy, execution and communication, and managing the gaps between employees and management.
As a thought leader and highly motivated individual, Dave engages executive teams by consulting on analytics, oversight of talent initiatives, and one-on-one coaching. He helps leaders improve the effectiveness of their organizations, by utilizing practices such as strategic planning, organizational assessment, and team interventions.
