Dave (Pastor) and Becky Conrads

Dave is a native Iowan who served at the University of Iowa from 1990–2000. He oversaw the Raptor Center and later founded the Iowa Wildlife Camps and School of the Wild. In 1993 he began following Christ. In 2000 he left Iowa for Grand Rapids Theological Seminary (Michigan) where he met Becky, where they both shared a desire to grow in their knowledge of God and the Scriptures, so that they might better represent Him and share Him with others. 

In 2005 they graduated from seminary (Dave - M.Div. in Educational Ministries; Becky - M.A. in Interdisciplinary Studies) and moved to the Iowa City area to plant Genesis. In 2013 Dave returned to the university full-time and currently oversees the UI WILD Department in the College of Education. They have three teens who grew up through the Iowa City Community School District (Kirkwood Elementary, Northwest Junior High, West High/Tate High) and one now at the University of Iowa.
