The Reverend Dave Mowers has served as President of Baraboo Area Homeless Shelter since November 2018. Fr. Dave serves as priest at Trinity Church in Baraboo and at St John the Baptist Episcopal Church in Portage.
As local community leaders began to discern the need for a new homeless shelter organization in Baraboo, Fr. Dave jumped in to a number of volunteer responsibilities and then was surprised to be named as president of the board of directors at the organization’s initial board meeting. Fr. Dave cares about this work because he feels that serving homeless people is a basic practice of people who follow Jesus Christ, and that in tangibly serving the poor, we serve Jesus Christ himself.
Fr. Dave came to Baraboo in March 2017 from the Twin Cities. A native of Kirkland, Illinois, Fr. Dave holds degrees from North Central University and Bethel Seminary, and has completed additional graduate courses at Nashotah House Theological Seminary. Together with his wife, Elizabeth, an attorney, he has three children, and they reside in Baraboo.
