Though both Dave and Nicole were born in Ohio, they met at Camp CoBeAc (Houghton Lake, Michigan) in the summer of 1996. After the summer, they returned to Bob Jones University from where they would graduate in 1998. They were married in 1999 on the 3rd anniversary of the day they met.
In the fall of ’99, Dave began graduate work at BJU, while Nicole taught in the BJ Elementary School. After graduating in 2001 with an M.A. in Teaching Bible, Dave and Nicole moved to Michigan where Dave became the assistant director at Camp CoBeAc. In 2002, the Lord sent Landon to liven things up.
In 2003, the Lord moved the Smiths to Inter-City Baptist Church in Allen Park, MI where Dave taught Bible and Advanced Computers in the high school for 5 and a half years. He is now serving as the assistant registrar at the seminary and continues to maintain websites for the various ministries of the church. In 2004, Auburn came along to bring an extra touch of joy, in 2006, Dalton spiced things up with his presence, in 2008 Owen made us even again, and in 2009 Darren brought our number to a perfect 7.
