The son of a dynamic evangelist, Dave DiRaddo was perhaps destined for a life of public speaking. That destiny has taken many forms including teaching 8 years in a Pennsylvania public school district, preaching before congregations of 1500, singing in both church and public settings, conducting business seminars and performing hundreds of weddings both large and small.
Born in Philadelphia, married and the father of 2 adult sons, Dave graduated from Messiah College, (Grantham, PA) in 1980 with a Bachelors degree in education. After 8 years of teaching in Mechanicsburg (PA) Dave worked in the business world as well as helping to start a church in Carlisle, PA before serving on the staff of a large independent church in Camp Hill, PA. For 5 years Dave served as the Director of Administration for a computer manufacturing company with multiple duties including the development and implementation of various marketing and training programs. Today, Dave is the founder and pastor of Remnant Life Church in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania.
As avid Eagles and Phillies fans, Dave and his wife, Katerina have enjoyed a life-long love affair with the city of Philadelphia. He also enjoys reading, participating in sports and movies.
A highly sought after and in-demand wedding officiate, Dave counts it a distinct privilege to participate in such an important day and believes that everyone should have the wedding of their dreams.
“It is my job and responsibility to do all that I can to help make those dreams come true. Weddings are a time of celebration and I am honored to be able to play a part in bringing that to life in a way that will build memories that last a lifetime.”
