President, CZ Marketing, M.Div. '89.
Dave Goetz (M.Div. '89) of Wheaton, Ill., considers himself “a little of a hybrid.” Dave is president of CZ Marketing, which designs branding and recruitment strategies for colleges and universities and designs client retention strategies for small to mid-sized corporations. Before starting CZ, he was the new product development manager for Christianity Today, International. He led the team that created preachingtoday.com and the Building Church Leaders print and web franchise. He was the general editor for the Pastor's Soul series and for two devotional books for leaders. He has also written for Christianity Today, Christian History, Leadership Journal, and Marriage Partnership. He also just completed a book on suburban spirituality, which will be published by Harper San Francisco in January 2006. While God has clearly used Dave’s talents, Dave said, “I don't think much about whether God is using me. God has to sort that out, not me. I try to think more in terms of little obediences.”’
