Dave Ebert Bio

Dave is an experienced improviser, actor, speaker, improv coach, and is a credentialed minister with the Assemblies of God.


Dave has a very unique resume as he credits most of his acting and improv training to his 8+ years traveling the roads of West Virginia, Virginia, and North Carolina as a pro-wrestler. 

Dave is the founder of Gifts for Glory Ministries, as well as the founder of both Well Versed Comedy and PureFest

Dave moved to Chicago to pursue a life and career in ministry to use his gifts for God's glory. Whether it be making people laugh during an improv show, moving the audience with a dramatic role, preaching the Word of God from the pulpit, or inspiring a crowd from the podium, Dave is right at home in front of a crowd.


Dave has been sharing his testimony and telling all about how God delivered him from depression and suicidal ideations, and now God is redeeming that 'lost' time through comedy, improv, and acting. This testimony has been impacting live crowds in and around Chicago, and around the world via podcast and media interviews, for the last 8 years.

Dave found the love of his earthly life in his wife Bobbie. The couple was married in June 2015, and they currently reside in the southwest Chicago suburbs with their three cats. They attend and are active in Thrive Church, Lockport, Ill. 

Dave is available to bring his testimony and a potentially life-changing and ministry-changing improv workshop to your group. Contact us today to get your next event in motion!
