David Saathoff ‘79

David Saathoff ‘79 was a member of the Mustang Basketball Team when he attended Thomas Jefferson High School. David was also involved in the Humanities and English accelerated classes. Although David did not consider himself to be a great academic student, he did enjoy hanging with, and learning from, the phenomenal speech and debate folks who also took those classes. David was never involved personally in the "one act plays," speech and debate competitions, etc., but was friends with many actors and debaters.

After graduation, David earned a degree in English, with a minor in philosophy, from the University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) in 1984. He has also completed graduate-level coursework at Southwestern Theological Seminary.

Currently, David is the Lead Pastor of CityChurch (formerly Bandera Road Community Church - BRCC). CityChurch has about 7,000 people – non-typical church attendees. The San Antonio media has branded CityChurch as "The Church That Rocks."

David offers the following advice to all Mustangs: “Involve yourselves in the kind of activities that will serve the common good of our city such as the Urban Renewal Project and multiple other parts of the Mayor's SA2020 plan." He mentioned that he and the church are trying to be more involved in the Mayor's plans for a better SA. Lastly, David shared, "Of course, continue to pursue a spiritual life - Jesus died so that common people of his day, and ours, might begin a relationship with God. There are many ways to pursue knowing God. Each must find their own path...”

Thank you David for this interview and for serving as a great role model for all TJHS Mustangs.
