Born and raised on the family farm near Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, David sensed God's calling to pastoral ministry in his late teens soon after he was graciously saved by the Lord Jesus.
Soon after his conversion, he began working on his undergraduate studies (BTh) at Briercrest Bible College. After graduating, God's calling led David from youth ministry in Whitecourt, Alberta to Desbarats, Ontario in 2001 to pastor Calvary Baptist Church. David was ordained to the ministry in April of 2005 by the Algoma Association within FEB Central. Then, in 2008, David pursued a graduate degree (MDiv) at Toronto Baptist Seminary and after graduating in 2010, David became the pastor of Grimsby Bible Church. In God's providence, He opened the door for David to become the pastor at Park Royal Bible Church in the fall of 2015.
David and his lovely wife Emily have 5 children: Micah, Joshua, Nathanael, Andrew and Layla. David loves to spend time with is family, read and golf.
