Dave, Kelly and their three boys have lived in Oakville since 2003. Prior to that, they lived in Calgary where they led the Young Life ministry for fifteen years. Dave and Kelly met while Kelly was on Young Life staff in Seattle, Washington where she served as the Wyldlife (Jr. High) Director. They both attended Young Life when they were in high school and the ministry was vital in both of them coming to faith. It has been a huge blessing watching the influence Young Life is now having on their boys. 

Dave is currently the Vice President for Young Life of Canada in charge of the Field Ministry across the country. Having worked for Young Life for 32 years, he has a deep love for his neighborhood, his community and for young people to have the opportunity to hear clearly and respond to the great news of Jesus Christ. 

He is a hard core sports fan, loves the Calgary Flames and would be happy to try to grill almost anything on a BBQ.
