Our staff

  • Pastor

    Pastor Dave is the Intentional Interim Pastor at Memorial. Before beginning his time here, he served at West Park (London, ON), South Delta (Tsawwassen, BC), Crossfield (Alberta), Calvary (Guelph, ON) and Snowdon (Montreal, PC), the Fellowship of Evangelical Baptist Churches as head of their Resource Center, and managed his own Christian bookstore.    

    After graduating from Grand Rapids School of the Bible and Music in Michigan, and earning his BA in psychology from Bryan College in TN, he and his wife, Carol, moved to Canada and have called it home ever since!

    Pastor Dave's desire is to see people grow in the wisdom and knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ, while loving them passionately, caring for them deeply and celebrating them significantly.   

    Pastor Dave and Carol have three sons, three daughters-in-law and five grandchildren. He is a lover of sports and, being from Michigan, is a faithful fan of all teams from that state, both pro and college. He has already met several like-minded sports fans at Memorial, so let the parties begin!
