David is married to Janet and they have three grown up children and four grandchildren. After having a house in Swanage for many years they retired some four years ago as a permanent move and became members at EBC.
David initially trained as a teacher and taught in London for fifteen years. Then after receiving a call into full time Christian ministry he trained first at Moorlands then at Spurgeon’s. He went on to pastor a church in Bexley Kent for thirteen years before becoming a Hospice Chaplain serving for some twelve years while also pastoring a village chapel. He is just delighted to serve the Lord in whatever capacity he is called but spends a lot of time caring for the church buildings which he describes as being “an interesting challenge”.
