After spending 35 years away from the nation’s capital he is thrilled to be back at his “home” church where he was saved, baptized, discipled and called into ministry. He, along with his wife Lisa, has been blessed with four children (three on earth and one in heaven) and two grandchildren. Both Dave and Lisa enjoy studying and teaching the Word of God. They are committed to authentic and transparent ministry that connects the God of Hope with real life challenges and opportunities.

Debbie and Rob

Debbie has been on staff since January, 2018. She and her husband, Rob, really love their McDonald’s coffee! The Lord has blessed them with two children and two grandchildren. They were both born and raised in Brockville but in 2017 sensed the Lord’s call to come to Ottawa (Jer. 29:11-12) where they have seen the Lord’s plans wonderfully unfold. Together they have experienced the life changing power of prayer and consider prayer ministry one of their highest callings. (II Chron. 2:7) They are excited to be here and are each a willing vessel for the Lord to use.
