If you asked people to describe David the most common words you might hear them say (with a smile of their face) are; busy and crazy. However, it is the other words that describe David that make him the person he is; caring, generous, passionate, loyal and someone who selflessly gives of their time.
When describing David as loyal it doesn’t take long to see this trait carried out in his life. He is happily married of 35 years to wife Vicki. Together they have two adult children, Jason and Sherrilee who are both married to wonderful partners, Anita and Brendon. David is also a loving Grandad to Addison ,Tyler and Reuben, with another grand daughter on the way.
David has been a member of Morley Baptist Church for 28 years, and has held numerous roles during his time, including; Youth Group Leader, Worship Leader, casual preaching and he is also currently serving as an Associate Pastor (Pastoral) for the past year.
In David’s professional career he has worked for the same architectural design company The Buchan Group for over 38 years and is currently a Senior Associate.
There are many other activities that David participates in throughout the week, these include being the Chaplain for the 3rd Morley Boys Brigade and Bassendean Girls Brigade, mentor at Shalom House, a current member of Marketplace 98%, and a member of the Australian Christian Party.
Even though it may be a rare occurrence if you find David sitting and relaxing on the couch you can be sure that he is watching sport and his favourite team the West Coast Eagles might even be playing.
David’s heart for sharing the gospel with others and being someone who is willing and able to talk to anyone at any time really shines through in his daily walk with Christ.
