Born into an ordinary protestant family in Belfast during the 1950s, David’s formative years were lived out against the backdrop of the Troubles.
Inevitably, his life was shaped by the violence that surrounded him. He became involved with a terrorist organisation, ending up with a hefty prison sentence. David believed that fighting for the Ulster Volunteer Force was a cause worth dying for but, while in prison, he had an encounter that would give him a new life and “a cause worth living for”.
David became a minister for Christ, and has been involved in various prison ministries and drug rehabilitation programmes, and is always keen to share his story of how he was saved by God’s amazing grace!
