David and Marlene grew up in British Columbia and attended Bible College in Alberta. God stirred their hearts to minister to new immigrants in Canada. They joined InterAct Ministries in 1999, moving to Calgary. Their approach is highly relational – live in community, learn the culture, and build bridges into the lives of people. As relationships grow, God opens doors to share the gospel with these friends or speak into the lives of new believers with the hope of seeing them become mature reproducing disciples. David and Marlene have 3 married children and 7 grandchildren.
