David has been married to Michelle for 22 years, and they have two children, Alee, 17, and Jeremy, 15. He has taught at Briercrest College and Seminary for the last 10 years, and before that, he pastored for 10 years in three different churches.

Both he and Michelle are dual citizens of the U.S. and Canada, but they have lived in Canada for 23 of the last 25 years. Until recently, they enjoyed motorcycling, but lately they've switched to convertibles so more of the family can drive. They have spent most of their time lately following their children around and attending their sporting and musical pursuits.
