Q. Where do you live & what's your local surf break / community?

We live in beautiful Port Elliot, South Australia. It’s about an hour south of Adelaide. We have a few surf breaks around our community just depends on conditions as to which ones we surf. Our most consistent surf break is Middleton.

Q. Any recent significant relationship / family news?

We have been married for 16 years and have 3 beautiful children and a well-loved dog called Lockie!

Q. What do you love about being a Regional Coordinator in CS?

We love the people! When we come together as a collective group it is just awesome! There is always good times, good laughs and good fellowship.

Q. How have you grown as a leader in your time within CS?

Every day presents opportunities to grow. We have definitely had our fair share of challenges and obstacles to overcome, but continuing to trust in God and believe He loves us so much and know that He has never let us go without anything. 

Q. What importance do you place on leadership within CS in your region?

We place a high level of importance on the leadership within CS. We really value our leaders and what they bring to our region.

Q. What challenges do you face in your role?

Winter!! And time! Running our own business and having a busy family creates its challenges as sometime there isn’t enough hours in the day. But we believe in this mission and are very passionate about serving our local surfing community and beyond. 

Q. What are your current hopes and dreams for 2019 and beyond? 

Everyone who knows Dave knows he loves his coffee! We would love to put a fridge and coffee machine in the back of our Ute to help us make new friends and build relationships within the surfing communities in our area. We would love to see new missions in South Australia opening up like, Yorke and Eyre Peninsular, Robe, Ceduna and Kangaroo Island and new growth in the South Coast and Mid Coast missions.

Q. For those that would like to support you and your role - what do you need and how would their support make a difference? 

We would encourage you to pray and seek the Lord. If God tells you to give, give with a cheerful heart (2 Cor 9:6-8). God has always been faithful to us. God feeds and clothes the birds of the air and we are far more valuable to Him than they (Matt 6:25-34).

God bless you all and thanks for reading a bit about us!
