When Daren is not loving his wife to death and having fun with his boys, Daren enjoys long walks in cold weather, writing, reading, listening to soundtracks, playing classical guitar and doing intense workouts.
Daren received his Mdiv from the Divinity School at University of London International Programmes.
Dave is married to Bethany and they have 3 children. Dave works at Square One World Media as a media producer. He loves to create things using microphones and cameras. Dave enjoys reading, playing guitar and eating nachos.
You may see Dave at Awaken setting up some sound stuff, playing guitar during the worship time or climbing up a ladder to pull wires out of the ceiling. He considers everything he does at Awaken to be a way of worshiping God. Dave and Bethany also oversee the volunteer schedule at Awaken. If you are interested in helping out, please track them down.
