My name is Dave and even though I'm new to this position, I'm far from new to Amigo. I've worked with Amigo Centre on and off throughout the years and it's great to finally be back. I graduated with a degree in Youth Ministry from Spring Arbor University and I've been working with Youth For Christ and a local church since I graduated in 2008. Even though I'll be a teacher for the homeschool program, I'm looking forward to all I'll learn from the students and parents. Working at Amigo feels like I've finally come home and I can't wait to see how God will grow myself and the people around me through this opportunity. O/EE teaching grabbed my attention first in the spring of 2004 and I've been anxious to get back to it ever since. God uses nature to reveal Himself in mysterious ways when His creation is involved.
