Introducing David Brown - our Youth & Children's Development Officer

contact David at doycarmagh@gmail.com or 07557 655860

David is married to Wendy with two young adult children (Tom, 20) and Poppy (17), and has been in Christian Youth ministry since 1992 after graduating from the University of Ulster in Youth and Community work. 
David’s career/ministry has included work with the Corrymeela Community, as the Archbishop of Canterbury’s
Youth Advisor, and from 2002 to 2013 as the Director of the Church of Ireland Youth Department.
Latterly David has worked as the Lay Training Co-ordinator for the Church of Ireland Theological Institute.
He brings extensive youth and children’s experience to this role with Armagh Diocese but is keen to point out
that the “L” plates are back on with much to learn! 
Alongside family and work commitments, David is a keen cyclist, loves skiing and an avid Ulster and
Ireland Rugby supporter. By his own admission he is a “coffee snob” when it comes to a decent Cappuccino!
